I want to know if this is how the time epoch box works in the spaceship scenario . and I have 2 questions :
1 . how does the time epoching work in conjunction with the average box ? after bandpassing the input stream we have a time epoching box which I think works like this (assuming we epoch duration is 0.3 sec and epoch interval is 0.1 sec and assuming that xi is a vector):
time(msec) : 1 2 3 4 5 6
input : x1 x2 x3 x4 x5 x6
output : x1 x2 x3 x2 x3 x4 ...
now assume we give this output to the average box.
it's documentation says :
"This plugin computes the average of each incoming sample buffer and outputs the resulting signal."
"The output signal's sample count per channel per buffer is one, since a buffer contains the averages (per channel) of the values of an input buffer. "
so by epoching the signal we have increased the buffer size ? and now the average is computed over 3 vectors rather than 1 ?
also the output of the average would be the average of vectors x1 , x2 ,x3 from 0.1 to 0.2 then average of x2,x3,x4 from 0.2 to 0.3 ? is this correct ?
2. in the spaceship scenario is it necessary to epoch the signal before giving it to the DSP box with the formula "x*x" ? as I understand "x*x" just squares the elements of the vectors in our stream . so epoching should not have an effect on it .
p.s sorry if my questions are naive !
