How to fill the remaining "N" number of rows, of an already populated vector, with zeros

60 views (last 30 days)
It may be confusing, so let me explain. The "GV" data I provided has values in it. It is size (18,001 x 1). I want the to fill the remaining "N" number of rows with zeros. So it may be a (20,000 x 1) or perhaps a (30,000 x 1) vector, but still with the first 18,001 rows filled with the "GV" values. How to do this??
Thank you in advance!

Here is an example. 1) Let's first make a random vector of the size you have specified and 2) fill the vector with zeros so that it reaches 20000 rows.
GV=rand(18001,1);
GV(end+1:20000)=0;

% ... Compute GV
GV(20000)=0 % if you are sure 20000>length(GV), if not protect with IF

Alternatively, and perhaps more efficient depending upon how GV is generated/obtained...
GV(Ntotal,1)=0; % preallocate (could also write zeros(Ntotal,1) )
GV(1:N)=GVcalculation(1:N); % put the calculation results in first N locations
Which way is more effective depends on the details we don't know...
