Hi,
I would like to use the R's outer function on y below so that I can subtract
elements from each other. The resulting dataframe is symmetric, save for the
negative signs on the other half of the numbers. I would like to get only
half of the dataframe. Here is the code I wrote (it is returning only the
first line of the all elements I want. Please help).
y<-c(4,4,3.9,3.8,3.7,3.6,3.5,3.5,3.5,3.3,3.2,3.2)
b<-outer(y,y,"-")
b<-as.matrix(by)
# I want to keep the elements:
#b[1,2:12],
#b[2,3:12],
#.........until
#b[11,12:12].
#Here is the function I wrote to get half of matrix:
wk<-function(p){
for (i in 2:p){
ri<-b[i-1,i:p]
return(ri)
}
}
wk(12)
#[1] 0.0 0.1 0.2 0.3 0.4 0.5 0.5 0.5 0.7 0.8 0.8
As you can see, it is only returning the first line. I would like other
corresponding elements too, to be found in row 2 to 12. Thanks.
