Integral curve/Differentiate |
SIGVIEW Help Home |

Accessible through menu option *Signal tools/Integral curve ( **
toolbar button) and Signal
tools/Differentiate ( ** toolbar button)*

This option enables you to see how the integral of the signal changes through time. The result will
be a new signal curve where n-th value in this curve will represent the integral of the origin signal
from its beginning until its n-th sample.

If you need only to calculate a simple numerical integral of the signal (area under the signal
curve), please use the corresponding option from *Instruments and markers *menu*.*

This option calculates the first derivation of the signal by subtracting consecutive signal values
from the origin values and forming new curve from subtraction results. It means that the n-th
value in new curve will be equal to the difference between n-th and (n-1)-th value from the origin
signal. This is only a rough approximation of the first derivation and should not be used on fast
changing signals. Before applying this function to such signal, you may try smoothing it first by
using appropriate __Smoothing __ option.
