Appendix J: N-Slit Interferometric Calculations—Numerical Approach

J.1  Introduction

The first numerical calculations representing the interferometric equation

|x|s|2=j=1NΨ(rj)2+2j=1NΨ(rj)(m=j+1NΨ(rm) cos (ΩmΩj))

(J.1)

and its associated geometry was performed using Fortran IV (Duarte and Paine 1989; Duarte 1991, 1993). Then the program was transitioned to Visual Fortran (Duarte, 2002). MATLAB® versions of the calculations have been developed more recently Duarte et al. (2013). Here, we provide a MATLAB version of a simple program that deals with the experimental situation related to the basic probability amplitude

x|s=j=1Nx|jj|s

(J.2)

In Duarte et al. (2013), the numerical calculations were performed using a MATLAB version ...
