cX = ismember(xy_ordered,x);
cY = ismember(xy_ordered,y);

The vectors cX and cY are logical vectors which contain true's and false's. To transform them to 1's and 0's, apply "double" to them. Note that if a number lies in both x and y, there will be a 1 (true) in both cX and cY in the same position. It is not necessary that x, y, or xy_ordered be ordered for this code to operate.
