>Statistical techniques, in particular time series techniques, are widely used in astronomy and meteorology. Despite this, until recently there had been no attempt to bring researchers from the fields of statistics, astronomy, and meteorology together to discuss and formalize important problems.
Applications of Time Series Analysis in Astronomy and Meteorology brings together a series of papers by experts in the above-mentioned fields. The material presented covers the theory and methodology of time series and their applications to astronomy, meteorology, and climatology. The book considers topics such as detection of periodicities, spectral analysis of unequally spaced data, detection of change points and higher order spectral methods of non-linear and non-Gaussian signals. The material also address the estimation of fractal dimension and applications of wavelet methods to astronomy.
