In the below code, We have a random population with structures Position (3D array) and Cost. I need to check whether a particular element present in the population If it does then I want to remove it from the population. I'm using 'find' function for doing it. It was working fine with arrays but with structures I'm getting error below error
_ Undefined operator '~=' for input arguments of type 'struct'_
Here is the code
clc; clear all;
varMin = -5;
varMax = 5;
D = 3;
VarSize = [1 D]; % Decision Variables Matrix Size
NP = 3;
empty_individual.Position = [];
empty_individual.Cost = [];
P = repmat(empty_individual, NP, 1);
addpath('E:\Dimensionality Reduction\DR & Optimization\Data\Objective Functions');
CostFunction = @(x) sphere(x);
%%Generating random population
for i = 1:NP
P(i).Position = unifrnd(varMin, varMax, VarSize);
P(i).Cost = CostFunction(P(i).Position);
end
xi = [1 1 1]; % xig
P = P(find(P ~= xi));

idx = 1:length(P) ;
P = P(find(idx ~= xi));

Define xi as a structure..And try using ismemeber etc.
