# Adding Rows to a Matrix - camdmag - Apr 14 12:42:00 2005

Hi

Inside a loop I generate a (1X5)vector. At each step I want to
include this vector as a new row of a matrix. So, for example, after
10 times through the loop I will have generated a (10X5) matrix.

Is there a quick way of doing this?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Cal

hi cal,
if 'b' is the 1X5 vector generated inside the for loop, and 'a' is the
10X5 matrix that you need,

for i=1:10
%some processing to obtain b
a(i,:)=b;
%or a=[a;b];
end

regards,

Hi,

two solutions :

A=[];
for n=1:10
A=[A rand(1,5)];
end

or

A=zeros(10,5);
for n=1:10
A(n,:)=rand(1,5);
end

The second one should be faster because matrix A is pre-alocated.
