# Re: set manipulation

hi,

try :

In[1]:=
data2D = {{4.4, 14}, {6.7, 15.25},
{6.9, 12.8}, {2.1, 11.1}, {9.5, 14.9},
{13.2, 11.9}, {10.3, 12.3}, {6.8, 9.5},
{3.3, 7.7}, {0.6, 5.1}, {5.3, 2.4},
{8.45, 4.7}, {11.5, 9.6}, {13.8, 7.3},
{12.9, 3.1}, {11, 1.1}};
In[2]:=<<DiscreteMath`ComputationalGeometry` In[3]:=delval =
DelaunayTriangulation[data2D];

make lists {{z[1,2],z[1,5],...},,,} with a dummy function z:

now change indices to point coordinates : In[14]:=o2=o1/.z[u_ ,v_
]:>w[data2D[[u]],data2D[[v]] ];

now replace dummy fiunction w by your angle formula, either ArcTan[x/y]
...
In[15]:=o3=o2/.w[{x1_,y1_},{x2_,y2_}]:>ArcTan[(y2-y1)/(x2-x1)];

... or ArcTan[x,y] , check the help file!
In[16]:=o4=o2/.w[{x1_,y1_},{x2_,y2_}]:>ArcTan[(x2-x1),(y2-y1)];

if you want averages, add'm & count'm:
In[17]:=o5=((Plus@@#)/Length[#])&/@ o4;

finally, line'm up for presentation : In[18]:=o6 =
Transpose[{Range[Length[o5]],o5}] Out[18]=
{{1, -0.730339}, {2, -1.41916}, {3, 0.0795703},
{4, -0.426948}, {5, -0.349634}, {6, 0.454106},
{7, 0.221677}, {8, 0.190618}, {9, -0.345478},
{10, 0.523639}, {11, 1.23956}, {12, 0.310264},
{13, -0.621994}, {14, -0.103605}, {15, 0.608526},
{16, 1.97183}}

have fun too !

wouter.
