MatLab CRP Toolbox containing Matlab® routines for computing recurrence plots, cross/ joint recurrence plots and related problems. The CRP Toolbox for Matlab® allows for the creation of recurrence plots (RPs) as well as cross and joint recurrence plots (CRPs/ JRPs). It provides the most up-to-date quantification analysis of RPs, CRPs and JRPs (RQA), which includes the new measures of complexity as LAM and TT. Moreover, a time scale alignment tool based on CRPs is available. Further useful tools and methods of nonlinear time series analysis and data preparation are provided: - ACE - estimation of optimal transformations and maximal correlation; - AR parameter estimation via Yule-Walker method; - Fast multi-dimensional histogram estimation; - Phase space tools (parameters, size, visualisation; - Transformation of the data distribution to a desired distribution; - Windowed plot of statistical parameters; The toolbox can be used by a comfortable graphical user interface as well as on commandline (e.g. for batch computations). Note developer: Starting with Release R2014b, Matlab contains significant changes that is causing some problems for running the CRP Toolbox in new Matlab versions. We have tried to fix several serious issues and provide an updated CRP Toolbox (R29.0) that might be mainly compatible to the Matlab releases starting with R2014b. However, due to a new but less efficient handling of objects within Matlab R2014b, the speed of some functions of the CRP Toolbox will be lowered by a factor up to 10(!). We have not yet found a good solution to speed up the code (the problem is not the implementation of the CRP Toolbox but in some Matlab internal functions related to the object handling). At the moment it is strongly recommend to use Matlab versions up to release R2014a and to avoid R2014b (and later).
MatLab Fieldtrip A software toolbox for MEG and EEG analysis. FieldTrip is a MATLAB software toolbox for magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroencephalography (EEG) analysis.
