# Cross Spectral Density in Python using Matplotlib

In this tutorial, we are going to plot cross spectral density in python using matplotlib.

CSD (cross-spectral density) is often used in signal processing and therefore, we are presenting an example for the same. ## Python code for cross spectral density using matplotlib

```import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

fig, (ax1, ax2) = plt.subplots(2, 1)

dt = 0.01
t = np.arange(0, 30, dt)

nse1 = np.random.randn(len(t))
nse2 = np.random.randn(len(t))
r = np.exp(-t / 0.05)

cnse1 = np.convolve(nse1, r, mode='same') * dt
cnse2 = np.convolve(nse2, r, mode='same') * dt

s1 = 0.01 * np.sin(2 * np.pi * 10 * t) + cnse1
s2 = 0.01 * np.sin(2 * np.pi * 10 * t) + cnse2

ax1.plot(t, s1, t, s2)
ax1.set_xlim(0, 5)
ax1.set_xlabel('time')
ax1.set_ylabel('s1 and s2')
ax1.set_title('Cross Spectral Density')
ax1.grid(True)

cxy, f = ax2.csd(s1, s2, 256, 1. / dt)
ax2.set_ylabel('CSD (db)')
plt.show()
```

Output:

```Output is as figure
```
