How to overcome the error message in the script below;
PT_mj=[0 0.01 0.02 0.03
0 0 0.045 0.05
0 0 0 0.06];
PT_jm=PT_mj' ;
for i=2:m
for j=1:(m-1)
if j~=i
if i~=(m-2) | j~=(m-1)

Please post the complete error message and mention, which line causes the error. I currently do not see a problem, which could cause the (partially) posted message. Please edit the original message and do not provide the additional information as comment or answer.
Please choose a short title, and include all information required to understand the problem, in the body of the question. Thanks.

Hi there problem is with
m here is 4, but the size of PT_mj is [3,4] so the matrix access below won't work
What are you trying to do generally? (if its not recursive we can do it without loops probably) Mark

I do not understand, why "i=2:m" should cause troubles here. Could you elaborate this? The error message does not belong to an out-of-range indexing.

Hi Jan
The error I get is
??? Index exceeds matrix dimensions.
Since PT_mj is a [3*4] matrix and we are trying to access PT_mj(i,j) where i =4, I get this error. I take it you're getting a different error then?
prevents the error, but since I can't get my head around the intended behaviour of the code I doubt if this is really a fix. Especially since with this "fix, " deltalambda_2 is now all zeroes, and that line could be further resolved to
which is a kind of unlikely trivial simplification unless the algorithm is totally misspecified. Without understanding more fully the context, I can't make any progress myself. Maybe you'll have more luck.
