MULTIDIMENSIONAL ARRAYS
1
TWO-DIMENSIONAL ARRAY
Allow for the creation of table-like data structures with a row and
column format. The first subscript is a row index in a table while the
second subscript is a column index in a table.
Declaration
type[][] name = new type [row size][col size]
0
Examples
int [][] grid = new int[3][4];

DECLARATIONS
int[][]table = new int[3][4];
int[][] table = { {0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,0},
{0,0,0,0} };
Think of a 2D Array as
An Array of Arrays

REFERENCING ELEMENTS OF 2D ARRAY
int[][] grid = new int[3][5];
for (int row = 0; row < 3; row++){
for (int col = 0; col < 5; col++){
grid[row][col] = row + col;
}
}

PASSING TWO-DIMENSIONAL ARRAYS TO METHODS
public void printTable (int[][] table){
for (int row = 0; row < table.length; row++){
for (int col = 0; col < table[row].length; col++){
System.out.printf(“%4d”, table[row][col]);
}
System.out.println();
}
}

LETS TRY SOME CODE
Write a piece of code that constructs a two-dimensional
array of integers named table with 5 rows and 10 columns.
Fill the array with a multiplication table, so that array
element [i][j] contains the value i * j. Use nested for loops to
build the array.

MULTIPLICATION TABLE
int[][]
table
= new
int[5][10];//declaration
int[][]
table
= new
int[5][10];//declaration
= i0;< itable.length;
< 5; i++) { i++) {
for for
(int (int
i = i0;
= j0;< jtable[i].length;
< 10; j++) { j++) {
for for
(int (int
j = j0;
table[i][j]
table[i][j]
= i =* j;i * j;
} }
} }
9
Write a method named matrixAdd that accepts a pair of
two-dimensional arrays of integers as parameters, treats
the arrays as 2D matrices and adds them, returning the
result. The sum of two matrices A and B is a matrix C where
for every row i and column j, Cij = Aij + Bij. You may assume
that the arrays passed as parameters have the same
dimensions.
10
int rows = a.length;
int cols = 0;
if (rows>0){
cols=a[0].length;
}
int[][]sum= new int[rows][cols];
//declare sum matrix
for(int r=0;r<a.length;r++){
for(int c=0;c<a[r].length;c++){
sum[r][c]=a[r][c] +b[r][c];
}
}
return sum;
}
