WBS.network {changepoints} R Documentation

## Wild binary segmentation for network change points detection.

### Description

Perform wild binary segmentation for network change points detection.

### Usage

WBS.network(data_mat1, data_mat2, s, e, Alpha, Beta, delta, level = 0)


### Arguments

 data_mat1 A numeric matrix of observations with with horizontal axis being time, and with each column be the vectorized adjacency matrix. data_mat2 An independent copy of data_mat1. s A integer scalar of starting index. e A integer scalar of ending index. Alpha A integer vector of starting indices of random intervals. Beta A integer vector of ending indices of random intervals. delta A positive integer scalar of minimum spacing. level Should be fixed as 0.

### Value

An object of class "BS", which is a list with the following structure:

 S A vector of estimated change points (sorted in strictly increasing order). Dval A vector of values of CUSUM statistic based on KS distance. Level A vector representing the levels at which each change point is detected. Parent A matrix with the starting indices on the first row and the ending indices on the second row.

### Examples

p = 15 # number of nodes
rho = 0.5 # sparsity parameter
block_num = 3 # number of groups for SBM
n = 100 # sample size for each segment
# connectivity matrix for the first and the third segments
conn1_mat = rho * matrix(c(0.6,1,0.6,1,0.6,0.5,0.6,0.5,0.6), nrow = 3)
# connectivity matrix for the second segment
conn2_mat = rho * matrix(c(0.6,0.5,0.6,0.5,0.6,1,0.6,1,0.6), nrow = 3)
set.seed(1)
can_vec = sample(1:p, replace = FALSE) # randomly assign nodes into groups
sbm1 = simu.SBM(conn1_mat, can_vec, n, symm = TRUE, self = TRUE)
sbm2 = simu.SBM(conn2_mat, can_vec, n, symm = TRUE, self = TRUE)
data_mat = cbind(sbm1$obs_mat, sbm2$obs_mat)
data_mat1 = data_mat[,seq(1,ncol(data_mat),2)]
data_mat2 = data_mat[,seq(2,ncol(data_mat),2)]
M = 10
intervals = WBS.intervals(M = M, lower = 1, upper = ncol(data_mat1))
temp = WBS.network(data_mat1, data_mat2, 1, ncol(data_mat1),
intervals$Alpha, intervals$Beta, delta = 5)
rho_hat = quantile(rowMeans(data_mat), 0.95)
tau = p*rho_hat*(log(n))^2/20 # default threshold given in the paper
cpt_init = unlist(thresholdBS(temp, tau)\$cpt_hat[,1])
cpt_refined = local.refine.network(cpt_init, data_mat1, data_mat2,
self = TRUE, tau2 = p*rho_hat/3, tau3 = Inf)
cpt_WBS = 2*cpt_init
cpt_refined = 2*cpt_refined
