Abstract. The advent of missions comprised of phased arrays of spacecraft, with separation distances ranging down to at least mesoscales, provides the scienti®c community with an opportunity to accurately analyse the spatial and temporal dependencies of structures in space plasmas. Exploitation of the multi-point data sets, giving vastly more information than in previous missions, thereby allows unique study of their small-scale physics. It remains an outstanding problem, however, to understand in what way comparative information across spacecraft is best built into any analysis of the combined data. Di€erent investigations appear to demand di€erent methods of data co-ordination. Of the various multispacecraft data analysis techniques developed to a€ect this exploitation, the discontinuity analyser has bee
