Hi, given the arrays
SP = [1 2 3 4 5 6 9];
T = [10 5 15 5 10 15 20 15 10];
M = [5 6 7 8 10 4 2 ];
G= {[1 2 1 2 1 1 1 2 3 4 4 5 4 5 5 4 4 5 5 4 5 4 5 4 5 4 6 6 6 6 6 6 3 3 9 9 3 9 6 9 6 9 3 9 9 9 6 3 3 6 9 3 ; 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60 65 70 75 80 85 90 95 100 105 110 115 120 125 130 135 140 145 150 155 160 165 170 175 180 185 190 195 200 205 210 215 220 225 230 235 240 245 250 255 260],[ 2 3 2 2 3 2 4 5 3 3 4 4 4 5 5 4 4 5 5 3 4 6 3 6 5 3 6 3 3 4 6 6 3 6 3 3 9 3 9 9 6 9 9 3 6 9 9 3 9 9 9 6 3 9; 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60 65 70 75 80 85 90 95 100 105 110 115 120 125 130 135 140 145 150 155 160 165 170 175 180 185 190 195 200 205 210 215 220 225 230 235 240 245 250 255 260 265 270]};
N= [5 3 8 9 8 10 9; 0 4 16 8 6 9 11 ]
SP indicated the number of diversity elements. T indicate a number that refers to each diversity (10 to 1, 5 to 2, 15 to 3 and so on). M indicate a number that refers to each diversity (5 to 1, 6 to 2, 7 to 3 and so on). G is the vector that we use to iterate. N has as many rows as the cell of G, and count the number of diversity that are contained in the first row of each cell.
Consider just a part of the first cell G{1, 1} (but I need to iterate on each cell):
I want to iterate on this vector and every time I meet a diversity element (indicated in SP) I want to do the following calculation.
M - length-value/T + N
Where M,T,N are the values corresponding to the diversity 1.
"lenght" is the final value of the second raw in G{1, :} the sequence, that is 260 in the first case.
"value" is the number still of the second raw of G{1, :} where I meet the first time the diversity.
For example, considering the element 1 the calculus will be
5 - (260-5)/10 + 5
considering element 3
7 - (260-45)/15 + 8
and so on.
N.B. considering G{1, 2}, where the diversity one is not included, the formula for one will be just
M - length/T + 0
May someone help me with this code ?

If I understood correctly:
out = zeros(size(N));
for row = 1:size(N, 1)
[isfound, where] = ismember(SP, G{row}(1, :)); %where will be the first column in G where SP is found, 0 otherwise
out(row, isfound) = M(isfound) - (G{row}(2, end) - G{row}(2, where(isfound))) ./ T(isfound) + N(row, isfound);
out(row, ~isfound) = M(~isfound) - G{row}(2, end) ./ T(~isfound);
end

I'm confused, in your example "considering element 3" you use 45, which matches where(isfound). if indeed you always want to use the first element of that row, then G{row}(2, 1), but what is the point of that 2nd row in that case? Also, note you no longer need the where output at all.
