## Fragmentation Metrics

### Description

Fragmentation methods to study the transition between two states, e.g. sedentary v.s. active.

### Usage

fragmentation(
x,
w,
thresh,
bout.length = 1,
metrics = c("mean_bout", "TP", "Gini", "power", "hazard", "all")
)


### Arguments

 x integer vector of activity data. w vector of wear flag data with same dimension as x. thresh threshold to binarize the data. bout.length minimum duration of defining an active bout; defaults to 1. metrics What is the fragmentation metrics to exract. Can be "mean_bout","TP","Gini","power","hazard",or all the above metrics "all".

### Details

Metrics include mean_bout (mean bout duration), TP (between states transition probability), Gini (gini index), power (alapha parameter for power law distribution) hazard (average hazard function)

### Value

A list with elements

 mean_r mean sedentary bout duration mean_a mean active bout duration SATP sedentary to active transition probability ASTP bactive to sedentary transition probability Gini_r Gini index for active bout Gini_a Gini index for sedentary bout h_r hazard function for sedentary bout h_a hazard function for active bout alpha_r power law parameter for sedentary bout alpha_a power law parameter for active bout

### Examples

data(example_activity_data)
count1 = c(t(example_activity_data$count[1,-c(1,2)])) wear1 = c(t(example_activity_data$wear[1,-c(1,2)]))
frag = fragmentation(x = count1, w = wear1, thresh = 100, bout.length = 1, metrics = "mean_bout")
