Dear all, I would like to create a binary matrix (say matrix B) using the existing information from current matrix A. Specifically, for each cell (i,j) of matrix B, I want to replace its value with 1 if the value of the corresponding cell (i,j) of matrix A is within its k-th nearest neighbors value; and 0 otherwise. I only can get to the point where replacing each cell of matrix B to 1 if the value of the corresponding cell of matrix A is < THRESHOLD. Below is what am currently experimenting with. If I can get any tips how to efficiently improve the current code and correctly handle this, I greatly appreciate it. Thanks, Susan ******** local N=_N mkmat var1-var100, matrix(DistMatrix) matrix AAA=DistMatrix mkmat _all, matrix(A) matrix B=J(`N',`N',0) mata: mata clear mata: void underbar(string scalar A, real scalar thresh) { real matrix B real scalar i B = (st_matrix(A) :< thresh) for(i=1; i<=rows(B); i++) { B[i,i] = 0 } st_matrix("B", B) } end mat list A mata: underbar ("A", 50) matrix list B * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
