Compute average of each value in a matrix without using for

2 views (last 30 days)
Hi all,
I was wondering is it possible to alter each value of a matrix based on the average value of its neighbors, wihtout using for loops?
Thanks in advance.

It would eliminate a lot of guesswork on the part of people trying to help you if you could be much more specific about what you want to do, and ideally provide at least one example of the input and output you would expect from this.

You are right...
Well basicaly lets say i have
x= [0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0]
What i want is to create a new matrix that will be
newx= [0 0 (2/9) 0 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 0 (3/9) 1 0 0 0 0 0 0]
Here i randomly changed only two values to show that the get the average value of all the neighboring values.

you can use conv2 or imfilter, for example
x = magic(3)
y = conv2(ones(3)/9,x)
