This inspector contains the function generator and the calculator which allows buffer calculations.
As the name implies the Function Generator allows to generate function plots from arbitrary expressions.
X, Y: Select the target. Enter the expression in the field below.
Min, Max: The range in which the expression should be calculated.
Steps, Increment: The number of steps which should be calculated. These two fields depends on each other; if you enter one the other one will be calculated automatically. The number of steps is limited to 1000000.
Generate Buffer: Runs the function generator and generate a new buffer.
The Buffer Calculation function allows to perform an arbitrary calculation on all selected buffers.
X Value, Y Value, X Error, Y Error: Select the target. Enter the expression in the field below.
Perform Calculation: Execute the calculation.
Buffer Calculations allow the use of some special variables:
|ex||x error value|
|ey||x error value|
|nb||number of buffers|
|cb||number of the current buffers|
|np||number of datapoints|
|dp||the current datapoint|
Buffer 1, Buffer 2: The lower part of the calculation area allows to perform basic calculations between two buffers. This work also for buffers with different X axis and different numbers of data points. Only the overlapping area will be processed and missing points will be interpolated.
Swap XY: Clicking this button swaps the X and Y values in all selected buffers. Error values will also be swapped if available.
