The package implements Wild Binary Segmentation, a technique for consistent estimation of the number and locations of multiple change-points in data. It also provides a fast implementation of the standard Binary Segmentation algorithm.

The main routines of the package are `wbs`

, `sbs`

and `changepoints`

.

#an example in which standard Binary Segmentation fails to detect change points
x <- rnorm(300)+ c(rep(0,130),rep(-1,20),rep(1,20),rep(0,130))
s <- sbs(x)
w <- wbs(x)
s.cpt <- changepoints(s)
s.cpt
w.cpt <- changepoints(w)
w.cpt
# in this example, both algorithms work well
x <- rnorm(300) + c(rep(1,50),rep(0,250))
s <- sbs(x)
w <- wbs(x)
s.cpt <- changepoints(s)

w.cpt <- changepoints(w)
