Real-time clustering of noisy time series

Lead Research Organisation: University of Manchester
Department Name: Mathematics


The PhD project is concerned with the development of new approaches for clustering of noisy time series, with an application to real-time measurements being taken in large industrial assets. Firstly, the student will investigate low-dimensional representations of time series which preserve relevant features and allow for automatic classification using techniques from machine learning, such as support vector machines. Secondly, the real-time aspect of data collection will necessitate the need for efficient updating techniques in the linear algebra routines underlying the training and assignment phases.

Description - Introduced a method to convert between different representations of rational interpolant.
- Developed the theory behind block rational Krylov spaces.
- Established a connection between vector autoregressive time series models and block polynomial Arnoldi decompositions.
- Introduced a new symbolic representation of time series.
Exploitation Route Block rational Krylov spaces have many applications including solving eigenvalue problems, matrix equations and model order reduction to name just a few. The new symbolic representation, which we call ABBA, has a variety of applications in the time series data mining community.
