Use the following to represent a list of 500 data points:
data = RandomReal[ParetoDistribution[1, 4], 500];
Now, I need to find the decay from a local maximum (typically as time^.
05)
The following illustrates my latest attempt to do this:
data = RandomReal[ParetoDistribution[1, 4], 500];
=E2=80=A8maxData = Rest[FoldList[Max, 0, data]];
=E2=80=A8t = Flatten[Range[1, {#[[2]]}] & /@ Tally[maxData]];
maxDecayed = maxData - (t^.5)*.1;
ListLinePlot[{data, maxData, maxDecayed}, PlotRange -> All]
But this only shows the decay from the maximum data values. I need to
set a local maximum when:
maxData > data >= maxDecayed
then begin the decay again from that point.
Note: you may need to run the code a couple of times to see the
condition where a data value exceeds the decay line, but has not
produced a new maximum.
I think I need a different approach to do this, which calculates what
I need in one pass through the list, "data" rather than calculating
maxData and t once then trying to calculate the decay.
So, I think I need a function, which would include the conditions that
either:
1. resets the local maximum and restarts the t count or
2. calculates the decays and increments the t count.
It would include something like:
Which[
data > decayedLocalMaximum, {data, 1},
(* new local maximum, restarts t at 1 *)
data <= decayedLocalMaximum, {decayedLocalMax - (t + 1)^.05*.1, t +
1}
(* local maximum still in effect so it decays and t increments *)
]
This should give me what I'd need for each successive data point's
calculation?
Then I could use that function, call it "localMaxDecay", in something
like:
FoldList[localMaxDecay, 0, data];
But I'm stumped.
- How do I set up the initial decayedLocalMaximum value (it should
equal data[[1]])?
- How do I keep track of t, the intervals since a local maximum
occurred?
- Will FoldList do this?
I'm not clear how to approach this. Any suggestions appreciated.
Thanks,
G
