***So now you have sampled v(), eh?  It's on a discrete set of time indices.
Or are you suggesting (not so clearly) that S is an infinite set of vectors
v?

***Why is S not a discrete set?  Actually it would help to define a couple
of things:

T is a positive integer.
N=T  ... which may seem trivial but helps the notation be more typical where
there are N+1 elements in S:

S={v(0),v(T/N),.....v(T-T/N),v(T)}

The v(j) terms are all on discrete times and, thus are vectors:

v(j) = (C1(j),C2(j),......,C10(j)).

So the v() here are vectors of length 10 and S is a matrix that is 10 X
(N+1)T   no???

No, it's a set of observations.

Well. lets just say that the range 0 to pi is mapped into the discrete range
0,0.1,0.2,........3.2

```You first need to define some distortion measure or performance measure
for the mapping.  Then, given the distortion measure one may design an
optimal mapping.

OK, this is a curve in a 10 dimensional space.

What's that a set of T+1 (quantized?) vectors (centroids?) along the
above curve?

What is the definition of the discrete set D?

> And how do I calculate the probability of any discrete vector in D?

Exactly the same way you calculate the that probability someone would
understand what you were asking...

for what?

```Hi

I have a 10-dimensional vector v(t)=(C1(t),C2(t),......,C10(t)) where Cj(t)
is between 0 and pi for any t.

I let t run from t=0 to t=T and get a set S of vectors
S={v(0),v(1),.....,v(T)}

How do I map this set S into a discrete set D ?

And how do I calculate the probability of any discrete vector in D?

Thanks...
