If you use the source codes, please make sure that you give a reference to the manuscript. (The correct way to cite this paper is shown above, no page numbers should be given.)

Source code

In order to understand the source code, you should first read the manuscript and the readme PDF file. To find the pdf-file of the manuscript, please follow the link at the top of this page.

Below you find the matlab scripts with the source codes. The source is commented. If you have problems in understanding how certain parts of the code work, please contact us. We will try to comment the corresponding part of the code and upload a new version.

Before publishing the source code, we have simplified it and reduced it to the essentials to allow for a better understanding. We are confident that, also with these simplifications and changes, the source code contains no bugs. However, if you encounter problems or bugs, please contact us.
