Table 1: Sound examples for the particle trajectory sonification model

- Single Particle in a single data point potential function phi(r): S1 (mp3)
- Set of 50 particles in the potential function for a 2D dataset with one cluster: S2 (mp3) --- and with three clusters:
S3 (mp3)
- Sequence of particle trajectory sonifications, systematically
decreasing the bandwidth sigma, starting with large values, where V
contains only one trough at the mean of all data, ending with sigma so
small that all data point potential functions are well separated.
Listen to the examples for a dataset with a gaussian distribution of data
points: S4 (mp3) and with a mixture of 3 gaussian
distributions with different mean and covariance S5 (mp3)
