Reproducible kernel crash

  • To: mathgroup at
  • Subject: [mg80114] Reproducible kernel crash
  • From: "Andrew Moylan" <andrew.j.moylan at>

The following code crashes the kernel the *second* time it is executed:

makeNoise[psd_] := InverseFourier[
     Sqrt[Join[psd, {1}, Take[Reverse[psd], Length[psd] - 1]]]*
       Fourier[RandomReal[NormalDistribution[0, 1], 2*Length[psd]]]]
psd = Join[Table[0, {8}], Table[2, {16}], Table[0, {8}]]; 
(ListCorrelate[#1, #1, 1] & )[makeNoise[psd]]

Can anyone figure out why?
