Let A be matrix
A(:,1:2:end) = [] % remove odd columns
A(:,3) = [] % remove third column
idx = [1 2 5 7] ;
A(:,idx) = [] % remove columns specified in idx

Let the matrix be a.
You can remove the odd columns of a matrix by :
a(:,1:2:end) = []
% 1:2:end runs a loop from 1 till the numbe rof columns, increments the index by 2 every time and
% empties the column with that index.
Or use the following command to remove and column with index 'i'
a(:, i) = []
