1. I produced a unit set function in matlab however my professor requires me to use a ramp function to be multiplied to a signal to filter out unnecessary parts of an earthquake chirp, this is being used in my project to determine whether the chirp was caused by a nuclear bomb. 2. ideally i'd like something similar to a unit step function but it doesn't go from 0 to 1 immediately, preferably in a linear fashion. 3. I tried modifying my unit step function but i haven't had any luck using conditional statements yet... I get the same result. Just an aside question for MATLAB, how do i adjust the window. i can set the domain, however the range gets skewed if there's an outlier in my data that goes off to infinity my entire graph gets screwed up unless i delete the outliers by hand, which is a pain especially since there are many of them. Thanks!
