\arguments{
\item{d}{an alignment result, object of class \code{dtw}}

\description{
The plot is based on the cumulative cost matrix. It displays the optimal alignment
as a "ridge" in the global cost landscape.
}
\details{
The alignment must have been
constructed with the \code{keep.internals=TRUE} parameter set.

If \code{normalize} is \code{TRUE}, the \emph{average} cost per step is
plotted instead of the cumulative one. Step averaging depends on the

## A study of the "Itakura" parallelogram
##
## A widely held misconception is that the "Itakura parallelogram" (as
## described in the original article) is a global constraint.  Instead,
## it arises from local slope restrictions. Anyway, an "itakuraWindow",
## is provided in this package. A comparison between the two follows.

## The local constraint: three sides of the parallelogram are seen
idx<-seq(0,6.28,len=100);
query<-sin(idx)+runif(100)/10;
reference<-cos(idx)

ita <- dtw(query,reference,keep=TRUE,step=typeIIIc)
dtwPlotDensity(ita, main="Slope-limited asymmetric step (Itakura)")

## Symmetric step with global parallelogram-shaped constraint. Note how
## long (>2 steps) horizontal stretches are allowed within the window.

dtw(query,reference,keep=TRUE,window=itakuraWindow)->ita;
dtwPlotDensity(ita,
main="Symmetric step with Itakura parallelogram window")
