Detection of Nonlinearity and Chaos in TimeSeries Milan Palu
A method for identiication of nonlinearity and chaos in time series is presented and the possible presence of underlying chaotic dynamics can be assessed by a marginal redundancy approach.
Dynamical Analysis of Time Series by Statistical Tests
This review deals with the application of statistical test techniques for the extraction of structures in time series using a cumulant-based measure of statistical dependences in Fourier space and the dynamical aspects are studied by means of the information flow.
Nonlinear Time-Series Analysis
An overview of the achievements and some present research activities in the field of state space based methods for nonlinear time-series analysis and a new approach for modeling data from spatio-temporal systems is presented.
Generalized redundancies for time series
Extensions to various information-theoretic quantities (such as entropy, redundancy , and mutual information) are discussed in the context of their role in nonlinear time series analysis. We also
Evaluation of redundancies and redundancy-based statistics as functions of time lag and embedding dimension can further enhance insight into dynamics of a system under study.
Detection of a Nonlinear Oscillator Underlying Experimental Time Series: The Sunspot Cycle
After a brief review of a nonlinearity test based on information theoretic functionals (redundancies) and surrogate data technique, we discuss problems of this and similar tests for nonlinearity. In


Direct test for determinism in a time series.
A direct test for deterministic dynamics can be established by measurement of average directional vectors in a coarse-grained d-dimensional embedding of a time series, and examples are given to show the clear differences between deterministic and stochastic dynamics.
Nonlinear forecasting as a way of distinguishing chaos from measurement error in time series
An approach is presented for making short-term predictions about the trajectories of chaotic dynamical systems. The method is applied to data on measles, chickenpox, and marine phytoplankton
Information and entropy in strange attractors
A technique for analyzing time-series data from experiments is presented that provides estimates of four basic characteristics of a system: (1) the measure-theoretic entropy; (2) the accuracy of the
Characterization of Strange Attractors
A new measure of strange attractors is introduced which offers a practical algorithm to determine their character from the time series of a single observable. The relation of this new measure to
Deterministic nonperiodic flow
Finite systems of deterministic ordinary nonlinear differential equations may be designed to represent forced dissipative hydrodynamic flow. Solutions of these equations can be identified with
