AVOID FOR LOOP for changing size vector

2 views (last 30 days)
I need to solve this problem without a for loop:
B= (1:20)
A = [];
A(1) = 1/(1+B(1));
for k = 2:length(B)
A(k,1) = (1-B(k)*sum(A))/(1+B(k));
i.e. I need to know if it is possible to get information from previous calculation to create a vector, but without a for loop. Thanks.

Can't think if there is a way to avoid a for loop for that, but the vector size certainly does not need to change. You can presize A as
A = zeros( size( B ) );

Thank you! Actually I was trying to change the for loop at first.

I could understand you want to avoid use of loop. This can be done using vectorization.
Refer the following link which has few examples on how to do vectorization.
