hello, im just trying to translate a 1d TV denoising function for matlab, which can be found here http://cnx.org/content/m31292/latest/, to C++. Here's my attempt:

```
inline
vector<double> tvDenoising(vector<double> data, double lambda, int Nit)
{
vector<double> J (Nit);
int N = data.size();
vector<double> z (N-1);
fill (z.begin(),z.end(), double(0));
vector<double> diffZ (N-1);
//vector<double> frstEl (1);
//vector<double> lastEl (1);
vector<double> x (N);
vector<double> diffX (N);
double alpha=4;
for (int k=0; k < Nit; k++)
{
//adjacent_difference (z.begin(), z.end() , diffZ.begin()); //computing adjacent difference of elements of z
//diffZ.erase(diffZ.begin()); //erase first element
vector<double> diffZ = diff(z);
for (unsigned int i=0; i<diffZ.size(); i++)
{
diffZ[i] = -diffZ[i];
}
double frstEl = -z[0]; // 1st element of z
double lastEl = z.back(); //last element of z
diffZ.insert(diffZ.begin(), frstEl); //creation of complete Dtz
diffZ.insert(diffZ.end(), lastEl);
for (unsigned int j=0; j < data.size(); j++)
{
x[j] = data[j] - ((lambda/2)*diffZ[j]); //creation of x
}
//Filling the difference vector
//adjacent_difference (x.begin(), x.end() , diffX.begin());
//diffX.erase(diffX.begin());
vector<double> diffX = diff(x);
vector<double> absdiffX (diffX.size());
for (unsigned int i = 0; i < diffX.size(); i++)
{ absdiffX[i] = fabs(diffX[i]); }
vector<double> X_Y_diff_sq ;
for (unsigned int i=0; i<x.size(); i++)
{
double abs_diff = fabs(x[i] - data[i]);
X_Y_diff_sq.push_back(abs_diff*abs_diff);
}
double sum1 = sumv(X_Y_diff_sq);
double sum2 = sumv(absdiffX);
J[k] = sum1 + lambda*sum2;
for (unsigned int m=0; m < z.size(); m++)
{
z[m] = z[m] + (2/(lambda*alpha*diffX[m]));
}
for (unsigned int n=0; n < z.size(); n++) //clipping the values
{
double a = min(z[n], double(1));
z[n] = max(a,double(-1));
}
/**/
//diffZ.erase (diffZ.begin(),diffZ.end());
//diffX.erase (diffX.begin(),diffX.end());
}
return x;
}
```

where diff() and sumv() are these two functions:

```
inline
vector<double> diff(vector<double> data)
{
vector<double> vect_diff;
for (unsigned int i=1; i<data.size(); i++)
{
vect_diff.push_back(data[i]-data[i-1]);
}
return vect_diff;
}
inline
double sumv(vector<double> data)
{
double vect_sum = 0;
for (unsigned int i=0; i<data.size(); i++)
{
vect_sum += data[i];
}
return vect_sum;
}
```

Still don't get what i'm mistaking..My TV denoising doesnt work..

Can you please help me?

Thank you
