count of times if condition is met
put hits = 0; before the 'for' loop. You are resetting hits to 0 each time you check a new ptarget

Using bootstrp with matrices to bootstrap cross-correlations using xcorr?
Bootstrapping involves taking random resamples of the existing data to create datasets of the same size, but it is not exactly w...

How to makedisk for a three parameter weibull distribution
MATLAB's Weibull distribution only allows 2 parameters, so you must handle the offset separately. Try this: t0 = 0.5; % b ...

How to use fitdist or gevfit and force the GEV distribution to a specific type (Type I)
I think you want the extreme value type I or Gumbel distribution, which MATLAB seems to call the "ExtremeValue" distribution. S...

How should I organise data for unbalanced two factor anova analysis (anovan)
To start with, you have to make a table with 25 lines, one for each member of each group, and 4 variables for intensity plus one...

How to draw multiple random numbers from kernel estimated densities at once?
Can you reorganize your code so that you generate many random numbers at once from each density, store them in vectors, and then...

How do I fit gaussian function to data whose only information I have is the minimum, maximum and number of data points?
Mostly I agree with Alan, but I'd say that your guess for the number of standard deviations should not be a constant of 6 but sh...

Within Subjects Repeated Measures ANOVA - fitting a model
The first data table definitely isn't in the format that fitrm expects. Each row of the table should be a single subject from o...

How to bootstrap estimated Gamma parameters from sample 95% confidence
Generate 1000 (say) bootstrap samples from X. For each sample, compute the parameter estimates, so in the end you have 1000 est...

How to generate the convolution density and integrate it on [a,b] fastly and precisely?
If your random variables X and Y are independent, Cupid might be helpful. It defines a general convolution RV for any continuous...

How reliable is fitdist with regard to the gamma-distribution?
If your overall goal is to check on the accuracy of fitdist, then I think your method is flawed because the data you construct (...

Someone please help me, I have probability mass function as follwing, How can generate 100 random values of j from this probability mass function?
If you would like to generate 100 random j values, use the function KSSV gave you to generate the f values for the probability m...

How reliable is fitdist with regard to the gamma-distribution?
I think fitdist is doing the best it can, but you gave it a non-gamma sample to fit because you truncated the X range at 20. Not...

How to write function to generate gaussian distribution of normal numbers with specified mean, variance and number of values?
you must return something from your function: function x = distribution(va, mu, ul, ll, nvals)

Why the p value is so small in mann-whitney test?
I think you use ranksum like this: [p, h, stats] = ranksum (A,B) With your command, it is testing whether the A & B scores are...

How to find 'within group correlation'?
I would guess the idea is this: grp0 = t == 0; grp1 = t == 1; corr(x(grp0,:)) corr(x(grp1,:))
