Description

Searches for outlier splits in a 'timeSeries' object.

Usage

1
splits(x, sd = 3, complement = TRUE, ...)

Arguments

x

a 'timeSeries' object.

sd

a numeric value of standard deviations, e.g. 5 means that values larger or smaller than five times the standard deviation of the series will be detected.

complement

a logical flag, should the outlier series or its complements be returned?

...

## Create a Return Series with a Split - 
   data <- runif(12, -1, 1)
   data[6] <- 20
   x <- timeSeries(data, timeCalendar(), units="RUNIF")
   x
   
## Search for the Split:
   splits(x, sd=3, complement=TRUE)
   splits(x, sd=3, complement=FALSE)
