Topic: Peak detection algorithm

Hi all,

I'm using mMass for detection peaks in signals for my research. One could say the peak detection consists of smoothing, baseline correction and peak picking. Could you maybe tell me how the peak picking algorithm works?  Or of what type it is (for example taking local maxima, Signal to Noise ratio, slopes of peaks). This way I'll be able to mention what type it is in my research paper.


Thanks a lot!

Hi, brief description of the peak picking algorithm is available in the mMass User's Guide PDF.
