how to find nearest values of all elements of a matrix to another matrix in matlab

27 views (last 30 days)
hi all, i have 2 matrices of different size(11527*1 and 112813*1) .i want to find the nearest values(distance between the two element <= some condition(say <=2)) of each element of matrix 1 (11527*1) with respect to matrix 2 (112813*1). The result should be of the size of matrix 1. Can anyone help me? one corresponding figure is given.

A = [1 5 7 3 2 8]
B = [4 12 11 10 9 23 1 15]
TMP = bsxfun(@(x,y) abs(x-y), A(:), reshape(B,1,[]))
[D, idxB] = min(TMP,[],2)
Result = B(idxB)
TFDiffLessThen3 = D < 3 % different outcome than in your example??

Take a look at NEARESTPOINT as this function does exactly what you want and is pretty damn fast, if I say so myself :-)

With vectors as large as these it could very well be advisable to sort the second vector. Let A be the first 11527 x 1 vector and B the second 112813 x 1 vector.
T = sort(B);
[~,ix] = histc(A,[-inf;(T(1:end-1)+T(2:end))/2;inf]);
Result = T(ix);
Diff3 = abs(Result-A)<3;

@Roger. True! Apparently, histc does now accept also non-strictly increasing edges ...

I think this may help:
A = [1 5 7 3 2 8]';
B = [4 12 11 10 9 23 1 15]';
I = knnsearch(B,A);
R = B(I) % Result
R = 6×1
1 4 9 4 1 9
D = abs(A-R)
D = 6×1
0 1 2 1 1 1
