With the development of data-monitoring techniques in various fields of science, multivariate functional data are often observed. Consequently, an increasing number of methods have appeared to extend the general summary statistics of multivariate functional data. However, trajectory functional data, as an important sub-type, have not been studied very well. This article proposes two informative exploratory tools, the trajectory functional boxplot, and the modified simplicial band depth (MSBD… Expand
