Jos, Thanks for your post. B results from a cumsum operation, so it would either ascending (e.g. [1 3 5 9]), or remain constant at some elements ([1 2 2 4]). In the example you provided, the second and fourth element are descending. I have put few other examples to illustrate my requirement. Thanks.

1) b = [2 0 3 4]
a = [1 2;
0 0;
3 0
4 0]

2) b = [ 0 3 7 10]
a = [0 0 0 0;
1 2 3 0;
4 5 6 7;
8 9 10 0]

3) b = [5 0 0]
a = [1 2 3 4 5;
0 0 0 0 0;
0 0 0 0 0]
