extracting nonpivot columns from a matrix
33 views (last 30 days)
Hi, I have a function nonpuvotcols that takes a matrix as input and produces a matrix consisting of the nonpivot columns. For the last step of my code, I need to extract all the nonpivot colums from the input matrix, but I think I'm only extracting the last nonpivot column from the matrix.
% Returns the nonpivot columns from the matrix A
function npc = nonpivotcols(A)
% determine n the number of columns of A
[m, n_plus_one] = size(A)
n = n_plus_one-1
% use rref to obtain a list of the pivot columns of A (pcols)
% from the list of all columns 1:n remove pcols to obtain a list of the nonpivot columns (fcols)
%% Getting columns which if fcol
%(HELP) extract the nonpivot columns from A
npc = A(:,fcols);
This is my code. Please help me for the last commented part, which is to extract all the nonpivot columns.
A = [ 1 1 2 2 3 3; 4 4 5 5 6 6; 7 7 8 8 9 9]
[R, pcols] = rref(A)
And here is the code to call the function.
