# MATLAB: How to compare a vector A of real numbers with a vector of zeros using equalities and inequalities

matricesmatrixmatrix arraymatrix manipulation

Hi, I have a vector A mx1 which should be compared with a mx1 vector of zeros. In particular: for the first n<m elements I want to obtain 1 if they are equal to zero; for the remaining m-n elements I want to obtain 1 if they are less than or equal to zero. I prefer no loops. For example:
m=5;n=2;A=[0; 1; -3; 1; 5];
I want to get
C=[1;0;1;0;0];
Thanks

• C = [A(1:n) == 0;A(n+1:end) <= 0];
