I have a very big data set that I have generated in Matlab. I am importing into Mathematica since doing some data manipulation is much easier.
There is one caveat, which is the following: I have some data entries that appear as the string
"0.677 + 9.121e-12i"
"1.247e-12 + 0.182i"
e-12 is actually the exponential of -12 (i.e. very small). Due to the formatting of the exponential, Mathematica does not recognise it as an exponential. Hence, I want to set any term that contains e to be 0 such that for the two entries above, I get:
I am then able to use
ToExpression to recast the whole data set to something that I can further manipulate.
