Hi Marco,

This is a highly domain-specialized question.  Consequently, I'm not sure
if any of us are qualified to help on this.  Your question has very little
to do with Python, and more to do with computational algorithms.

You may want to try the folks at SciPy:


and see if anyone there can point you toward relevant resources.  I'm
sorry that we can't be of more help on this question.

Good luck to you!
