We present a method combining ideas from the theory of operator-valued kernels with delay-coordinate embedding techniques in dynamical systems capable of identifying spatiotemporal patterns, without prior knowledge of the state space or the dynamical laws of the system generating the data. The approach is particularly powerful for systems in which characteristic patterns cannot be readily decomposed into temporal and spatial coordinates. Using simulated and observed sea-surface temperature data…

Vector-Valued Spectral Analysis of Space-Time Data
This work combines ideas from the theory of operator-valued kernels with delay-embedding techniques in dynamical systems to develop a method for objective identification of spatiotemporal coherent patterns without prior knowledge of the state space and/or the dynamical laws of the system generating the data.
Spatiotemporal analysis of complex signals: Theory and applications
We present a space-time description of regular and complex phenomena which consists of a decomposition of a spatiotemporal signal into orthogonal temporal modes that we call chronos and orthogonal
Spatiotemporal Pattern Extraction by Spectral Analysis of Vector-Valued Observables
Application of vector-valued spectral analysis to the Kuramoto–Sivashinsky model demonstrates significant performance gains in efficient and meaningful decomposition over eigendecomposition techniques utilizing scalar-valued kernels.
Spatiotemporal Feature Extraction with Data-Driven Koopman Operators
This work presents a framework for feature extraction and mode decomposition of spatiotemporal data generated by ergodic dynamical systems by constructing feature maps using eigenfunctions of the Koopman group of unitary operators governing the dynamical evolution of observables and probability measures.
Nonlinear Laplacian spectral analysis for time series with intermittency and low-frequency variability
A technique for analyzing high-dimensional, complex time series that exploits the geometrical relationships between the observed data points to recover features characteristic of strongly nonlinear dynamics (such as intermittency and rare events), which are not accessible to classical singular spectrum analysis.

We present a technique for describing the global behaviour of complex nonlinear flows by decomposing the flow into modes determined from spectral analysis of the Koopman operator, an
Delay-Coordinate Maps and the Spectra of Koopman Operators
The Koopman operator induced by a dynamical system is inherently linear and provides an alternate method of studying many properties of the system, including attractor reconstruction and forecasting.
