I want to find a matching vector present in other matrix.
For example I want to find the index of XL ,XR,XT,XB in A1 matrix
XL=[0.300000000000000,0]
XR=[5.70000000000000,0]
XT=[3,2.70000000000000]
XB=[3,-2.70000000000000]
A1=[0 0

I am using [C,ia,ib] = intersect(XL,A1,'rows') to find the position of XL vector in A1 but its not working. Can anybody suggest how to do

a=find(ismember(A1,XL,'rows'));
b=find(ismember(A1,XR,'rows'));
c=find(ismember(A1,XT,'rows'));
d=find(ismember(A1,XB,'rows'));

Lia shows which rows of A1 are matches. find(Lia) shows the row numbers of the matches.
Locb shows which variable (XL, XR, XT, XB) were the match.
find(Lia)
% ans =
% 3
% 21
% 31
% 41
% 44
Locb(Lia)
% ans =
% 1 % XL
% 3 % XT
% 2 % XR
% 4 % XB
% 1 % XL
From the results above, we see that rows 3,21,31, 41, and 44 are matches to [XL,XT,XR,XB,XL], respectively.

Be careful about the floating point numbers in your arrays. Consider using ismembertol with the ByRows name-value pair.
