Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Have a problem: I'm generating 2 lists in Mathematica:

In: time = Table[(r - 1.0)/10.0 , {r, 10}]

Out: {0., 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 0.7, 0.8, 0.9}

In: noise = Table[RandomVariate[NormalDistribution[0, 1.4], 10]]

Out: {2.16764, -1.38203, -0.395928, -0.58616, 0.714317, -1.46027, \

-0.100758, -0.162811, -1.34202, -0.612508}

First list is to set up a time axis for simulated data acquistion and second is for the simulated data (white noise centered at 0 with a stddev of 1.4).

First of all, despite lengthy attempts, I can't seem to combine the lists into a table structured like {0., 2.16},

{.1, -1.38},

{.2, -.39}, etc.

If I could do this I'd then like to do a ListPlot of the data, with the X axis stopping at 1.0 or 0.9 seconds and the noise on the Y axis.

After multiple unsuccessful attempts at this, I then ListPlotted the data and the times separately (both on the Y axis). Unfortunately my X axis always goes from 0 to 10 since 10 data points are obtained for both lists, as is expected. I thought I would be able to easily scale the termination of the X axis from 10 down to 1, since the data is obtained in 1 second. Again, despite hours of work, I can't figure out how to do this. I have Mathematica Student Version 8. This all seems like such a simple problem to solve since I'm simulating sampling data (noise) at a sampling rate of 10/sec.

I'm requesting input on both of these issues. How do you make a plotable table from 2 lists, making one list the X axis and one the Y axis? Secondly, how do you rescale data points indexed on the X axis down into a one second time period to correspond to the sampling rate?

Thanks,
