Dear Carl, Thanks very much for your solution. I am getting somewhat different timings than you have. You have lm working about ten times as fast as localmaxima2, whereas on my machine I have lm about twice as fast as localmaxima2. It would appear that you're machine is somewhat faster than mine, but that doesn't explain the difference in the ratios of the times for the two functions (I get 55 secs for localmaxima2 and 28 secs for lm). I'm not sure what the reason for this is. My machine is a dual core intel, and I am on Mathematica v7. But thank you for the algorithm (apologies for late reply) but this is an interesting approach, and I might adapt that for some other problems I have. (My interests are machine vision). Thanks, Julian.
