so you have a polynomial and want to know its minima?
Usually you differentiate the polynomial to calculate the min/max points:
y = sum( a_i * x^i) will differentiated to y' = sum (a_i * i * x^i-1).
As you know the polynomial coefficients it should be quite easy to calculate!
You can use the Peak Detector.vi and set it to detect valleys. It will give you the location of the valleys found. You may have to do a bit of interpretation but it is well explained in the help file.
i've already tried to use Peak Detector but my problem is that i don't know how to connect it to my code. Can you help me?
Have you tried it as simple as this?
(It might work better once you use a real waveform and provide usable settings at the other inputs of the PeakDetector!)
I want to find the minimum from an XYGraph, this solution doesn't work for it.
Don't do it on the XY Graph, use it on the Waveform Graph. Then you can retrieve the corresponding points on the XY Graph. Have you set the peaks/valleys input to valleys? set a threshold (and tried different values)?
I can't, look at my code!
Why can't you? With all the suggestions you already got?
You got your plot of the polynom. Create a waveform with the data of this plot. Feed the waveform into PeakDetector. Set the parameters for PeakDetector and you will get the desired results!
