I am having trouble with a creating a cumulative result from a simple integral
I have a set of 4 data (vectors) Y1,Y2,Y3,Y4
I take the min(Y1,Y2,Y3,Y4) at each value X
I create an interpolated vector of the min envelope - interpolated data seems to match the “raw” as I plotted it
And I want to calculate the cumulative integral of this min vector between f1 and f
For some reason mcad seem to be taking a very long time. Maybe he stuck in a loop
I suspect my cumulative integral is not set up correctly – Attached my test sheet
Thanks
Regards

The expression you disabled and highlighted in red with the note, "stuck in loop" actually was working, it just was going to take a long time to do 1980 integrations, each one a data point further along. I rebuilt to do every tenth point, 198 integrations still took several minutes. See attached.
Thanks for the correction. I guess I didn't expect to take that long to the integration. I did a 1st pass test with just a few points and it worked so I thought let's try with "real" data. I ran out of patience and assumed my "loop" was wrong. It took a couple of minutes on a laptop with your correction. I'll have a look at fitting a cspline then do the integration on it. Should be better/faster
creating a cspline with the desired data and then doing the (cumulative) integration on this cspline is significantly faster. take a few seconds (and it looks correct!)
