We introduce contrastive multivariate singular spectrum analysis, a novel unsupervised method for dimensionality reduction and signal decomposition of time series data. By utilizing an appropriate background dataset, the method transforms a target time series dataset in a way that evinces the sub-signals that are enhanced in the target dataset, as opposed to only those that account for the greatest variance. This shifts the goal from finding signals that explain the most variance to signals… 
Supporting Analysis of Dimensionality Reduction Results with Contrastive Learning
This work presents a visual analytics method that effectively highlights the essential features of a cluster in a DR result and introduces an enhanced usage of contrastive principal component analysis (cPCA), called ccPCA (contrasting clusters in PCA).
Contrastive Variational Autoencoder Enhances Salient Features
This paper introduces the contrastive variational autoencoder (cVAE), which combines the benefits of contrastive learning with the power of deep generative models and effectively uncovers latent structure that is salient in a particular analysis.
Multivariate singular spectrum analysis of seismicity in the space–time-depth-magnitude domain: insight from eastern Nepal and the southern Tibetan Himalaya
The aim of the current study is to apply multivariate singular spectrum analysis (M-SSA) techniques and investigate both shallow and intermediate-depth earthquake characteristics in eastern Nepal and
Interpretable Contrastive Learning for Networks
This work introduces a novel approach called contrastive network representation learning (cNRL), which embeds network nodes into a low-dimensional space that reveals the uniqueness of one network compared to another, and designs a method that offers interpretability in the learned results.
A Visual Analytics Framework for Reviewing Multivariate Time-Series Data with Dimensionality Reduction
MulTiDR is presented, a new DR framework that enables processing of time-dependent multivariate data as a whole to provide a comprehensive overview of the data and enhances analysts' ability to interpret DR results.
Semantic Disentangling Generalized Zero-Shot Learning
A novel feature disentangling approach based on an encoder-decoder architecture to factorize visual features of images into these two latent feature spaces to extract corresponding representations, and a relation module is incorporated into this architecture to learn semantic-visual relationship.
A Visual Analytics Framework for Contrastive Network Analysis
The results show that participants were able to both effectively identify unique characteristics from complex networks and interpret the results obtained from cNRL, and the usefulness of ContraNA is demonstrated with two case studies using real-world datasets.


Singular-spectrum analysis: a toolkit for short, noisy chaotic signals
Abstract Singular-spectrum analysis (SSA) is developed further, based on experience with applications to geophysical time series. It is shown that SSA provides a crude but robust approximation of
Discriminant analysis of multivariate time series: Application to diagnosis based on ECG signals
This work uses multiple-scale wavelet variances and wavelet correlations to distinguish between the patterns of multivariate ECG signals based on the variability of the individual components of each ECG signal and on the relationships between every pair of these components.
Contrastive Learning Using Spectral Methods
This paper formalizes this notion of contrastive learning for mixture models, and develops spectral algorithms for inferring mixture components specific to a foreground data set when contrasted with a background data set.

A model for groups of time series in which transfer functions are modeled as stochastic variables that can account for both between-group and within-group differences in spectra that are identified from individual replicates is proposed.
Rich Component Analysis
This paper develops the general framework of Rich Component Analysis (RCA) to model settings where the observations from different views are driven by different sets of latent components, and each component can be a complex, high-dimensional distribution.
Dimensionality Reduction for Spectral Clustering
This work introduces an augmented form of spectral clustering in which an explicit projection operator is incorporated in the relaxed optimization functional and optimize this functional over both the projection and the spectral embedding.
Multivariate singular spectrum analysis for forecasting revisions to real-time data
Real-time data on national accounts statistics typically undergo an extensive revision process, leading to multiple vintages on the same generic variable. The time between the publication of the
Exploring patterns enriched in a dataset with contrastive principal component analysis
This paper proposes a method, contrastive principal component analysis (cPCA), which identifies low-dimensional structures that are enriched in a dataset relative to comparison data and enables visualization of dataset-specific patterns.
The different forms of the multivariate singular spectrum analysis (SSA) and their associated forecasting algorithms are considered from both theoretical and practical points of view. The new
• Singular spectrum analysis (SSA) is a relatively new and powerful non-parametric time series analysis technique that has demonstrated its capability in forecasting different time series in various
