Hi all,

I am having a bit of a problem computing the cross correlation between two Electric-field patterns of antennas. I will try to state my problem clearly:

I have E-field values of an antenna for each value of phi and theta.
The E-field values are complex numbers and are given as dB V/m.
So in Matlab I have a Matrix of dimensions 181(0-180 degrees values of phi) x 360(for 360 values of theta).

Now I have another complex E-field matrix of the same dimensions giving the E-field radiation pattern of another antenna.

Now, I want to compare the two E-field patterns to see how much similar are they to one another. For this purpose I need to calculate there cross-correlation coefficient so that I get a single value between -1 and +1.

I am not sure on how to obtain the cross-correlation, because you cannot use the complex values directly into the correlation formulas, because then you get really wrong results.

I am also attaching the E-field matrices of the two antennas for your reference. These can be uploaded in Matlab using 'load' command.

Kindly help me in this regard, I will be very grateful.

I just answered this post on another forum.
