sum

Sum of array elements

Syntax

Description

example

S = sum(A) returns the sum of the elements of A along the first array dimension whose size does not equal 1.

  • If A is a vector, then sum(A) returns the sum of the elements.

  • If A is a matrix, then sum(A) returns a row vector containing the sum of each column.

  • If A is a multidimensional array, then sum(A) operates along the first array dimension whose size does not equal 1, treating the elements as vectors. This dimension becomes 1 while the sizes of all other dimensions remain the same.

example

S = sum(A,dim) returns the sum along dimension dim. For example, if A is a matrix, then sum(A,2) is a column vector containing the sum of each row.

example

S = sum(___,outtype) returns the sum with a specified data type, using any of the input arguments in the previous syntaxes. outtype can be 'default', 'double', or 'native'.

example

S = sum(___,nanflag) specifies whether to include or omit NaN values from the calculation for any of the previous syntaxes. sum(A,'includenan') includes all NaN values in the calculation while sum(A,'omitnan') ignores them.

Examples

collapse all

Create a vector and compute the sum of its elements.

A = 1:10;
S = sum(A)
S =

    55

Create a matrix and compute the sum of the elements in each column.

A = [1 3 2; 4 2 5; 6 1 4]
A =

     1     3     2
     4     2     5
     6     1     4

S = sum(A)
S =

    11     6    11

Create a matrix and compute the sum of the elements in each row.

A = [1 3 2; 4 2 5; 6 1 4]
A =

     1     3     2
     4     2     5
     6     1     4

S = sum(A,2)
S =

     6
    11
    11

Create a 4-by-2-by-3 array of ones and compute the sum along the third dimension.

A = ones(4,2,3);
S = sum(A,3)
S =

     3     3
     3     3
     3     3
     3     3

Create a vector of 32-bit integers and compute the int32 sum of its elements by specifying the output type as native.

A = int32(1:10);
S = sum(A,'native')
S =

  int32

   55

The result is also a 32-bit integer.

class(A)
ans =

int32

Create a vector and compute its sum, excluding NaN values.

A = [1.77 -0.005 3.98 -2.95 NaN 0.34 NaN 0.19];
S = sum(A,'omitnan')
S =

    3.3250

If you do not specify 'omitnan', then sum(A) returns NaN.

Input Arguments

collapse all

Input array, specified as a vector, matrix, or multidimensional array.

  • If A is a scalar, then sum(A) returns A.

  • If A is an empty 0-by-0 matrix, then sum(A) returns 0.

Data Types: single | double | int8 | int16 | int32 | int64 | uint8 | uint16 | uint32 | uint64 | logical | char | duration
Complex Number Support: Yes

Dimension to operate along, specified as a positive integer scalar. If no value is specified, then the default is the first array dimension whose size does not equal 1.

Dimension dim indicates the dimension whose length reduces to 1. The size(S,dim) is 1, while the sizes of all other dimensions remain the same.

Consider a two-dimensional input array, A:

  • sum(A,1) operates on successive elements in the columns of A and returns a row vector of the sums of each column.

  • sum(A,2) operates on successive elements in the rows of A and returns a column vector of the sums of each row.

sum returns A when dim is greater than ndims(A) or when size(A,dim) is 1.

Data Types: double | single | int8 | int16 | int32 | int64 | uint8 | uint16 | uint32 | uint64

Output data type, specified as 'default', 'double', or 'native'. These options also specify the data type in which the operation is performed.

outtypeOutput data type
'default'double, unless the input data type is single or duration, in which case, the output is 'native'
'double'double, unless the data type is duration, in which case, 'double' is not supported
'native'same data type as the input, unless the input data type is char, in which case, 'native' is not supported

Data Types: char

NaN condition, specified as one of these values:

  • 'includenan' — Include NaN values when computing the sum, resulting in NaN.

  • 'omitnan' — Ignore all NaN values in the input.

Data Types: char
