Hi,

Anyone here can help me transforming this Matlab code to LabVIEW?

**varA.*varB**

varA and varB is a 2D array.

Thanks....

Look at this thread, which goes over a similar issue. You can also look at the following resources:

Working with .m Files in LabVIEW for Text-Based Signal Processing, Analysis, and Math

Hope this helps. Good luck!

I am not sure why you call this thread "dot product", because the dot product is typically defined for vectors (1D arrays) and not for 2D Arrays. Can you clarify what result you expect? Is one of the dimensions of your 2D arrays guaranteed to be of size=1?

Darin,

Oops, I forgot that the Matlab dot-star operator is, indeed, element-by-element multiplication, analogous to the inner product of vectors! Thanks for clarifying this! It is still good to see that, if you know what you want to do (e.g. multiply two matrices or do element-by-element multiplication of two 2-D arrays), there's a native and intuitive way to do it in LabVIEW.
