You might use Hungarian's assignment, one of such implementation is on FEX http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/6543
a = [1,1,1,2,2,3,3,3] s = {[3],[1,2],[1,2,3],[1,2,3],[1,2,3],[1,2,3],[2,3],[2,3]};
% Engine % Shuffle p = a(randperm(length(a))); % Distance matrix D = cellfun(@(x) min(abs(bsxfun(@minus,x(:),p)),[],1), s, 'unif', 0); D = cat(1,D{:}); [i cost] = assignmentoptimal(D); if all(i) && cost==0 p = p(i'); disp(p) else disp('No solution'); end
