Thank you Alexandros for sharing your matlab code!
can you please tell us what is your reference for calculating number of bins like this?

% Define the number of bins

It works well and fast but i need to plot lag vs. values of mutual information

This code is very helpful to me to get started on my academic project. Could you please let me know if you dont provide the lag, the lag chosen in the program
0:min(n/2 -1,20) is a generic rule or is that applied just for some systems?
I would greatly appreciate it if you elaborate a little bit on how to choose the time lag.
