    Fourier equation and out of memory error tia sal22
    Sorry is this got posted twice my posts seem not to be showing up in
    some groups...usenet gremlins again

    Greetings All

    I can get this matalb script to work and plot when I set
    But when I set x=linspace(0,1,44100); I get a mtimes out of memory
    which I narrowed down to the large array size in the C and S variables

    Can someone recommend a way for this code to work without running
    into memory errors? I tried going the fft route but the signal would
    never match up.

    The plot looks great I just would like to:
    1) not have a memeory error issue if I set x=linspace(0,1,44100); or
    another large number in there.
    2) Would like to compare the the y array to the ynew array and get a
    percentage of error is this possible?

    See working code below:

    t1 = tic; %start timer to see how long it takes to process

    % DFT in a compact implementation using matrix math faster
    % Enter Data in y

    % Compute the matrices of trigonometric functions
    % Compute Fourier Coefficients

    % Reconstruct Signal - pmax is number of frequencies used in
    increasing order

    %pmax=5; %should be all the columns in C or S or less to decrease


    % % Plot Data
    % Plot reconstruction over data
    hold on
    hold off
    toc(t1) %stops timer and tells how long it took to run

    ok I took your advice about the wrapping and
    the spectral leakage. Along with
    generating the correct combination
    of periodic function and time window.

    Aloha and thanks again for you help
