# vmd

## Syntax

## Description

`[___] = vmd(`

performs the variational mode decomposition with additional options specified by one or
more name-value arguments.`x`

,`Name=Value`

)

`vmd(___)`

plots the original signal, IMFs, and the
residual signal as subplots in the same figure.

## Algorithms

The `vmd`

function calculates the IMFs in the frequency domain,
reconstructing *X*(*f*) =
DFT{*x*(*t*)} in terms of *U _{k}*(

*f*) = DFT{

*u*(

_{k}*t*)}. To remove edge effects, the algorithm extends the signal by mirroring half its length on either side.

The Lagrange multiplier introduced in Optimization (Signal Processing Toolbox) has the Fourier transform Ʌ(*f*). The length of the Lagrange multiplier vector is the length of the extended
signal.

Unless otherwise specified in `InitialIMFs`

, the IMFs are initialized
at zero. Initialize `CentralFrequencies`

using one of the methods specified
in `InitializeMethod`

. `vmd`

iteratively updates the
modes until one of these conditions is met:

$$\sum _{k}{\Vert {u}_{k}^{n+1}(t)-{u}_{k}^{n}(t)\Vert}_{2}^{2}/{\Vert {u}_{k}^{n}(t)\Vert}_{2}^{2}}<{\epsilon}_{\text{r}$$ and $$\sum _{k}{\Vert {u}_{k}^{n+1}(t)-{u}_{k}^{n}(t)\Vert}_{2}^{2}}<{\epsilon}_{\text{a}$$ are jointly satisfied, where ε

_{r}and ε_{a}are specified using`RelativeTolerance`

and`AbsoluteTolerance`

, respectively.The algorithm exceeds the maximum number of iterations specified in

`MaxIterations`

.

For the (*n* + 1) -th iteration, the algorithm performs these steps:

Iterate over the

*K*modes of the signal (specified using`NumIMF`

) to compute:The frequency-domain waveforms for each mode using

$${U}_{k}^{n+1}(f)=\frac{X(f)-{\displaystyle \sum _{i<k}{U}_{k}^{n+1}(f)}-{\displaystyle \sum _{i>k}{U}_{k}^{n}}(f)+\frac{{\Lambda}^{n}}{2}(f)}{1+2\alpha {\{2\pi (f-{f}_{k}^{n})\}}^{2}},$$

where $${U}_{k}^{n+1}(f)$$ is the Fourier transform of the

*k*th mode calculated in the (*n*+ 1)-th iteration.The

*k*th central frequency $${f}_{k}^{n+1}$$ using$${f}_{k}^{n+1}=\frac{{\displaystyle {\int}_{0}^{\infty}{\left|{U}_{k}^{n+1}(f)\right|}^{2}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}f\text{\hspace{0.17em}}}df}{{\displaystyle {\int}_{0}^{\infty}{\left|{U}_{k}^{n+1}(f)\right|}^{2}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}df}\approx \frac{{\displaystyle \sum f{\left|{U}_{k}^{n+1}(f)\right|}^{2}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}}}{{\displaystyle \sum {\left|{U}_{k}^{n+1}(f)\right|}^{2}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}}}.$$

Update the Lagrange multiplier using $${\Lambda}^{n+1}(f)={\Lambda}^{n}(f)+\tau (X(f)-{\displaystyle \sum _{k}{U}_{k}^{n+1}(f)}),$$ where τ is the update rate of the Lagrange multiplier, specified using

`LMUpdateRate`

.
