There a another point set in 3D coordinates. How can I compute the standard deviation between the mean and another point set? I want to know how much the dispersion of the given point set from the mean point set. > > > > > > > > Thanks. > > Not sure I understand exactly what you're getting at, but how about: > std(S1(:)S2(:)); > where S1 and S2 are the 3D matrices.
But S1 and S2 have different number of size. Its like S1 is Mx3 and S2 is Nx3.
