stdevf
standard deviation
Syntax
s=stdevf(x,fre)
s=stdevf(x,fre,'r') or s=stdevf(x,fre,1)
s=stdevf(x,fre,'c') or s=stdevf(x,fre,2)
Arguments
x
real or complex vector or matrix
fre
real or complex vector or matrix
Description
This function computes the standard deviation of the
values of a vector or matrix x, each of them
counted with a frequency given by the corresponding
values of the integer vector or matrix fre who
has the same type of x.
For a vector or matrix x, s=stdevf(x,fre) (or
s=stdevf(x,fre,'*') returns in scalar s
the standard deviation of all the entries of x,
each value counted with the multiplicity indicated by
the corresponding value of fre.
s=stdevf(x,fre,'r') (or, equivalently,
s=stdevf(x,fre,1)) returns in each entry of the row
vector s of type 1xsize(x,'c') the standard
deviation of each column of x, each value counted
with the multiplicity indicated by the corresponding
value of fre.
s=stdevf(x,fre,'c') (or, equivalently,
s=stdevf(x,fre,2)) returns in each entry of the
column vector s of type size(x,'c')x1 the
standard deviation of each row of x, each value
counted with the multiplicity indicated by the
corresponding value of fre.
