When I run the following code, it gives me error on line 19. The code is:
c = 3e8; % signal propagation speed
fc = 1e9; % signal carrier frequency
lambda = c/fc; % wavelength
thetaad = -30:5:30; % look directions
thetaan = [-40 40]; % interference direction
ula = phased.ULA(10,lambda/2);
ula.Element.BackBaffled = true;
% Calculate the steering vector for null directions
wn = steervec(getElementPosition(ula)/lambda,thetaan);
% Calculate the steering vectors for lookout directions
wd = steervec(getElementPosition(ula)/lambda,thetaad);
% Compute the response of desired steering at null direction
rn = wn'*wd/(wn'*wn);
% Sidelobe canceler - remove the response at null direction
w = wd-wn*rn;
% Plot the pattern
hold on; legend off;
The error is:
Error using /
Matrix dimensions must agree.
Error in abc (line 19)
rn = wn'*wd/(wn'*wn);

Your multiplications in Line 19 give a 2 by 13 matrix in the numerator and a 2 by 2 matrix in the demoninator.
To perform matrix multiplication/division, you need the number of columns of the first to be equal to the number of rows of the second. So, a fix to your error may be this, but it depends what you are trying to do:
rn = (wn'*wd)'/(wn'*wn);

Sorry Sadiq, I wish I could help further but I am not too familar with the content of your question. Hopefully someone else is able to help out.
I did notice, however, that since you turn hold on, you can just run the code twice with each separate value, so maybe you can create a loop and function to meet your needs.

Thanks a lot for your kind response dear Anton Kogios. Yes, you are right. May be someone else may help me out. Thanks once again.
