mad
mean absolute deviation
Syntax
s2=mad(x)
s2=mad(x,'r') or s2=mad(x,1)
s2=mad(x,'c') or s2=mad(x,2)
Arguments
x
real or complex vector or matrix
Description
This function computes the mean absolute deviation of a
real or complex vector or matrix x.
For a vector or matrix x, s2=mad(x)
returns in scalar s2 the mean absolute deviation
of all the entries of x.
s2=mad(x,'r') (or, equivalently, s2=mad(x,1))
returns in each entry of the column vector s2
the mean absolute deviation of each column of x.
s2=mad(x,'c') (or, equivalently, s2=mad(x,2))
returns in each entry of the column vector s2
the mean absolute deviation of each row of x.
