Homework Help: Question about deconvolution of signals (digital signal processing)

  1. Jun 26, 2011 #1
    I have a set of discrete data that I have performed multiple Gaussian smoothing filters on to act as a low-pass filter. What I have come up with is something like this:


    I'm using findpeaks() in matlab, and a peak that I want is being taken over by the adjacent Gaussian. The one I'm trying to get is around x=35. Does anyone know of a method where I can get the x value of that point? Thanks!

    Nevermind, I figured it out. I ended up using the local mins of the derivative.

    FWIW, I was thinking that there is an inflection point around 35.
