    incrmapcorr

    NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

    Compute a moving sample absolute Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient incrementally.

    The Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient between random variables X and Y is defined as

    Equation for the Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient.

    where the numerator is the covariance and the denominator is the product of the respective standard deviations.

    For a sample of size W, the sample Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient is defined as

    Equation for the sample Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient.

    The sample absolute Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient is thus defined as the absolute value of the sample Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient.

    Installation

    npm install @stdlib/stats-incr-mapcorr

    Usage

    var incrmapcorr = require( '@stdlib/stats-incr-mapcorr' );

    incrmapcorr( window[, mx, my] )

    Returns an accumulator function which incrementally computes a moving sample absolute Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient. The window parameter defines the number of values over which to compute the moving sample absolute Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient.

    var accumulator = incrmapcorr( 3 );

    If means are already known, provide mx and my arguments.

    var accumulator = incrmapcorr( 3, 5.0, -3.14 );

    accumulator( [x, y] )

    If provided input values x and y, the accumulator function returns an updated accumulated value. If not provided input values x and y, the accumulator function returns the current accumulated value.

    var accumulator = incrmapcorr( 3 );
    
    var ar = accumulator();
    // returns null
    
    // Fill the window...
    ar = accumulator( 2.0, 1.0 ); // [(2.0, 1.0)]
    // returns 0.0
    
    ar = accumulator( -5.0, 3.14 ); // [(2.0, 1.0), (-5.0, 3.14)]
    // returns ~1.0
    
    ar = accumulator( 3.0, -1.0 ); // [(2.0, 1.0), (-5.0, 3.14), (3.0, -1.0)]
    // returns ~0.925
    
    // Window begins sliding...
    ar = accumulator( 5.0, -9.5 ); // [(-5.0, 3.14), (3.0, -1.0), (5.0, -9.5)]
    // returns ~0.863
    
    ar = accumulator( -5.0, 1.5 ); // [(3.0, -1.0), (5.0, -9.5), (-5.0, 1.5)]
    // returns ~0.803
    
    ar = accumulator();
    // returns ~0.803

    Notes

    • Input values are not type checked. If provided NaN or a value which, when used in computations, results in NaN, the accumulated value is NaN for at least W-1 future invocations. If non-numeric inputs are possible, you are advised to type check and handle accordingly before passing the value to the accumulator function.
    • As W (x,y) pairs are needed to fill the window buffer, the first W-1 returned values are calculated from smaller sample sizes. Until the window is full, each returned value is calculated from all provided values.
    • In comparison to the sample Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient, the sample absolute Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient is useful when only concerned with the strength of the correlation and not the direction.

    Examples

    var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' );
    var incrmapcorr = require( '@stdlib/stats-incr-mapcorr' );
    
    var accumulator;
    var x;
    var y;
    var i;
    
    // Initialize an accumulator:
    accumulator = incrmapcorr( 5 );
    
    // For each simulated datum, update the moving sample absolute correlation coefficient...
    for ( i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) {
        x = randu() * 100.0;
        y = randu() * 100.0;
        accumulator( x, y );
    }
    console.log( accumulator() );
