RMSE - Root mean square Error

[EDIT: 20110610 00:17 CDT - reformat - WDR]
So i was looking online how to check the RMSE of a line. found many option, but I am stumble about something,
there is the formula to create the RMSE: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Root_mean_square_deviation
Dates - a Vector
Scores - a Vector
is this formula is the same as RMSE=sqrt(sum(Dates-Scores).^2)./Dates
or did I messed up with something?

Yes, it is different. The Root Mean Squared Error is exactly what it says.
(y - yhat) % Errors
(y - yhat).^2 % Squared Error
mean((y - yhat).^2) % Mean Squared Error
RMSE = sqrt(mean((y - yhat).^2)); % Root Mean Squared Error
What you have written is different, in that you have divided by dates, effectively normalizing the result. Also, there is no mean, only a sum. The difference is that a mean divides by the number of elements. It is an average.
Thus, you have written what could be described as a "normalized sum of the squared errors", but it is NOT an RMSE. Perhaps a Normalized SSE.

If you have the Image Processing Toolbox, you can use immse():
rmse = sqrt(immse(scores, dates));

How to apply RMSE formula to measure differences between filters to remove noisy pictures such a median , mean and weiner fiters ? how can i get the result or how to apply it . Rgards .

y=[1 2 3]
yhat=[4 5 6]
(y - yhat)
(y - yhat).^2
mean((y - yhat).^2)
RMSE = sqrt(mean((y - yhat).^2));

If I have 100 vectors of error and each error vector has got four elements, then how can we we find its MSE, RMSE and any other performance metric? e.g. If I have my desired vector as u=[0.5 1 0.6981 0.7854] and I have estimated vectors like as: Est1=[0.499 0.99 0.689 0.779], Est2=[0.500 1.002 0.699 0.77], Est3=[0.489 0.989 0.698 0.787],---Est100=[---],
Then Error1=u-Est1; Error2=u-Est2 and so on up to Error100=u-Est100. Now how can we find the MSE, RMSE and tell me others as well that are used to indicate the perofrmance of the algorithm. please tell me in the form of easy code.

Root mean square error is difference of squares of output an input. Let say x is a 1xN input and y is a 1xN output. square error is like (y(i) - x(i))^2. Mean square error is 1/N(square error). and its obvious RMSE=sqrt(MSE).
ur code is right. But how r dates and scores related?

x = hwydata(:,14); %Population of states
y = hwydata(:,4); %Accidents per state
b1 = x\y
yCalc1 = b1*x;
xlabel('Population of state')
ylabel('Fatal traffic accidents per state')
title('Linear Regression Relation Between Accidents & Population')
X = [ones(length(x),1) x];
b = X\y
yCalc2 = X*b;
legend('Data','Slope','Slope & Intercept','Location','best');
Rsq1 = 1 - sum((y - yCalc1).^2)/sum((y - mean(y)).^2)
Rsq2 = 1 - sum((y - yCalc2).^2)/sum((y - mean(y)).^2)
I also want to add MSE and RMSE calculations to this code. Can you help me?*
