I have a matrix a = [2 4 7 11; 7 9 5 54; 2 5 7 9; 12 41 45 21];
How to get the row matrix such that the elements of matrix a are arranged digonally upwards from the left .
For exapmle the row matrix should me [2 7 4 2 9 7 12 5 7 11 41 7 54 45 9 21];

a =
2 4 7 11
7 9 5 54
2 5 7 9
12 41 45 21
The main anti-diagonal has values [12,5,5,11] (from bottom left to top right), but your example output shows the values [...,12,5,7,11,...]: please clarify the correct expected values.

sir, it is ...12, 5, 5,11..... It is a typing mistake. Sorry for this.

sz = size(a);
rowMat = zeros(1,prod(sz));
ind = 1;
for i = 1:sz(1)
j = 1;
ii = i;
while ii>0 && j<=i
rowMat(ind) = a(ii,j);
ind = ind+1;
j = j+1;
ii = ii-1;
end
if i == sz(1)
for j = 2:sz(2)
ii = i;
jj = j;
while ii>1 && jj<=i
rowMat(ind) = a(ii,jj);
ind = ind+1;
jj = jj+1;
ii = ii-1;
end
end
end
end
a
