Nonlinear Time Series Analysis with R

Ray Huffaker, Marco Bittelli, and Rodolfo Rosa


In the process of data analysis, the investigator is often facing highly-volatile and random-appearing observed data. A vast body of literature shows that the assumption of underlying stochastic processes was not necessarily representing the nature of the processes under investigation and, when other tools were used, deterministic features emerged. Non Linear Time Series Analysis (NLTS) allows researchers to test whether observed volatility conceals systematic non linear behavior, and to rigorously characterize governing dynamics. Behavioral patterns detected by non linear time series analysis ... More

Keywords: Non linear time series analysis, chaos theory, phase space reconstruction, behavioral patterns, time series, observed data
