%EMD  computes Empirical Mode Decomposition
%
%
%   Syntax
%
%
% IMF = EMD(X)
% IMF = EMD(X,...,'Option_name',Option_value,...)
% IMF = EMD(X,OPTS)
% [IMF,ORT,NB_ITERATIONS] = EMD(...)
%
%
%   Description
%
%
% IMF = EMD(X) where X is a real vector computes the Empirical Mode
% Decomposition [1] of X, resulting in a matrix IMF containing 1 IMF per row, the
% last one being the residue. The default stopping criterion is the one proposed
% in [2]:
%
%   at each point, mean_amplitude < THRESHOLD2*envelope_amplitude
%   &
%   mean of boolean array {(mean_amplitude)/(envelope_amplitude) > THRESHOLD} < TOLERANCE
%   &
%   |#zeros-#extrema|<=1
%
% where mean_amplitude = abs(envelope_max+envelope_min)/2
% and envelope_amplitude = abs(envelope_max-envelope_min)/2
%
% IMF = EMD(X) where X is a complex vector computes Bivariate Empirical Mode
% Decomposition [3] of X, resulting in a matrix IMF containing 1 IMF per row, the
% last one being the residue. The default stopping criterion is similar to the
% one proposed in [2]:
%
%   at each point, mean_amplitude < THRESHOLD2*envelope_amplitude
%   &
%   mean of boolean array {(mean_amplitude)/(envelope_amplitude) > THRESHOLD} < TOLERANCE
%
% where mean_amplitude and envelope_amplitude have definitions similar to the
% real case
%
% IMF = EMD(X,...,'Option_name',Option_value,...) sets options Option_name to
% the specified Option_value (see Options)
%
% IMF = EMD(X,OPTS) is equivalent to the above syntax provided OPTS is a struct
% object with field names corresponding to option names and field values being the
% associated values
%
% [IMF,ORT,NB_ITERATIONS] = EMD(...) returns an index of orthogonality
%                       ________
%         _  |IMF(i,:).*IMF(j,:)|
%   ORT = \ _____________________
%         /

%
% and the number of iterations to extract each mode in NB_ITERATIONS
%
%
%   Options
%
%
%  stopping criterion options:
%
% STOP: vector of stopping parameters [THRESHOLD,THRESHOLD2,TOLERANCE]
% if the input vector's length is less than 3, only the first parameters are
% set, the remaining ones taking default values.
% default: [0.05,0.5,0.05]
%
% FIX (int): disable the default stopping criterion and do exactly <FIX>
% number of sifting iterations for each mode
%
% FIX_H (int): disable the default stopping criterion and do <FIX_H> sifting
% iterations with |#zeros-#extrema|<=1 to stop [4]
%
%  bivariate/complex EMD options:
%
% COMPLEX_VERSION: selects the algorithm used for complex EMD ([3])
% COMPLEX_VERSION = 1: "algorithm 1"
% COMPLEX_VERSION = 2: "algorithm 2" (default)
%
% NDIRS: number of directions in which envelopes are computed (default 4)
% rem: the actual number of directions (according to [3]) is 2*NDIRS
%
%  other options:
%
% T: sampling times (line vector) (default: 1:length(x))
%
% MAXITERATIONS: maximum number of sifting iterations for the computation of each
% mode (default: 2000)
%
% MAXMODES: maximum number of imfs extracted (default: Inf)
%
% DISPLAY: if equals to 1 shows sifting steps with pause
% if equals to 2 shows sifting steps without pause (movie style)
% rem: display is disabled when the input is complex
%
% INTERP: interpolation scheme: 'linear', 'cubic', 'pchip' or 'spline' (default)
% see interp1 documentation for details
%
% MASK: masking signal used to improve the decomposition according to [5]
%
%
