Description

GPoM is a platform dedicated to the Global Modelling technique. Its aim is to obtain deterministic models of Ordinary Differential Equations from observational time series. It applies to single and to multiple time series. With single time series, it can be used: to detect low-dimnesional determinism and low-dimensional (deterministic) chaos. It can also be used to characterize the observed behavior, using the obtained models as a proxy of the original dynamics, as far as the model validation could be checked. With multiple time series, it can be used: to detect couplings between observed variables, to infer causal networks, and to reformulate the original equations of the observed system (retro-modelling). The present package focuses on models in Ordinary Differential Equations of polynomial form. The package was designed to model weakly predictable dynamical behaviors (such as chaotic behaviors). Of course, it can also apply to more of fully predictable behavior, either linear or nonlinear. Several vignettes are associated to the package which can be used as a tutorial, and it also provides an overlook of the diversity of applications and at the performances of the tools. Users are kindly asked to quote the corresponding references when using the package (see hereafter).

Note

FOR USERS
This package was developped at Centre d'Etudes Spatiales de la Biosphere (Cesbio, UMR 5126, UPS-CNRS-CNES-IRD, http://www.cesbio.ups-tlse.fr). An important part of the developments were funded by the French program Les Enveloppes Fluides et l'Environnement (LEFE, MANU, projets GloMo, SpatioGloMo and MoMu). The French program Défi InFiNiTi (CNRS) and PNTS are also acknowledged (projects Crops'IChaos and Musc & SlowFast).

If you apply this package to single time series, please quote [6]. If you apply it to multivariate time series, please quote [10]. If you apply it to infer couplings among time series, please quote [8]. If you apply it to classification, please quote [11].

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND
The global modelling technique was initiated during the early 1990s [1-3]. It takes its background from the Theory of Nonlinear Dynamical Systems. Earlier investigations can also be found in the fields of Electrical Engineering and Statistics but these mainly focused on linear problems [4]. The approach became applicable to the analysis of real world environmental behaviours by the end of the 2000s [5-7]. Recent works have shown that the approach could be applied to numerous other dynamical behaviors [8-10]. Global modelling aims to obtain deterministic models directly from observed time series.
