The following matrix contains around 80 rows, representing 2-dimensional points (each row corresponds to a point), and 3 columns, containing each point's x-coordinate, y-coordinate, and an integer number indicating the group to which the point belongs to, i.e. (-1, 1, 2, 3, 4). The latter integer number, i.e. (-1, 1, 2, 3, 4), comes from a clustering algorithm and it is taken by scatter(x,y,sz,c) to color all the points according to the belonging group. Now, how can I change the colors of the groups of points? I do not know what is the reference color set or color map used by scatter(x,y,sz,c), but can I change it, for example to c = turbo, or other color sets?

As the documentation explains, you can set the colormap:
a = [37 98 1; 35 94 1; 33 97 1; 33 99 1; 31 96 1; 30 97 1; 29 100 1; 30 94 1; 31 90 1; 28 93 1; 21 63 1; 20 61 1; 22 60 1; 24 60 1; 24 64 1; 27 62 1; 28 65 1; 27 59 1; 23 57 1; 26 56 1; 27 57 1; 29 57 1; 31 60 1; 31 61 1; 31 64 1; 32 66 1; 36 60 1; 37 56 -1; 32 56 1; 31 54 1; 27 53 1; 13 43 2; 17 42 2; 17 40 2; 19 37 2; 14 40 2; 13 42 2; 10 41 2; 10 42 2; 9 39 2; 6 40 2; 25 20 3; 24 18 3; 26 18 3; 27 19 3; 27 21 3; 29 21 3; 30 22 3; 30 23 3; 31 26 3; 33 27 3; 35 28 3; 94 11 4; 95 10 4; 97 8 4; 94 8 4; 93 8 4; 99 12 4; 97 12 4; 98 15 4; 95 14 4; 91 15 4; 92 17 4; 91 19 4; 89 19 4; 87 21 4; 89 22 4; 86 23 4; 84 25 4; 81 25 4; 80 26 4; 82 26 4; 79 29 4; 82 29 4; 83 29 4; 86 28 4; 88 25 4; 91 24 4; 93 21 4; 94 22 4; 94 19 4; 95 18 4; 97 20 4];
scatter(a(:,1),a(:,2),[],a(:,3),'filled','s')
colormap('turbo')

Thanks @Rik, I did not pay enough attention :-)

You should not be using scatter. You should be using gscatter (if you have the stats toolbox) which has the capability you are asking for.
