Array elements that are members of set array

`Lia = ismember(A,B)`

`Lia = ismember(A,B,'rows')`

```
[Lia,Locb]
= ismember(___)
```

```
[Lia,Locb]
= ismember(___,'legacy')
```

returns
an array containing logical `Lia`

= ismember(`A`

,`B`

)`1`

(`true`

)
where the data in `A`

is found in `B`

.
Elsewhere, the array contains logical `0`

(`false`

).

If

`A`

and`B`

are tables or timetables, then`ismember`

returns a logical value for each row. For timetables,`ismember`

takes row times into account to determine equality. The output,`Lia`

, is a column vector.

treats
each row of `Lia`

= ismember(`A`

,`B`

,'rows')`A`

and each row of `B`

as
single entities and returns a column vector containing logical `1`

(`true`

)
where the rows of `A`

are also rows of `B`

.
Elsewhere, the array contains logical `0`

(`false`

).

The `'rows'`

option does not support cell arrays,
unless one of the inputs is either a categorical array or a datetime
array.

`[`

also returns an array, `Lia`

,`Locb`

]
= ismember(___)`Locb`

, using any of the previous syntaxes.

Generally,

`Locb`

contains the lowest index in`B`

for each value in`A`

that is a member of`B`

. Values of`0`

indicate where`A`

is not a member of`B`

.If the

`'rows'`

option is specified, then`Locb`

contains the lowest index in`B`

for each row in`A`

that is also a row in`B`

. Values of`0`

indicate where`A`

is not a row of`B`

.If

`A`

and`B`

are tables or timetables, then`Locb`

contains the lowest index in`B`

for each row in`A`

that is also a row in`B`

. Values of`0`

indicate where`A`

is not a row of`B`

.

Use

`ismembertol`

to perform comparisons between floating-point numbers using a tolerance.To find the rows from table or timetable

`A`

that are found in`B`

with respect to a subset of variables, you can use column subscripting. For example, you can use`ismember(A(:,`

, where),B(:,`vars`

))`vars`

is a positive integer, a vector of positive integers, a variable name, a cell array of variable names, or a logical vector. Alternatively, you can use`vars`

`vartype`

to create a subscript that selects variables of a specified type.
