here’s an easy way to do low-pass signal filtering in matlab: function [s_data_v] = fftsmooth(data_v,freq_n) % use fft low pass filter to smoothen out a signal fft_data_v = fft(data_v); s_fft_data_v = zeros(1,length(data_v)); s_fft_data_v(1:freq_n) = fft_data_v(1:freq_n); s_fft_data_v(end-freq_n:end) = fft_data_v(end-freq_n:end); s_data_v = real(ifft(s_fft_data_v));

i prefer to make all of my powerpoint and keynote slides with dark backgrounds and white text. i find these slides to be much more readable in a dark room; the problem with this setup though is that most figure-making software automatically draw dark lines. matlab falls into this category. to make matlab automatically create […]

a friend once asked: Having previously benefited from your stinkpot.org tricks, I’m wondering if you know a way to fix the output size (e.g., dimensions in pixels or inches) of Matlab figures. here’s one way of going about rotating the paper orientation figure and then setting its dimensions (in inches): set(gcf,’PaperOrientation’,’landscape’) set(gcf,’PaperPosition’,[0,0,11,8.5])
