Why my function do not work and gives me an error message?
1 view (last 30 days)
function [y] = SEM(x)
% Find out the each column of standard error for a matrix
% x should be a nxm matrix or 1xm
y = nanstd(x)./sqrt(length(x) - sum(isnan(x)));
Subscript indices must either be real positive integers or logicals. Error message: Subscript indices must either be real positive integers or logicals.

Most likely, you have a variable called SEM in your workspace which shadow your SEM function. Hence you're indexing that variable instead of calling the function. Get rid of that variable or rename it.
Note that your sem function will give incorrect results for matrices that have more columns than rows because of the use of length. I would strongly recommend replacing length(x) by size(x, 1) but that is irrelevant for your error.

you used indices, you should make sure you are using integers as indices or make sure you are using vectors or matrices
