Registration for Incomplete Non-Gaussian Functional Data

  title={Registration for Incomplete Non-Gaussian Functional Data},
  author={Alexander Bauer and Fabian Scheipl and Helmut Kuchenhoff and Alice‐Agnes Gabriel},
Accounting for phase variability is a critical challenge in functional data analysis. To separate it from amplitude variation, functional data are registered, i.e., their observed domains are deformed elastically so that the resulting functions are aligned with template functions. At present, most available registration approaches are limited to datasets of complete and densely measured curves with Gaussian noise. However, many real-world functional data sets are not Gaussian and contain… 



Bayesian Framework for Simultaneous Registration and Estimation of Noisy, Sparse, and Fragmented Functional Data

Abstract In many applications, smooth processes generate data that are recorded under a variety of observational regimes, including dense sampling and sparse or fragmented observations that are often

Registration for exponential family functional data

A novel method for separating amplitude and phase variability in exponential family functional data is introduced, andSimulations designed to mimic the application indicate that the proposed methods outperform competing approaches in terms of estimation accuracy and computational efficiency.

Multimodal Bayesian registration of noisy functions using Hamiltonian Monte Carlo

A general framework for multivariate functional principal component analysis of amplitude and phase variation

Functional data typically contain amplitude and phase variation. In many data situations, phase variation is treated as a nuisance effect and is removed during preprocessing, although it may contain

Functional Data Analysis of Amplitude and Phase Variation

This paper motivates the importance of dealing with the phase variability and summarizes several current ideas for separating phase and amplitude components, and uses simple examples to illustrate various approaches and to provide useful contrast between them.

Components and completion of partially observed functional data

Functional data are traditionally assumed to be observed on the same domain. Motivated by a data set of heart rate temporal profiles, we develop methodology for the analysis of incomplete functional

Nonparametric registration to low-dimensional function spaces

Registration of Functional Data Using Fisher-Rao Metric

A novel geometric framework for separating the phase and the amplitude variability in functional data of the type frequently studied in growth curve analysis using the Fisher-Rao Riemannian metric and a convenient square-root velocity function representation.

Bayesian Hierarchical Curve Registration

A Bayesian hierarchical model for curve registration that provides a formal account of amplitude and phase variability while borrowing strength from the data across curves in the estimation of the model parameters is proposed.

Functional registration and local variations: Identifiability, rank, and tuning

The theory and methodology for nonparametric registration of functional data that have been subjected to random deformation of their time scale are developed, showing that contrary to popular belief, the problem can be severely unidentifiable even under structural assumptions or roughness penalties.
