function P=findpeaks(x,y,SlopeThreshold,AmpThreshold,smoothwidth,peakgroup)
% Function to locate the positive peaks in a noisy x-y data
% set.  Detects peaks by looking for downward zero-crossings
% in the first derivative that exceed SlopeThreshold.
% Returns list (P) containing peak number and
% position, height, and width of each peak. SlopeThreshold,
% AmpThreshold, and smoothwidth control sensitivity
% Higher values will neglect smaller features. Peakgroup
% is the number of points around the "top part" of the peak.

function [index,closestval]=val2ind(x,val)
% Returns the index and the value of the element of vector x that is closest to val
% If more than one element is equally close, returns vectors of indicies and values
% Tom O'Haver (toh@umd.edu) October 2006
% Examples: If x=[1 2 4 3 5 9 6 4 5 3 1], then val2ind(x,6)=7 and val2ind(x,5.1)=[5 9]
% [indices values]=val2ind(x,3.3) returns indices = [4 10] and values = [3 3]
