## Detailed Description

A class of static functions to aid with vanVleck corrections of lag data.

Public interface

Date Reviewed:
yyyy/mm/dd

### Prerequisite

• Familiarity with the issues involved in turning digitally sampled lag data from a correlator into spectral data.

### Etymology

This provides the functions necessary to determine the van Vleck correction for a general n-level by m-level correlator.

### Synopsis

This provides the functions necessary to determine the van Vleck correction for a general n-level by m-level correlator.

### Motivation

The GBT spectrometer provides the measured auto-correlation and cross-correlation lags. The gbt MeasurementSet filler (gbtmsfiller) needs to convert those lags to the spectral domain. These functions allow the filler to calculate the van Vleck correction appropriate for each measured set of lags. They are of general and hence are not specific to the GBT spectrometer.

The functions here are static because of the nature of the underlying numerical quadrature fortran code used to integrate the drbyrho function.

### To Do

• The inverse error functions may be more generally useful. It exists here only as a private member function to be used internally.

## Member Function Documentation

 static Bool casacore::VanVleck::dcoff ( Double & dcoffset, Double & threshold, Int n, Double zerolag, Double bias )
static

Compute an approximation to the mean signal level (DC offset) and quantizer threshold setting (both in terms of the r.m.s.

signal input level) given the observed positive bias (the asymptotic limit of the measured autocorrelation at large lags) and the zero-lag autocorrelation. dcoffset is the mean signal level, threshold is the quantizer setting, n is the number of levels, zerolag is the zero-lag value and bias is the asymptotic bias. Currently, this is only available for the n==3 level case, all other cases set the returned dcoffset to 0 and use thresh() to set the returned value of threshold. A return value of F indicates that the zerolag and bias values are inconsistent and the dcoffset can not be determined. In that case, the returned dcoffset is 0 and thresh() is used to set the threshold level.

 static Bool casacore::VanVleck::dcoff3 ( Double & dcoffset, Double & threshold, Double zerolag, Double bias )
staticprivate

implementation of dcoff for the 3-level case

 static Double casacore::VanVleck::drbydrho ( Double * rho )
staticprivate

The fortran numerical integration function will call this.

For a given rho and quantization functions, this computes, via Price's theorem, the value dr/drho of the derivative, with respect to rho, of the expected value of the correlator output.

 static uInt casacore::VanVleck::getsize ( )
static

get the current size.

 static void casacore::VanVleck::getTable ( Vector< Double > & rs, Vector< Double > & rhos )
static

Get the data used in setting up the interpolation.

 static void casacore::VanVleck::initInterpolator ( )
staticprivate

initialize the interpolator

 static Double casacore::VanVleck::invErf ( Double x )
staticprivate

inverse err fn - used by invErfc

 static Double casacore::VanVleck::invErfc ( Double x )
staticprivate

inverse complementary err fn - used by threshN3

Referenced by threshN3().

 static Double casacore::VanVleck::predict ( Int n, Double threshhold )
inlinestatic

Predict a given zero-lag given n and a threshold.

This is included here to be used as a check against the output of thresh.

References predictN3(), and predictNgt3().

 static Double casacore::VanVleck::predictN3 ( Double threshhold )
inlinestaticprivate

Predict a zero-lag value given the indicated first threshold level for n=3.

 static Double casacore::VanVleck::predictNgt3 ( Int n, Double threshhold )
staticprivate

Predict a zero-lag value given the indicated first threshold level for n>3.

Referenced by predict().

 static Double casacore::VanVleck::r ( const Double rho )
static

Given a rho return the corresponding corrected r Returns 0.0 if no quantization has been set yet.

 static Double casacore::VanVleck::rinc ( Double & rhoi, Double & rhof )
staticprivate

For a given rhoi, rhof, this produces a high-accuracy numerical approximation to the integral of drbydrho over the range rhoi to rhof.

It calls the standard QUADPACK adaptive Gaussian quadrature procedure, dqags, to do the numerical integration.

 static Bool casacore::VanVleck::setEquiSpaced ( Double xlev, Double ylev, Double xmean, Double ymean, Int n )
static

Set the x and y quantization levels for the case of equi-spaced levels with a possible non-zero offset.

The total number of levels is given by n, which must be 3 or 9. If n is not 3 or 9, False will be returned and no quantization will have been set. For the 3- and 9- level cases a bivarate normal integral calculation will be used. That is much faster than the more general numerical integration used by setQuantization.

 static void casacore::VanVleck::setQuantization ( const Matrix< Double > & qx, const Matrix< Double > & qy )
static

Set the x and y quantization functions.

Each matrix should have dimensions (2,n) where n is the number of levels. The first row (0,...) is the (n-1) threshold levels and the second row is the n quantizations based on those thresholds. The thresholds may include a DC offset. The (0,(n-1)) element is never used and need not be set.

 static void casacore::VanVleck::size ( uInt npts )
static

Set the interpolation table size.

Should be an odd number. The default size is 65.

 static Double casacore::VanVleck::thresh ( Int n, Double zerolag )
inlinestatic

Given a measured zero-lag autocorrelation and number of levels (n>=3) return the first positive quantizer input threshold level.

This can be used to set the up the matrix arguments used in setQuantization.
