Exams: (Information on the take home exam will come here
Choises:Below is a list of files which are sound files.
The idea behind these files is that they emulate explosions or regular pulsar like features.
The links below are mp3 files of the files you will analyze for your final. NB! The files to be analysed will be the wav files, which I will send to each one of you separately. They will each contain of the order of 1 million data points +- a factor of 2 or 3. The data will contain 2 columns, time and value. All the data sets have a readily identifiable signal or signals.
Analyse the full data or suitable sections of the data that you deem necessary and report your reasoned results, and what you have done. Time until Mar 15, but start thinking now. Think first of how to look at the data - excel may not be enough. I will distribute the wav files on the first come first serve basis.
The ones marked with a star have been reserved.
