I am a relatively new user of Mathematica, and I am having some
trouble transforming a matrix. I would be appreciative of any advice.
The problem is as follows.
Given a randomly formed matrix of form:
0 0 1 2 2 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 2 0 1 2 2 2 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 1 2 2 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
Each digit represents a different state, and therefore each digits
position must be preserved. I need to convert this matrix into a
matrix of rates instead. The zeros will be converted into constant
rates dependent on their position, and the rate will continue until a
1 is reached. Both 1 and 2 represent a rate of 0. So given a vector
of rates:
40 38, 37, 36, 33, 32, 31, 30, 27, 23, 22, 21, 20, 16, 14, 13, 12, 10,
9, 6
I need to convert the first randomly generated matrix to look like:
40 40 0 0 0 0 32 32 32 32 32 32 0 0 16 0 0 0 0 9
40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40
40 40 0 0 0 0 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32
Besides the fact that the rate must stay constant until a 1 is
reached, the other subtlety of my problem is that when a rate starts
over after a 1 or 2, the new rate must begin in the position of the
next zero, but the rate must come from the position of the last 1 or
2. I can convert a matrix of this form on an individual basis using
the Position and Table commands, but cannot find an efficient way of
converting the matrix on a large scale. The matrix I actually need to
convert is 240*1000, so if anyone can think of an efficient way of
doing this I would be grateful for your input. Thank you.
