Mathematical tool in which tables are formed and normalization

  1. Aug 13, 2009 #1
    What does NORMALIZATION do?I am using a mathematical tool in which tables are formed and normalization of these tables are done using formula u know:
    g(x)=g(x)/Max[g(x)];
    i.e all values of the table are divided by the Maximum number from the table.
    thus table got maximum value =1.
    my question is that "what is its effect and does it provide better performance if used in algorithm."
    thanks.

    Re: Normalization

    What is this mysterious algorithm?

    Because the effects really depend on the application. If you need to compare g(x) with another function h(x), a normalization may be necessary (in the case of two sound signals). But you loose precision by doing this, so in some application, it's really not desired.
