Counting Horizontal Visibility Graphs

  title={Counting Horizontal Visibility Graphs},
  author={Martina Juhnke-Kubitzke and Daniel Kohne and Jonas Schmidt},
Horizontal visibility graphs (HVGs, for short) are a common tool used in the analysis and classification of time series with applications in many scientific fields. In this article, extending previous work by Lacasa and Luque, we prove that HVGs associated to data sequences without equal entries are completely determined by their ordered degree sequence. Moreover, we show that HVGs for data sequences without and with equal entries are counted by the Catalan numbers and the large Schröder…

Canonical horizontal visibility graphs are uniquely determined by their degree sequence
Abstract Horizontal visibility graphs (HVGs) are graphs constructed in correspondence with number sequences that have been introduced and explored recently in the context of graph-theoretical time

Online visibility graphs: Encoding visibility in a binary search tree
The proposed encoder/decoder approach offers an on-line computation solution at no additional computational cost, and makes it possible to use visibility graphs for large-scale time series analysis and for applications where on- line data assimilation is required.
Fast transformation from time series to visibility graphs.
A fast transform algorithm is proposed for obtaining a visibility graph based on the strategy of "divide & conquer," which is more efficient than the previous basic algorithm whose time complexity is O(n(2).
Horizontal visibility graphs: exact results for random time series.
This work presents the horizontal visibility algorithm, a geometrically simpler and analytically solvable version of the former algorithm, focusing on the mapping of random series (series of independent identically distributed random variables), and presents exact results on the topological properties of graphs associated with random series, namely, the degree distribution, the clustering coefficient, and the mean path length.
From time series to complex networks: The visibility graph
A simple and fast computational method, the visibility algorithm, that converts a time series into a graph, which inherits several properties of the series in its structure, enhancing the fact that power law degree distributions are related to fractality.
Catalan Numbers
Sequences and arrays whose terms enumerate combinatorial structures have many applications in computer science. Knowledge (or estimation) of such integer-valued functions is, for example, needed in
Terrain Visibility Graphs: Persistence is Not Enough
There exists a persistent graph G that is not the visibility graph for any terrain T, which implies that pseudo-terrains are not stretchable and persistence is not enough by itself to characterize the visibility graphs of terrains.
