### Re: [Scilab-users] spatial correlation coefficient: Is the MATLAB corrcoef function doing the job?

Thanks for the many pointers. At this stage, although R is installed on my computer, I would hesitate learning R just to run the Nathan Mantel test. Can someone give me a helping hand in defining a spatial coordination index? Using - in the first place - the random xyz coordinates below that we had been using before for the nearest neighbour distribution which had worked out very well in accordance theoretical predictions. Apllication of covariance/correlance analysis turned out to be useless, because this investigates a search into linear dependencies of the x, y, z vectors and this is not of interest. Now, with the numbers generated below, the spatial coordination index looking for clusters and holes in 3d space should come out near zero. Somebody trying to run the numbers?

Le 08/02/2018 à 20:16, Heinz a écrit : Sorry, I am lost. I have 10,000 xyz data and want to know, if there is some regularity in them or if they are more or less random. So you need and are speaking about the 3D autocorrelation of data(x,y,z). Usually we compute it through a 3D convolution, that is easy to compute through the FFT, noting that for an autocorrelation we just flip one of both data array along x,y, and z before computing its FFT and going on with the algorithm. Finally we use the inverse FFT to come back to the direct x,y,z space. You may find good references on the web about the keyword 3D autocorrelation. In scilab, you will mainly need fft(A,sign,dims,incr[,option] ) since xcorr(), conv() conv2() convol2d() .. work only in 1D or 2D (with too often duplicates to do the same thing, without "simple" extension to do more...)

### Re: [Scilab-users] spatial correlation coefficient: Is the MATLAB corrcoef function doing the job?

Thanks. While not giving me ONE number, the analysis shows that my random generated xyz positions are uncorrelated as they should. Can one estimate the error bars for the xy xz and yz correlations? Now, I can use this approach for actual measurements in real objects.
