 Items(17) /2 Next >> Last >| Making discrete color table into a continuous one 3 56 (2/9/2010 1:46:38 PM) comp.lang.idl-pvwaveI have the color table blues :( Does anyone have any tips on how to make a discrete set of 25 colors into a continuous 255 element color table? The discrete colors are: rgb = [[153,153,153], \$ [21...Dave symmetric toeplitz and circulant question 2 35 (6/10/2009 3:07:36 PM) comp.soft-sys.matlabHi all, Does anyone know of a good reference describing the properties of symmetric Toeplitz matrices? I have a single example from a paper which describes that a symmetric Toeplitz matrix (m=5) is a b...Dave SPIHT compression and noise 1 93 (4/30/2009 7:51:21 PM) comp.compressionI have a rather basic question about SPIHT and other wavelet compression techniques... If I have an image with additive Gaussian noise that is uniformly distributed across the image, and I encode/ decode with S...Dave Interpolation matrix 12 24 (3/3/2009 2:40:23 AM) comp.dspI'm trying to define a couple of common signal interpolation/ resampling methods as a matrix operation, i.e. y = W z where, y is the interpolated data vector of dimension m x 1 W is the interpolation m...Dave Quaternions 0 30 (4/4/2008 12:06:30 PM) comp.soft-sys.matlabHi all, I am wondering if anyone knows of a way to smooth quaternion data? I have a long time series (1 Hz) of noisy (measured) quaternions that represents the attitude/orientation of a rigid body. I als...Dave postgresql queries 6 34 (1/11/2008 3:55:34 PM) comp.lang.idl-pvwaveDoes anyone know if there is a general way to connect and query a postgresql database from within IDL using linux and os x? My group has a few linux licenses for 6.4/7.0 but I'm using an older version of the s...Dave Cholesky inverse of a covariance matrix 9 163 (10/3/2007 1:06:05 AM) comp.lang.fortranHi all, I'm struggling to compute the inverse of a covariance matrix using Cholesky decomposition. Using the code from Numerical Recipes (NR), I can compute the Cholesky decomposition, L, of matrix A such tha...Dave Weighted least squares with minpack? 5 30 (9/19/2007 6:29:01 PM) comp.lang.fortranHi all, I'm fumbling around trying to figure out how to use minpack (lmstr) for a weighted non-linear least squares fit and I know it shouldn't be as tough as I'm making it. For weights, I'm using a full cova...Confused mpfit: multivariate fit 10 30 (5/8/2007 4:19:09 AM) comp.lang.idl-pvwaveHi all, I'm trying to use MPFIT to numerically estimate a coordinate transformation matrix that relates two sensors. One set is uncalibrated, and the other has a known calibration. So, I have a set of observ...Dave Zero padding and the Shannon information content 10 22 (3/16/2007 4:06:03 AM) comp.dspHello all, I am confused about how zero-filling / windowing a signal alters its information content and I'm hoping someone here can help. I have a continuous signal (time domain) and I Fourier transform it to...Dave

 Items(9) /1 iTools: lines too thick to publish? 5 25 (11/7/2006 5:11:51 PM) comp.lang.idl-pvwaveHello, I've just received some feedback from a journal that the figures I created with iTools has lines that are simply too thick for publication. I saved the figure as a vector-based .eps file so this isn't ... Help with numerical integration 4 38 (12/4/2006 10:31:47 PM) comp.lang.idl-pvwaveHi all, I have never been particularly fond of numerical integration and generally do it pretty infrequently these days. Nevertheless, I am trying to do a 'quick-and-dirty' atmospheric refraction/ray-trace ca...
