Hi, I have a problem to display the output. Can someone help me to solve this? Thanks a lots!
Below here are the codes:
for i = 1:3
trans_matrix = trans_matrix + diag(ones(N-i,1),i);
end
b = [];
end
b = trans_matrix(:,snake_Tail(n));
b = [];
end
b = trans_matrix;
trans_matrix = (1/3)*b;
b = [];
ITERATIONS = 200;
d=zeros(1,ITERATIONS);
for i = 1:200
b = trans_matrix^i;
d(i) = b(N+1,1);
end
b=[];
At the command window there it shows the error of this.

trans_matrix = zeros(25,25);
snake_Tail = [5, 12, 19];
N = 25;
Mathieu NOE Hi, this is the initilaized code that you mention

You're trying to index b. So let's explore the values involved:
for i = 1:200
b = trans_matrix^i;
disp(b)
disp(N+1)
d(i) = b(N+1,1);
end

Index in position 1 exceeds array bounds. Index must not exceed 25.
So you have a 25x25 matrix, and you try to get the first value from the 26th row. It doesn't exist, so Matlab throws the error.
Since you didn't include any comments in your code and used obfuscating names like b and d as variable names, it is impossible to understand what is happening or what the intended function was. It is therefore extremely difficult to suggest a change in your code.
This is about as self-documenting before minifying it as afterwards:
v000=zeros(25,25);v001=[3, 9, 17];v002=[7, 18, 24];v003=[16, 20, 23];v004=...
[5, 12, 19];v005=25;for v006=1:3,v000=v000 + diag(ones(v005-v006,1),v006);
end,for v007=1: length(v001),v008=v000(:,v002(v007));v000(:,v002(v007))=...
v000(:,v001(v007)) + v008;v000(:,v001(v007))=zeros(1,v005);v008=[];end,for ...
v007=1: length(v003),v008=v000(:,v004(v007));v000(:,v004(v007))=v000(:,...
v003(v007)) + v008;v000(:,v003(v007))=zeros(1,v005);v008=[];end,v008=v000;
v000=(1/3)*v008;v008=[];v009=200;v010=zeros(1,v009);for v006=1:200,v008=...
v000^v006;v010(v006)=v008(v005+1,1);end,v008=[];
