Autocorrelation of a vector of symbolic variables
% SYM_AUTOCORR Autocorrelation of a symbolic vector
% [V, VCORR] = SYM_AUTOCORR(SEQLEN), where SEQLEN>=1 is the length of the
% sequence whose autocorrelation is to be calculated. V is a symbolic
% vector of length SEQLEN that the function constructs and VCORR is the
% symbolic autocorrelation vector.
% The autocorrelation is calculated by first constructing the outer
% product matrix and then summing over each diagonal.
function [v, vcorr] = sym_autocorr(seqLen)
v = sym('var', [seqLen,1]);
N = numel(v);
vcorr = ;
outerProd = v*v';
for i = -N+1:N-1
vcorr = [vcorr; sum(diag(outerProd, i))];
