General Information


Version 2.1 (R5.2), last mod. 23-May-2012 11:15:22

A precompiled plugin for the computation of (cross/ joint) recurrence plots and their quantification can be used for really long data series (several 10 000 data points). It may accelerate the computation as well.


Download the corresponding installation script plugininstall.m for your system and put it any folder, where Matlab can find it. Call plugininstall from the Matlab commandline. You may check if it works with the command rp_plugin.

After installation, this plugin is used by the commands crp, crp_big, crp2, jrp, crqa and jrqa, if Maximum norm, Euclidean norm, Minimum norm, Order patterns or Distance matrix is used as a neighbourhood criterion. If two data vectors are used (for cross or joint recurrence plots), the plugin will only be used if both data vectors have the same length.
