How to randomly shuffle all elements of the vector except the first and last position?
I have vector A=[5 1.5 1.6 1.7 5] and I want to randomly shuffle 2nd, 3rd 4th element while the 1st and the last will stay the same.

This can be easily done by addressing the vector correctly. First you need a random order to shuffle your elements. You can do that by using rand and then sort:
so b will be the order. Now you need to use that to re-order your vector, let's call the new vector A2:
A=[5 1.5 1.6 1.7 5];
A2 = [A(1) A(b+1) A(end)]
Now you have a new vector with the first and last same as they were, but 2:4 have been randomly shuffled.
Hope this solves your question.
