This might be a very silly question.

I am using Matlab to calculate various statistical terms like correlation coefficient, autocorrelation etc. from a set of PIV data for a round jet (I have U and V instantaneous at different x and r, with data over 1000 images taken at 50Hz). Now the fluctuations vary with time, x (axial distance from origin), and r (radial distance).

If I am finding out, let's say the correlation coefficient between the fluctuating terms u and v (axial and radial), I am confused as to how to do it (I know matlab has a built in function for corr coef.)

I want to plot corr coef vs r/D . So, I need to provide Matlab with vectors of u and v. But these vectors should vary with x or t?

In S.B.Pope's book, there is a part about one point one time characteristics. But, if that is so, then corr coef in this situation is not going to be possible?

The flow is 3D, therefore you measured somehow U and V that are depending on the azimuthal direction, too. They were averaged?
I suggest following the Pope book and implement the computation of correlation (or auto-correlation) by yourself.

We are taking it to be planar ofc. Neglecting the dependency on azimuthal dir., my question is when we are giving the vectors for u and v for the corr coeff., is it wrt time or space? I am not asking for the code, that is not a problem if I can understand the basic idea. I think my concept of correlation coefficient has faults.

I think you should focus first on what you want to compute...you can calculate both spatial and temporal correlations (or autocorrelation) as well as the coefficient.
Matlab function does not distinguish If the vector has spatial or temporal entries so that you can use the function by organizing properly the vectors.
