If you know the function describing the long edge of the discs then it shouldn't be too hard to come up with an answer Mar 30 awarded Custodian Mar 30 comment Detect values in array that are statistically inconsistent Moreover, from the sentence "these values are sampled in less than 1 millisecond, and that what is being measured has no chance of changing so fast", I would think that using a low-pass filter doesn't need any additional assumptions Mar 30 comment Detect values in array that are statistically inconsistent For the general case, I agree with you, but I think, given the explanation of the OP, these options are both not necessarily statistically terrible. He mentions himself: "Glitches do happen and these need to be thrown out or the end result data may spike unnecessarily. It may be helpful to know that these values are sampled in less than 1 millisecond, and that what is being measured has no chance of changing so fast." So we are not looking at the tails of a normal distribution, we are really looking at spikes in the data which are easily recognized by thresholding Mar 29 revised Detect values in array that are statistically inconsistent edited body Mar 29 answered Detect values in array that are statistically inconsistent Mar 26 comment Lagrange Multipliers; two inequalities. You are mixing two things here. You are looking for the extremum of $f(x,y,z)$ and all of a sudden you have constraints on a function $g(x,y,z)$. I think you should write $$g(x,y,z) \leq f(x,y,z) \leq h(x,y,z)$$ Then the equation for a constraint extremum becomes: $$\nabla f = \lambda \nabla g + \mu \nabla h$$ with $g(x,y,z)=c_1$ and $h(x,y,z)=c_2$ Mar 25 revised Tough integration with change of variables and switch to polar coordinates edited latex in Mar 25 suggested approved edit on Tough integration with change of variables and switch to polar coordinates Mar 17 answered Is there a rule for prime numbers? Mar 4 comment Expanding the power series Nope, sorry. But since this is homework I think you will have to do with hints and pointers instead of full answers Mar 4 answered Expanding the power series Mar 3 awarded Scholar
