D' structure from D structure calculating.

D' structure from D structure calculating.

D' structure from D structure calculating.

It is about programming on matlab. I have a structure of D elements with their indexes and their values. I want from this structure to calculate a new quantity D'.

For indexes i=1 to p=6, it is simple: D'_i = D_i.

For _i_j_k...to p , it is more complicated. D'_i_j_k...to p = D_i_j_k...to p - sum All D_i_j_k...to p-1 - sum All D_i_j_k - sum All D_i_j - sum All D_i.
It is better to see these three examples to understand:

D'_1_4 = D_1_4 - D_1 -D_4

D'_1_3_5 = D_1_3_5 - D_1_3 - D_1_5 - D_3_5 - D_1 - D_3 - D_5

D’_1_2_3_4_5_6 = D_1_2_3_4_5_6 – (D_1_2_3_4_5 + D_1_2_3_4_6 + D_1_2_3_5_6 + D_1_2_4_5_6 + D_1_3_4_5_6 + D_2_3_4_5_6)- (D_1_2_3_4 + D_1_2_3_5- D_1_2_3_6 + D_2_3_4_5 + D_2_3_4_6 + D_3_4_5_6 )- (D_1_2_3 + D_1_2_4 + D_1_2_5 + D_1_2_6 + D_2_3_4 + D_2_3_5 + D_2_3_6+ D_3_4_5 + D_3_4_6 ) – (D_1_2 + D_1_3 + D_1_4 + D_1_5 + D_1_6 + D_2_3 + D_2_4 + D_2_5 + D_2_6 + D_3_4 + D_3_5 + D_3_6 + D_4_5 + D_4_6) – ( D_1 + D_2 + D_3 + D_4 + D_5+ D_6)

I hope get a new structure r' which is the same bu with D'_. Thanks before.

RE: D' structure from D structure calculating.

See the following example on how to automate the process:


r.D_1= 79.3927;
r.D_2= 141.8463;
r.D_3= -126.6688;
r.D_4= 167.2028;
r.D_5= 547.2340;
r.D_6= 10.5369;
r.D_1_2= 98.8763;
r.D_1_3= -140.9858;
r.D_1_4= 95.0552;
r.D_1_5= 458.3821;
r.D_1_6= -48.7647;
r.D_2_3= -107.6000;
r.D_2_4= 170.8630;
r.D_2_5= 409.5086;
r.D_2_6= 54.4450;
r.D_3_4= -128.2986;
r.D_3_5= 798.2442;
r.D_3_6= -157.5395;
r.D_4_5= 543.9655;
r.D_4_6= 41.6689;
r.D_5_6= 326.9267;

for i=1:6
for i=1:6
    for j=i+1:6
        rnew.(str1)=r.(str1) - r.(str1([1,2,3])) - r.(str1([1,4,5]));
