Hi, I am up for a problem which I cannot totally solve.
Imagine I have an array: testtimes=[0.2 1.2 1.202 1.205 1.209 1.8 2.1 2.6 2.604 2.606 3.601 3.603 3.605]; Now I need to find all series of values where the difference between values is less than 0.01. So for now I did this:
% reference = 0.01
% isitesttimes=diff(testtimes); belowBIthreshold=(isitesttimes<reference);
% belowBIthreshold = [false, belowBIthreshold, false];
% edges = diff(belowBIthreshold);
% rising = find(edges==1); falling = find(edges==-1); spanWidth = falling - rising; wideEnough = spanWidth >= 3;
% startPos = rising(wideEnough);
% endPos = falling(wideEnough)-1;
% allInSpan = cell2mat(arrayfun(@(x,y) x:1:y, startPos, endPos, 'uni', false))
However, the answer now is
allInSpan = 2 3 4
Which means that on position 2,3,4 in testtimes the values are postioned which have a difference less than 0.01. However, the correct answer in this example would be 2,3,4,5 (since also position 5 has a difference of less than 0.01 compared to the one on position 4) (apart from that 8,9,10,11,12,13 should also be in the answer but that has to do (I guess) with the cut-off/Span-Width of 3).
Can somebody help me out?
