Compute Warping Path Area

Compute the area between the warping function and the diagonal (no-warping) path, in unit steps.

Keywords

Usage
warpArea(d)
Arguments
d
an object of class dtw
Details

Above- and below- diagonal unit areas all count plus one (they do not cancel with each other). The "diagonal" goes from one corner to the other of the possibly rectangular cost matrix, therefore having a slope of M/N, not 1, as in slantedBandWindow.
The computation is approximate: points having multiple correspondences are averaged, and points without a match are interpolated. Therefore, the area can be fractionary.

Value

The area, not normalized by path length or else.

Note

There could be alternative definitions to the area, including considering the envelope of the path.

  plot(ds);lines(seq(1,8,len=4),col="red");

  warpArea(ds)

  ## Result: 6
  ##  index 2 is 2 while diag is 3.3  (+1.3)
  ##        3    3               5.7  (+2.7)
  ##        4   4:8 (avg to 6)    8   (+2  )
