I have 3D matrix of A(k,l,t) where t is time. I want to find the non zero min of each row for every t.
for t =1:10
for k = 1:10
f(k,1,t) = max(A(k,:,t)(A(k,:,t)>0));
end
end
it shows error ()-indexing must appear last in an index expression.
I was trying to use f = min(A(A>0))

A = rand(10,10,10) ;
for t =1:10
for k = 1:10
D = A(k,:,t) ;
D = D(D>0) ;
f(k,1,t) = max(D);
end
end

You can remove all the for loops and make it more effecient
A= rand(10,10,10);
A(A==0) = inf;
min(A)
Here I am just replacing the 0 with inf and then finding the minimum. This code even works for matrix with negative integers. :)

+1, Ah didn’t examine the code because OP mentioned row in the statement but in the code turns out to find for columns, good proposal then ;-) .In your code what will happen if a column is all zeros? Why do you say if that the second solution proposed by me will not work?, it was the continuation of your code after replacing zeros with infs. By the way when you said vice versa matrix has to be transposed that’s what permute() does , by the way min() function can be used to find the minimum along the specific dimension.If the dimension of A is dynamic then
permute(A,[2 1 3:ndims(A)])
