Want to create some data

  1. Jul 4, 2012 #1
    see the follwing print out - you can imagine what the trend might be - the dataset i want to make??

    how can i create that data. i mean that sort of curve twice - the second time of a lower volume with noise added. make sense?

    sorry for some reason i can't embed.

    thanks!! precision is unimportant atm. if i knew how to joing peaks i could do it easy...

    Looks a lot like a 1/x relationship.

    i was trying to run ifft on excel but i then want to manipulate the output [basically - everything above the median amp = 1, everything below = -1. turning into steps]... but this destroys the fft - completely. is there no way around that - i was thinking of using solver and ifft in excel together but that's impossible. so can i do so without programming, and anyway, is this just a completel dead end?
