pwrLaw {astrochron} | R Documentation |
Generate power law (1/f) noise surrogates, following the algorithm of Timmer and Konig (1995).
pwrLaw(npts=1024,dt=1,mean=0,sdev=1,beta=2,fcut=0,nsim=1,genplot=T,verbose=T)
npts |
number of data points for 1/f surrogate time series |
dt |
sampling interval |
mean |
mean value for 1/f surrogate series |
sdev |
standard deviation for 1/f surrogate series |
beta |
power law coefficient. Positive number will yield a negative slope. |
fcut |
frequency cutoff: below this frequency a plateau will be modeled. Set to zero (default) for no plateau. |
nsim |
Number of surrogate series to generate |
genplot |
generate summary plots (T or F) |
verbose |
verbose output (T or F) |
These simulations use the random number generator of Matsumoto and Nishimura (1998). Power law noise series are generated following the algorithm of Timmer and Konig (1995).
