#### Function declaration

shifted_series_cell = series_shift_domain(series_cell)

#### Description

Rearranges a set of data series whose domain has two dimensions and whose
codomain is ` n `-dimensional. This utility may help to visualize complex data
using the standard 2-D plot facilities. See the example for an intuitive
introduction. The input set of data must be passed as a cell array of

`matrices each of them representing an`

**n_param**`-dimensional data series. All data series must have the same number of`

**n**`vectors of data (i.e each matrix must be composed by`

**n_elem**`rows, each row being a row-vector of`

**n_elem**`columns). Each series of data is supposed to be ordered with respect to a parameter`

**n**`which is the first dimension of the data domain. Matrices are supposed to be ordered with respect to a parameter`

**p1**`which is the second dimension of the data domain. That is, vectors in the same row of different matrices should represent`

**p2**`-dimensional data points measured for different values of the parameter`

**n**`while the parameter`

**p2**`remains constant. Vectors of the same matrix should represent measures for different values of the parameter`

**p1**`while the parameter`

**p1**`remains constant. In case of multi-array, all dimensions beyond the second one are splitted and considered as data matrices corresponding to different values of`

**p2**`.`

**p2**The output set of data is a cell array of matrices in which the role of the
domain dimensions (i.e. of the parameters ` p1 ` and

`) is inverted.`

#### Input arguments

series_cellcell array of matrices all having the same size.::cellnumeric-1::

#### Example of usage

version: 0.2.8

#### Support

The Mastrave modelling library is committed to provide reusable and general - but also robust and scalable - modules for research modellers dealing with computational science. You can help the Mastrave project by providing feedbacks on unexpected behaviours of this module. Despite all efforts, all of us - either developers or users - (should) know that errors are unavoidable. However, the free software paradigm successfully highlights that scientific knowledge freedom also implies an impressive opportunity for collectively evolve the tools and ideas upon which our daily work is based. Reporting a problem that you found using Mastrave may help the developer team to find a possible bug. Please, be aware that Mastrave is entirely based on voluntary efforts: in order for your help to be as effective as possible, please read carefully the section on reporting problems. Thank you for your collaboration.
