hurst.est: Estimate Hurst Exponent

Description Usage Arguments Value References See Also Examples

Description

Estimates Hurst exponent from a wavelet transform.

Usage

1
hurst.est(wspec, range, nvoice, plot=TRUE)

Arguments

wspec

wavelet spectrum (output of tfmean)

range

range of scales from which estimate the exponent.

nvoice

number of scales per octave of the wavelet transform.

plot

if set to TRUE, displays regression line on current plot.

Value

complex 1D array of size sigsize.

References

See discussions in the text of “Practical Time-Frequency Analysis”.

# White Noise Hurst Exponent: The plots on the top row of Figure 6.8
# were produced by the folling S-commands. These make use of the two
# functions Hurst.est (estimation of Hurst exponent from CWT) and
# wspec.pl (display wavelet spectrum).

# Compare the periodogram and the wavelet spectral estimate.
