Markov model for bursty behavior in streams


An implementation of Jon Kleinberg's burst detection algorithm. Uses an infinite Markov model to detect periods of increased activity in a series of discrete events with known times, and provides a simple visualization of the results.

The function kleinberg performs the analysis, returing a data frame containing a list of all of the ‘bursts’ and their intensities. The function plot.bursts can be used to display a simple visualization of the hierarchical burst structure.
