Implementations for several robust procedures that allow for (online) extraction of the signal of univariate or multivariate time series by applying robust regression techniques to a moving time window are provided. Included are univariate filtering procedures based on repeated-median regression as well as hybrid and trimmed filters derived from it; see Schettlinger et al. (2006) <doi:10.1515/BMT.2006.010>. The adaptive online repeated median by Schettlinger et al. (2010) <doi:10.1002/acs.1105> and the slope comparing adaptive repeated median by Borowski and Fried (2013) <doi:10.1007/s11222-013-9391-7> choose the width of the moving time window adaptively. Multivariate versions are also provided; see Borowski et al. (2009) <doi:10.1080/03610910802514972> for a multivariate online adaptive repeated median and Borowski (2012) <doi:10.17877/DE290R-14393> for a multivariate slope comparing adaptive repeated median. Furthermore, a repeated-median based filter with automatic outlier replacement and shift detection is provided; see Fried (2004) <doi:10.1080/10485250410001656444>.
Calculates periodograms based on (robustly) fitting periodic functions to light curves (irregularly observed time series, possibly with measurement accuracies, occurring in astroparticle physics). Three main functions are included: RobPer() calculates the periodogram. Outlying periodogram bars (indicating a period) can be detected with betaCvMfit(). Artificial light curves can be generated using the function tsgen(). For more details see the corresponding article: Thieler, Fried and Rathjens (2016), Journal of Statistical Software 69(9), 1-36, <doi:10.18637/jss.v069.i09>.
Likelihood-based methods for model fitting and assessment, prediction and intervention analysis of count time series following generalized linear models are provided. Models with the identity and with the logarithmic link function are allowed. The conditional distribution can be Poisson or Negative Binomial.
