# HistDAWass-package: Histogram-Valued Data Analysis In HistDAWass: Histogram-Valued Data Analysis

## Description

We consider histogram-valued data, i.e., data described by univariate histograms. The methods and the basic statistics for histogram-valued data are mainly based on the L2 Wasserstein metric between distributions, i.e., a Euclidean metric between quantile functions. The package contains unsupervised classification techniques, least square regression and tools for histrogram-valued data and for histogram time series.
