A scalar Langevin-type process $X(t)$ that is driven by Ornstein-Uhlenbeck noise $\eta(t)$ is non-Markovian. However, the joint dynamics of $X$ and $\eta$ is described by a Markov process in two dimensions. But even though there exists a variety of techniques for the analysis of Markov processes, it is still a challenge to estimate the process parameters solely based on a given time series of $X$. Such a partially observed 2D-process could, e.g., be analyzed in a Bayesian framework using Markov...

This work presents an analysis of ocean wave data including rogue waves. A stochastic approach based on the theory of Markov processes is applied. With this analysis we achieve a characterization of the scale dependent complexity of ocean waves by means of a Fokker-Planck equation, providing stochastic information of multi-scale processes. In particular we show evidence of Markov properties for increment processes, which means that a three point closure for the complexity of the wave structures...

We propose a novel method for analyzing precursory seismic data before an earthquake that treats them as a Markov process and distinguishes the background noise from real fluctuations due to an earthquake. A short time (on the order of several hours) before an earthquake the Markov time scale $t_M$ increases sharply, hence providing an alarm for an impending earthquake. To distinguish a false alarm from a reliable one, we compute a second quantity, $T_1$, based on the concept of extended...

We introduce a general procedure for directly ascertaining how many independent stochastic sources exist in a complex system modeled through a set of coupled Langevin equations of arbitrary dimension. The procedure is based on the computation of the eigenvalues and the corresponding eigenvectors of local diffusion matrices. We demonstrate our algorithm by applying it to two examples of systems showing Hopf-bifurcation. We argue that computing the eigenvectors associated to the eigenvalues of...

Atmospheric wind speeds and their fluctuations at different locations (onshore and offshore) are examined. One of the most striking features is the marked intermittency of probability density functions (PDF) of velocity differences -- no matter what location is considered. The shape of these PDFs is found to be robust over a wide range of scales which seems to contradict the mathematical concept of stability where a Gaussian distribution should be the limiting one. Motivated by the...

The proposed universality of small scale turbulence is investigated for a set of measurements in a cryogenic free jet with a variation of the Reynolds number (Re) from 8500 to 10^6. The traditional analysis of the statistics of velocity increments by means of structure functions or probability density functions is replaced by a new method which is based on the theory of stochastic Markovian processes. It gives access to a more complete characterization by means of joint probabilities of finding...

We propose a novel inverse method that utilizes a set of data to construct a simple equation that governs the stochastic process for which the data have been measured, hence enabling us to reconstruct the stochastic process. As an example, we analyze the stochasticity in the beat-to-beat fluctuations in the heart rates of healthy subjects as well as those with congestive heart failure. The inverse method provides a novel technique for distinguishing the two classes of subjects in terms of a...

We analyze the relationship of longitudinal and transverse increment statistics measured in isotropic small-scale turbulence. This is done by means of the theory of Markov processes leading to a phenomenological Fokker-Planck equation for the two increments from which a generalized Karman equation is derived. We discuss in detail the analysis and show that the estimated equation can describe the statistics of the turbulent cascade. A remarkably result is that the main differences between...

We address the problem of differences between longitudinal and transverse velocity increments in isotropic small scale turbulence.

From these results, a simple relationship between longitudinal and transverse structure functions is found which explains the difference in...

The level crossing and inverse statistics analysis of DAX and oil price time series are given. We determine the average frequency of positive-slope crossings, $\nu_{\alpha}^+$, where $T_{\alpha} =1/\nu_{\alpha}^+ $ is the average waiting time for observing the level $\alpha$ again. We estimate the probability $P(K, \alpha)$, which provides us the probability of observing $K$ times of the level $\alpha$ with positive slope, in time scale $T_{\alpha}$. For analyzed time series we found that...

We study the statistics of the horizontal component of atmospheric boundary layer wind speed. Motivated by its non-stationarity, we investigate which parameters remain constant or can be regarded as being piece-wise constant and explain how to estimate them. We will verify the picture of natural atmospheric boundary layer turbulence to be composed of successively occurring close to ideal turbulence with different parameters. The first focus is put on the fluctuation of wind speed around its...

In particular we focus on the expression for the scaling exponents $\zeta_{n}$. We show that Yakhot's result contains three well known scaling models as special cases, namely K41, K62 and the theory by V. L'vov and I. Procaccia [V. L'vov & I. Procaccia, Phys. Rev. E {\bf 62}(6) (2000)]. The model furthermore yields a theoretical justification for the method of...

The method analyzes the returns time series of the data as a Markov process, and computes the Markov time scale, i.e., the time scale over which the data are a Markov process. We also construct an effective stochastic continuum equation for the return series. We show that the drift and diffusion...

Analysis of the fluctuations of the detrended increments of the series reveals a pronounced change of the shapes of the probability density functions (PDF) of the series' increments. Before and close to an earthquake the shape of the PDF and the long-range correlation in the increments...

A new method is proposed which allows a reconstruction of time series based on higher order multiscale statistics given by a hierarchical process. This method is able to model the time series not only on a specific scale but for a range of scales. It is possible to generate complete new time series, or to model the next steps for a given sequence of data. The method itself is based on the joint probability density which can be extracted directly from given data, thus no estimation of parameters...

Statistical properties of interbeat intervals cascade are evaluated by considering the joint probability distribution $P(\Delta x_2,\tau_2;\Delta x_1,\tau_1)$ for two interbeat increments $\Delta x_1$ and $\Delta x_2$ of different time scales $\tau_1$ and $\tau_2$. We present evidence that the conditional probability distribution $P(\Delta x_2,\tau_2|\Delta x_1,\tau_1)$ may obey a Chapman-Kolmogorov equation. The corresponding Kramers-Moyal (KM) coefficients are evaluated. It is shown that...

We investigate the orientational behaviour of a homeotropically aligned nematic liquid crystal subjected to an oscillatory plane Poiseuille flow produced by an alternating pressure gradient. For small pressure amplitudes the director oscillates within the flow plane around the initial homeotropic position, whereas for higher amplitudes a spatially homogeneous transition to out-of-plane director motion was observed for the first time. The orientational transition was found to be supercritical...

Evidence is given that the price changes x(tau) upon different delay times tau can be described as a Markov process evolving in tau. Thus, the tau-dependence of the probability density function (pdf) p(x) on the delay time tau can be described by a Fokker-Planck equation, a gerneralized diffusion equation for p(x,tau). This equation is completely determined by two coefficients...

A general method is proposed which allows one to estimate drift and diffusion coefficients of a stochastic process governed by a Langevin equation. It extends a previously devised approach [R. Friedrich et al., Physics Letters A 271, 217 (2000)], which requires sufficiently high sampling rates. The analysis is based on an iterative procedure minimizing the Kullback-Leibler distance between measured and estimated two time joint probability distributions of the process.

In particular the limited-memory Broyden-Fletcher-Goldfarb-Shanno algorithm for constraint problems (L-BFGS-B) is used to minimize the distance between the numerical solutions of the Fokker-Planck equation and the empirical probability density functions and thus to estimate properly the drift and diffusion term of the Fokker-Planck equation.

This paper deals with the analysis of stochastic systems which can be described by a Langevin equation. By the method presented in this paper drift and diffusion terms of the corresponding Fokker-Planck equation can be extracted from the noisy data sets, and deterministic laws and fluctuating forces of the dynamics can be identified. The method is validated by the application to simulated one- and two-dimensional noisy data sets.

The notion of self-similar energy cascades and multifractality has long since been connected with fully developed, homogeneous and isotropic turbulence. We introduce a number of amendments to the standard methods for analysing the multifractal properties of the energy dissipation field of a turbulent flow.
