How to rewrite the nested for loop to modify matrix elments when matrix size is huge

2 views (last 30 days)
Hi I have the below matrix MN which is already pre-defined and I want to modify its elements without using for loop. Here I just set N=2 but in reality N is around 500. f(m) and g(n) are just user-defined functions. Is there a better way to rewrite it avoiding nested for loops?
N=2;
NN=N^2;
MN=sparse(NN*6,NN*6);
tic;
for m=1:N
for n=1:N
m_offset = (m-1)*N+n;
n_offset = (m-1)*N+n;
MN(m_offset,n_offset) = f(m);
MN(m_offset,n_offset+NN) = g(n);
end
end
toc;

To vectorize this, you must vectorize f() and g().
Also, building a sparse matrix this way is a bad idea. You should use the syntax,
MM=sparse(I,J,S,NN*6,NN*6)
