I have two xy curves, defined numerically on a given (potentially different) range of x coordinates. What I need to do is to compare these two curves with the following strategy:
- express each curve as a sum of unknown gaussian functions, to be determined.
- compare the two sets of gaussians.
- obtain a similarity score ranging from 0% (absolutely no similarity) to 100 % (they are the same).
I am not looking for exceedingly fancy algorithms for these tasks, but any hint and keywords to search for will certainly be welcome.
