How to generate Joint frequency distributions from a mxn Matrix
Posted:

I have three column but i can avoid first one which has time value. In details: Column T has value of time as second t=1:1:1400; Column A has value of velocity/speed and it has 1400 speed values from 0(zero) to 100(hundred). In this case some velocity values repeats after uncertain interval. Column B has value of acceleration and it has 1400 acceleration/deccelaration values from 4(minus four) to +4(four). In this case some acceleration values has repetition.
Now i want to generate a mxn matrix where every position will be a frequency which can full fill one condition from A and same time one corresponding B condition.
I subdivided velocity column into several group, such as: 0 to 5, 5 to 10, 10 to 15, 15 to 20 .........90 to 95 and 95100.
Similarly i subdivided acceleration column into several group such as: 4 to 3, 3 to 2 ...... 2 to 3 and 3 to 4.
Then, i will count frequency such a way that it will full fill both columns same row with those condition.
As an example: if i look at the previous posts Column A. And Column B, then i have to find out how many times/frequency the below conditioned fullfilled?
If velocity range : 30 to 35 m/s and acceleration at the same time/row in 0.5 to 0.25 range ? According to example it has frequent/count 3! If velocity range same but acceleration condition changed to 0.25 to 0 then it has frequency 1.
I think this time my illustration is better as if it is possible to show you by showing picture or figure by attaching here it will be easy to explain what i am planning for!
Here I am showing an example in below links: [URL=http://imageshack.us/photo/myimages/706/captureyt.png/][IMG]http://imageshack.us/a/img706/3983/captureyt.png[/IMG][/URL]
