intersect

returns the vector of common values of two vectors

Calling Sequence

[v [,ka,kb]]=intersect(a,b)
[v [,ka,kb]]=intersect(a,b,orient)

Arguments

a

vector of numbers or strings

b

vector of numbers or strings

orient

flag with possible values : 1 or "r", 2 or "c"

v

row vector of numbers or strings

ka

row vector of integers

kb

row vector of integers

Description

intersect(a,b) returns a sorted row vector of common values of two vectors of a and b.

[v,ka,kb]=intersect(a,b) also returns index vectors ka and kb such that v=a(ka) and v=b(kb).

intersect(a,b,"r") or intersect(a,b,1)returns the matrix formed by the intersection of the unique rows of a and b sorted in lexicographic ascending order. In this case matrices a and b must have the same number of columns.

[v,ka,kb]=intersect(a,b,"r") also returns index vectors ka and kb such that v=a(ka,:) and v=b(kb,:).

intersect(a,b,"c") or intersect(a,b,2)returns the matrix formed by the intersection of the unique columns of a and b sorted in lexicographic ascending order. In this case matrices a and b must have the same number of rows.

[v,ka,kb]=intersect(a,b,"c") also returns index vectors ka and kb such that v=a(:,ka) and v=b(:,kb).

Remark

NaN are considered as different from themselves so they are excluded out of intersection in case of vector intersection.

Examples

A=round(5*rand(10,1));
B=round(5*rand(7,1));

intersect(A,B)
[N,ka,kb]=intersect(A,B)

intersect('a'+string(A),'a'+string(B))

intersect(int16(A),int16(B))

//with matrices
A = [0,0,1,1 1;
0,1,1,1,1;
2,0,1,1,1;
0,2,2,2,2;
2,0,1,1,1;
0,0,1,1,%nan];
B = [1,0,1;
1,0,2;
1,2,3;
2,0,4;
1,2,5;
%nan,0,6];

[v,ka,kb] = intersect(A,B,'c')
A(:,ka)

• members — count (and locate) in an array each element or row or column of another array
• unique — extract unique components of a vector or matrices
• gsort — sorting by quick sort algorithm
