Clustering Discrete-Valued Time Series

26 Jan 2019  ·  Tyler Roick, Dimitris Karlis, Paul D. McNicholas ·

There is a need for the development of models that are able to account for discreteness in data, along with its time series properties and correlation. Our focus falls on INteger-valued AutoRegressive (INAR) type models. The INAR type models can be used in conjunction with existing model-based clustering techniques to cluster discrete-valued time series data. With the use of a finite mixture model, several existing techniques such as the selection of the number of clusters, estimation using expectation-maximization and model selection are applicable. The proposed model is then demonstrated on real data to illustrate its clustering applications.
