We describe an R package developed by the research group Turbulence, Wind energy and Stochastics (TWiSt) at the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, which extracts the (stochastic) evolution equation underlying a set of data or measurements. The method can be directly applied to data sets with one or two stochastic variables. Examples for the one-dimensional and two-dimensional cases are provided. This framework is valid under a small set of conditions which are explicitly presented and…

Position-Dependent Diffusion from Biased Simulations and Markov State Model Analysis.

A novel method is proposed that can calculate multidimensional position-dependent diffusion coefficients equally from either biased or unbiased simulations using the same formalism and builds on Markov state model analysis and the Kramers-Moyal expansion.

PyDaddy: A Python package for discovering stochastic dynamical equations from timeseries data

This work presents PyDaddy, a toolbox to construct and analyze interpretable SDE models based on time-series data, and combines traditional approaches for data-driven SDE reconstruction with an equation learning approach, to derive symbolic equations governing the stochastic dynamics.

Arbitrary-Order Finite-Time Corrections for the Kramers–Moyal Operator

With the aim of improving the reconstruction of stochastic evolution equations from empirical time-series data, a full representation of the generator of the Kramers–Moyal operator is derived via a power-series expansion of the exponential operator, allowing for separate finite-time corrections of the power- series expansion of arbitrary order.

Modellierung von Windgeschwindigkeiten mit Hilfe der Langevin Gleichung Bachelorarbeit

Wind data is a stochastic process that cannot be modelled by a deterministic function alone. However, due to ever more demanding need for renewable and clean energy, wind power needs to be

Bayesian inference of fractional brownian motion of multivariate stochastic differential equations

There have been much interest in analysis of stochastic differential equation with long memory, represented by fractional diffusion process, this property have been proved itself in financial

Stochastic modelling of non-stationary financial assets.

The time series of the two parameters are shown to be stationary and Markov-like and consequently can be modelled with Langevin equations, which are derived directly from their series of values.

Data-Driven Model of the Power-Grid Frequency Dynamics

An easy-to-use, data-driven, stochastic model for the power-grid frequency is introduced and it is demonstrated how it reproduces key characteristics of the observed statistics of the Continental European and British power grids.

kramersmoyal: Kramers-Moyal coefficients for stochastic processes

This package employs a non-parametric Nadaraya--Watson estimator, i.e., kernel-density estimators, to retrieve the drift, diffusion, and higher-order moments of stochastic timeseries of any dimension.

Experimental indications for Markov properties of small scale turbulence

There is evidence that the statistics of the longitudinal velocity increment v(r) can be described as a Markov process, and knowledge of the Fokker{Planck equation allows the joint probability density of N increments on N dierent scales p(v1;r1;:::;vN;rN) to be determined.

Towards a stochastic multi-point description of turbulence

In previous work it was found that the multi-scale statistics of homogeneous isotropic turbulence can be described by a stochastic "cascade" process of the velocity increment from scale to scale,

Validation of drift and diffusion coefficients from experimental data

Many fluctuation phenomena, in physics and other fields, can be modeled by Fokker–Planck or stochastic differential equations whose coefficients, associated with drift and diffusion components, may

This paper develops a framework for the estimation of the functions and their respective (Bayesian posterior) confidence regions based on likelihood estimators and solves important problems concerning the applicability and the accuracy of estimated parameters.

Markov properties in presence of measurement noise.

It is demonstrated that the presence of measurement noise, likewise, spoils Markov properties of an underlying Markov process, which is promising for the further development of techniques for the reconstruction of stochastic processes from measured data.
