3.3.2.30 Integrate

This command integrates dataset using the trapezoidal rule.

This command is no longer recommended. Please use the integ1 X-Function instead.

Syntax:

integrate [-r basedataset] dataset [range]


The integration results are placed into the following integ object properties:

integ.area -- Area of the integration.
integ.y0 -- Maximum height (measured from the baseline if present, otherwise measured from zero).
integ.x0 -- X value of y0.
integ.dx -- Full width at half maximum (FWHM) of the peak.
integ.x1 -- Beginning X.
integ.x2 -- Ending X.


A dataset named _integ_area is created to hold the integrated area data. The leading underscore indicates that this is a temporary dataset that is deleted when printing or saving (or overwritten if another integration is performed). You can save the contents of this dataset to a permanent dataset of your own naming. However, note that since Origin 7, this dataset is automatically saved to a hidden worksheet following the naming convention Integraln_columnName. To find out more, see the Origin Help file.

Options:

no option; Integrate dataset from zero

Syntax: integ dataset [range]

Integrate dataset from zero.

-a; Perform the integration without creating the temporary dataset

Syntax: integ -a dataset [range]

Perform the integration without creating the (temporary) _integ_area dataset.

-q; Integrate dataset from 0 but do not display the temporary shading of the integration area

Syntax: integ -q dataset [range]

Integrate dataset from 0 but do not display the temporary shading of the integration area.

-r; Integrate from the given baseline dataset

Syntax: integ -r baseDataset dataset [range]

Integrate from the given baseline dataset.The Y values are calculated by interpolating the baseline. If the baseline is a spline, the spline interpolation values are used. Otherwise, the interpolation is linear.

Examples:

The following script integrates the Data2_D dataset from row index 4 to row index 8.

integrate Data2_D -b 4 -e 8;

The next script integrates the Data2_D dataset using Data2_B as a baseline to subtract.

integ -r Data2_B Data2_D;
