Well, on its own
x=rand(1x8388608); f=abs(x);
was no problem here w/ a machine w/ only 1GB actual memory on either R121 or R2012b so by itself size wouldn't appear to be the issuehow much other memory is being used at the time?
The combination of x and f above is only 128 MB; it almost certainly requires another complex of the same size as working space plus some other additional...
What error is givenis it memory or something else?
Post any error messages and the result of
whos
and/or
memory
