# pylab_examples example code: psd_demo_complex.pyΒΆ

```"""This is a ported version of a MATLAB example from the signal
processing toolbox that showed some difference at one time between
Matplotlib's and MATLAB's scaling of the PSD.

This differs from psd_demo3.py in that this uses a complex signal,
so we can see that complex PSD's work properly
