Recurrence Times of the Second Type

Postby albernathy0 » Mon Jul 2, 2012 14:41


I wonder is the T2 value (outputted at Y(:,10) in the Matlab CRP toolbox as a single value) the averagedtime distance of recurrent structures?

Thank you for your response,

No. For T2, the vertical distance between the pairs "white" pixel/ "black" pixel in one column (say column j) are measured, i.e., it is the time how long the trajectory needs to come back to the vicinity of the state j. Then it is averaged over all T2.
