Description of the program: poincare

This programs makes a Poincaré section for time continuous scalar data sets along one of the coordinates of the embedding vector.


poincare [Options]

Everything not being a valid option will be interpreted as a potential datafile name. Given no datafile at all, means read stdin. Also - means stdin

Possible options are:

Option Description Default
-l# number of points to use whole file
-x# number of lines to be ignored 0
-c# column to be read 1
-m# embedding dimension 2
-d# delay 1
-q# component for the crossing last
-C# direction of the crossing (0: from below, 1: from above) 0
-a# position of the crossing average of the data
-o# output file name without file name:'datafile'.poin
(or stdin.poin if data were read from stdin)
without -o option data is written to stdout
-V# verbosity level
  0: only panic messages
  1: add input/output messages
-h show these options none

Description of the Output:

The output file contains m components for each cut. The first m-1 components are the coordinates of the vector at the crossing, the last one is the time between the last two crossings (see Hegger, Kantz).
