The time period is 1 hour. I need the following notations to explain the computation. Strikes (x,s) = number of strikes in a rage of x km to station s Hits (x,s) =  number of strikes in a range of x km to station s at that station s was involved Signals (s) = number of signals of station s Strikes = total number of computed strikes of the region to that the station sends data min (x,y) = minimum of x and y Then we have: Effectivity_50 = Hits (s,50) / Strikes (s,50) * min (Strikes / Signals (s), Signals (s) / Strikes) Effectivity_500 = Hits (s,500) / Strikes (s,500) * min (Strikes / Signals (s) /, Signals (s) / Strikes) Effectivity_5000 = Hits  (s,5000) / Strikes(s,5000) * min (Strikes / Signals (s), Signals (s) / Strikes) If a denominator is zero, the effectivity is zero. This is the old effectivity value multiplied by the factor min (Strikes / Signals(s), Signals(s) / Strikes) to consider also the strikes/signals relation (and to punish the stations that send a lot of trash  ). The effectivity should only be considered as a relative measure of the performance, although a value of 1 can be obtained. Much fun, EgonHi Egon, I get the general idea of the new computation (quite hard for someone one who sucs at maths...)  But i am trying to figure out what the Y in "min (x,y) = minimum of x and y" stands for. I thought i'd just ask . Gerhard Stations: 711, 1351 « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
