Goal-seek kind of operation
Mon, 09/14/2020 - 08:53 pm
I wanted to know how the goal-seek kind of operation can be performed and automated in Igor. I have a set of data containing few thousands points. There are two variables which I want to find. The way it goes is:
Assume a value of 'x' and find 'y' using the mathematical formula 1
Now using 'y' find the value of 'x' using the mathematical formula 2
If both 'x' match, then that would the correct value, and if not use the new 'x' to do the operation again. The iteration goes on until both 'x' match.
Mathematical formulas use a number of variables that are part of those data points. So, for each set of data points there is a unique value of 'x' and 'y'. Imagine, I want to do this exercise with those few thousands time series data points.
Let me know if it doesn't make sense, and I'll try to explain it more.
