### correlation using probability of recurrence

I have a question regarding how to calculate synchronization in two coupled rossler systems?
say x1 and x2 represent two variables of coupled system.The time series contains 5000 data points each.
is the formalue cpr=phasesynchro(x1,x2,m,t,e) correct for such calculations. however if i change the coupling parameters then also the value of cpr comes close to one[/.Do
we need to specify a window if so how?Also how to plot the p(tau) vs tau individually?

P.S-I am novice in this field pardon me if the question is irrelevant.

### Re: correlation using probability of recurrence

Hi,

your solution looks correct. Perhaps the used time window is too small. You can add another argument that specifies the time window (i.e. the maximal time range that will be considered by this method).
If you need the p(tau) separately, you can calculate them by the crqad function:
Code: Select all
`y = crqad(timeseries,m,tau,epsilon,max_timerange);plot(-max_timerange:max_timerange,y.RRp)`

I have not tested this code but it should do something that corresponds to your needs. The difference might be that this function calculates the RQA measures from the standard RP, where the line of identity is the main diagonal. But the phasesynchro function calculates the measures from the variation of the RP, where the line of identity equals the x-axis.
