### Time series mining

These algorithms perform various tasks to analyze time series data

- an algorithm for
**converting a time series to a sequence**of symbols using the**SAX representation of time series.**Note that if one converts a set of time series with SAX, he will obtain a**sequence database**, which allows to then apply traditional algorihtms for sequential rule mining and sequential pattern mining on time series (SAX, 2007). - algorithms for calculating the
**prior moving average****time series**(to remove noise) - algorithms for calculating the
**cumulative moving average**f a**time series**(to remove noise) - algorithms for calculating the
**central moving average**of a**time series**(to remove noise) - an algorithm for calculating the
**median smoothing**of a**time series**(to remove noise) - an algorithm for calculating the
**exponential smoothing**of a**time series**(to remove noise) - an algorithm for calculating the
**min max normalization**of a**time series** - an algorithm for calculating the
**autocorrelation function**of a**time series** - an algorithm for calculating the
**standardization**of a**time series** - an algorithm for calculating the
**first and second order differencing**of a**time series** - an algorithm for calculating the
**piecewise aggregate approximation**of a**time series**(to reduce the number of data points of a time series) - an algorithm for calculating the
**linear regression of a time series**(using the least squares method) - an algorithm for
**splitting a time series**into**segments of a given length** - an algorithm for
**splitting a time series**into a**given number of segments** - algorithms to
**cluster time series (**group time-series according to their similarities). This can be done by applying the clustering algorithms offered in SPMF (**K-Means, Bisecting K-Means, DBScan, OPTICS, Hierarchical clustering**) on**time series**. - a tool called
**Time Series Viewer**for**visualizing time series**

### Classification

- the
**ID3**algorithm for building decision trees (Quinlan, 1986)

### Text mining

- an algorithm for
**classifying text documents**using a Naive Bayes classifier approach (S. Raghu, 2015) - an algorithm for
**clustering****texts**using the**tf*idf**measure (S. Raghu, 2015)
