Dear all!
I'm trying to get multiple values from a matrix by using a single
command.
Given a matrix A
A <- matrix(seq(1,9),nrow=3,ncol=3)
How can I get e.g. the values A[1,2] = 4 and A[3,3] = 9 with a single
command and without using any loop? My first idea was to generate a
row- and a column vector for the indices, i.e. c(1,3) indicating row
number 1 (for A[1,2]) and row number 3 (for A[3,3]) and similar for
column-indices. Then I've tried to call
A[c(1,3),c(2,3)]
but instead of 4 , 9 the result is
[,1] [,2]
[1,] 4 7
[2,] 6 9
Any suggestions?
Regards, Nils
