# black_box_parts: Black Box Parts In rinform: An R Wrapper of the 'Inform' C Library for Information Analysis of Complex Systems

## Description

Black-box time series from a collection of 'l' sources where each series has the same number of time steps but possibly different bases into a number of different time series according to the partitioning scheme `parts`. The resulting time series and their bases are returned. The base of the resulting time series is given by the product of the bases of each time series in the partition.

## Usage

 `1` ```black_box_parts(series, parts) ```

## Arguments

 `series` Matrix of the time series to black-box. `parts` Vector giving the partitioning schema.

## Value

Vector or Matrix giving the black-boxed time series.

## Examples

 ``` 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15``` ```# Black-box 4 time series in the same partition (1st) xs <- matrix(0, nrow = 8, ncol = 4) xs[, 1] <- c(0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1) xs[, 2] <- c(1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0) xs[, 3] <- c(0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0) xs[, 4] <- c(1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 1, 1, 0) parts <- c(1, 1, 1, 1) black_box_parts(xs, parts) # box = c(5 8 9 6 15 3 5 8), b = c(16) # Black-box 4 time series with histories and futures: # box[, 1] = c(1 2 3 0 3 1 1 2), the time series for the 1st partition # box[, 1] = c(2 0 0 3 3 1 2 0), the time series for the 2st partition # b = c(4, 4) parts <- c(1, 2, 2, 1) black_box_parts(xs, parts) ```
