variancef

standard deviation of the values of a vector or matrix

Calling Sequence

```s=variancef(x,fre)
s=variancef(x,fre,'r') or s=variancef(x,fre,1)
s=variancef(x,fre,'c') or s=variancef(x,fre,2)```

Arguments

x

real or complex vector or matrix

Description

This function computes the variance of the values of a vector or matrix `x`, each of them counted with a frequency signaled by the corresponding values of the integer vector or matrix `fre` with the same type of `x`.

For a vector or matrix `x`, `s=variancef(x,fre)` (or `s=variancef(x,fre,'*')`) returns in scalar `s` the variance of all the entries of `x`, each value counted with the multiplicity indicated by the corresponding value of `fre`.

`s=variancef(x,fre,'r')`(or, equivalently, `s=variancef(x,fre,1)`) returns in each entry of the row vector `s` of type 1xsize(x,'c') the variance of each column of `x`, each value counted with the multiplicity indicated by the corresponding value of `fre`.

`s=variancef(x,fre,'c')`(or, equivalently, `s=variancef(x,fre,2)`) returns in each entry of the column vector `s` of type size(x,'c') x1 the variance of each row of `x`, each value counted with the multiplicity indicated by the corresponding value of `fre`.

Examples

```x=[0.2113249 0.0002211 0.6653811;0.7560439 0.9546254 0.6283918]
fre=[1 2 3;3 4 3]
m=variancef(x,fre)
m=variancef(x,fre,'r')
m=variancef(x,fre,'c')```
