Could someone explain what the code means

Hi guys,
If I have the following code:
z = 1:0.5:9;
for j = 1:9
functione = exp(-((W-w_o).^2)/deltaW.^2).*exp(-(Kx.^2+Ky.^2)/(deltaK.^2)).*exp(1i.*sqrt((W/c).^2-(Kx.^2+Ky.^2)).*z(j));
What does it really mean? Do I run the "functione" 9 times with z1=1, z2=1.5, z3=2, ...z9=5? So I never actually make it to z=9?
Thank you!

Comments on your code fragment
  • the end of the for-loop is not shown, thus it is not clear how the value of functione is used
  • functione is a variable with a really poor name
  • the statements of the loop are executed for z = 1:0.5:5
