a = (1,3,4,6,8,9,0,5,4,)
b = (3)
c = (4,56,7,8,5,1)
a, b, c are saved in .vec extension
value = period_fun (2,1,1);
The above code is just for information
my actual isssue is here
idx = find (period_fun == 1.1); % suppose your are looking for 1.1 in period_fun
[a, b, c] = ind2sub (size (period_fun), idx);
I am trying to get the index of a, b, c
So when i run it. sometimes a carries more than one index
Suppose for eg for the code when i run it it get
a = 1,000 4,000
Expected answer is 1,000 but why did 4.0000 come?
How can we eliminate the other values?

x = [1 2 3 2 3 4 2];
locations = find(x == 2)
The output of this find call has three elements (2, 4, and 7) since x contains three instances of the number 2 at locations 2, 4, and 7. If you only want to find the first or last instances find accepts options to do this.
firstTwo = find(x == 2, 1, 'first') % Find the first 1 instances of 2
lastTwoTwos = find(x == 2, 2, 'last') % Find the last 2 instances of 2
As a side note, testing for exact equality with floating-point values like 1.1 could give you results you don't expect (see especially the first example in the common problems section on that page.) In that scenario you probably want to compare with a tolerance or perhaps use the ismembertol function.
x = 0:0.1:1;
find(abs(x-0.3) <= eps) % found element 4 in x

But is that the right eps? The value of eps depends on the range of the numbers you're considering:
>> eps
ans =
2.22044604925031e-16
>> eps(1)
ans =
2.22044604925031e-16
>> eps(100)
ans =
1.4210854715202e-14
>> eps(900)
ans =
1.13686837721616e-13
>> eps(mean(x))
ans =
1.11022302462516e-16
So what is the right argument to pass in to eps()? Not sure, so maybe using ismembertol() makes things more certain.
