I am trying to find the sumation of matrix zero, when I choose one element from each row but different colum,
matrix 3 *3 has 6 posibility. Could you help me how to show all possiblities without repeating.
x=zeros(3,3);
temp=0;
test=zeros(3,3);
b=sum(x,1);
for i=1:3
temp=0;
r=randperm(3);
for j=1:3
if temp~=r(j)
temp=r(j);
if sum(x(i,:))==0 && b(temp)==0
x(i,temp)=1;
end
end
end
b=sum(x,1);
end
x

All six permutations of sums selecting one value from each row:
>> N = 3;
>> A = randi(9,N,N)
A =
8 4 8
9 6 7
8 1 5
>> X = perms(1:N) + (N*(0:N-1)); % linear indices
>> B = A.';
>> sum(B(X),2)
ans =
22

1. click on the link in my last comment.
2. click on the big blue button "Download" (top right of the page).
3. save the zip file anywhere.
4. unzip the contents onto your MATLAB path (e.g. into the current directory).
5. you are now ready to use combinator !
