Available software for the creation and application of RPs and their quantitative analysis facilitates the spread of their application (no claim to completeness):

  1. CRP Toolbox
    last updateversion
    by Norbert Marwan
    Allows for the creation of RPs, CRPs as well as JRPs, quantification analysis of RPs, CRPs and JRPs includes the new measures of complexity as LAM and TT, time scale alignment tool based on CRPs and further useful tools and methods of nonlinear time series analysis and data preparation are provided, platform independent (for Matlab), both usage of graphical user interface as well as commandline call is possible, a plugin is available enabeling the computation of RPs and RQA of long data series.

  2. CEPS: Analysis of Complexity and Entropy in Physiological Signals
    last update
    by Deepak Panday
    MATLAB GUI with wrapper to external software packages that include functions for calculating recurrence plots and recurrence quantification

  3. Recurrence Plot & Quantification
