May hgh level represetatos of tme seres have bee proposed for data mg, ludg Fourer trasforms, wavelets, egewaves, peewse polyomal models et. May researhers have also osdered symbol represetatos of tme seres, otg that suh represetatos would potetalty allow researhers to aval of the wealth of data strutures ad algorthms from the text proessg ad boformats ommutes. Whle may symbol represetatos of tme seres have bee trodued over the past deades, they all suffer from two fatal flaws. Frstly, the dmesoalty of the symbol represetato s the same as the orgal data, ad vrtually all data mg algorthms sale poorly wth dmesoalty. Seodly, although dstae measures a be defed o the symbol approahes, these dstae measures have lttle orrelato wth dstae measures defed o the orgal tme seres. I ths work we formulate a ew symbol represetato of tme seres. Our represetato s uque that t allows dmesoalty/umerosty reduto, ad t also allows dstae measures to be defed o the symbol approah that lower boud orrespodg dstae measures defed o the orgal seres. As we shall demostrate, ths latter feature s partularly extg beause t allows oe to ru erta data mg algorthms o the effetly mapulated symbol represetato, whle produg detal results to the algorthms that operate o the orgal data. I partular, we wll demostrate the utlty of our represetato o varous data mg tasks of lusterg, lassfato, query by otet, aomaly deteto, motf dsovery, ad vsualzato. Keywords Tme Seres, Data Mg, Symbol Represetato, Dsretze. Itroduto May hgh level represetatos of tme seres have bee proposed for data mg. Fgure llustrates a herarhy of all the varous tme seres represetatos the lterature [3,, 0, 4, 7, 30, 36, 53, 54, 63]. Oe represetato that the data mg ommuty has ot osdered detal s the dsretzato of the orgal data to symbol strgs. At frst glae ths seems a surprsg oversght. There s a eormous wealth of exstg algorthms ad data strutures that allow the effet mapulatos of strgs. Suh algorthms have reeved deades of atteto the text retreval ommuty, ad more reet atteto from the boformats ommuty [5, 9, 5, 5, 57, 60]. Some smple examples of tools that are ot defed for realvalued sequees but are defed for symbol approahes lude hashg, Markov models, suffx trees, deso trees et. There s, however, a smple explaato for the data mg ommuty s lak of terest strg mapulato as a supportg tehque for mg tme seres. If the data are trasformed to vrtually ay of the other represetatos depted Fgure, the t s possble to measure the smlarty of two tme seres that represetato spae, suh that the dstae s guarateed to lower boud the true dstae betwee the tme seres the orgal spae. Ths smple fat s at the ore of almost all algorthms tme The exeptos are radom mappgs, whh are oly guarateed to be wth a epslo of the true dstae wth a erta probablty, trees, terpolato ad atural laguage.
2 seres data mg ad dexg [0]. However, spte of the fat that there are dozes of tehques for produg dfferet varats of the symbol represetato [3, 5, 7], there s o kow method for alulatg the dstae the symbol spae, whle provdg the lower boudg guaratee. I addto to allowg the reato of lower boudg dstae measures, there s oe other hghly desrable property of ay tme seres represetato, ludg a symbol oe. Almost all tme seres datasets are very hgh dmesoal. Ths s a hallegg fat beause all otrval data mg ad dexg algorthms degrade expoetally wth dmesoalty. For example, above 60 dmesos, dex strutures degrade to sequetal sag [6]. Noe of the symbol represetatos that we are aware of allow dmesoalty reduto [3, 5, 7]. There s some reduto the storage spae requred, se fewer bts are requred for eah value, however the trs dmesoalty of the symbol represetato s the same as the orgal data.

The leaf odes refer to the atual represetato, ad the teral odes refer to the lassfato of the approah. The otrbuto of ths paper s to trodue a ew represetato, the lower boudg symbol approah There s o doubt that a ew symbol represetato that remedes all the problems metoed above would be hghly desrable. More spefally, the symbol represetato should meet the followg rtera: spae effey, tme effey fast dexg, ad orretess of aswer sets o false dsmssals. I ths work we formally formulate a ovel symbol represetato ad show ts utlty o other tme seres tasks. Our represetato s uque that t allows dmesoalty/umerosty reduto, ad t also allows dstae measures to be defed o the symbol represetato that lower boud orrespodg popular dstae measures defed o the orgal data.

I partular, we wll demostrate the utlty of our represetato o the lass data mg tasks of lusterg [9], lassfato [4], dexg [, 0, 30, 63], ad aomaly deteto [4, 34, 54].

The revew below s eessarly bref; we refer terested readers to [3, 53] for a more depth revew. A prelmary verso of ths paper appears [4].
3 . Tme Seres Data Mg Tasks Whle makg o pretee to be exhaustve, the followg lst summarzes the areas that have see the majorty of researh terest tme seres data mg. Idexg: Gve a query tme seres, ad some smlarty/dssmlarty measure D,, fd the most smlar tme seres database DB [,, 0, 30, 63]. lusterg: Fd atural groupgs of the tme seres database DB uder some smlarty/dssmlarty measure D, [9, 36]. lassfato: Gve a ulabeled tme seres, assg t to oe of two or more predefed lasses [4]. Summarzato: Gve a tme seres otag datapots where s a extremely large umber, reate a possbly graph approxmato of whh retas ts essetal features but fts o a sgle page, omputer sree, exeutve summary et [43]. Aomaly Deteto: Gve a tme seres, ad some model of ormal behavor, fd all setos of whh ota aomales or surprsg/terestg/uexpeted/ovel behavor [4, 34, 54]. Se the datasets eoutered by data mers typally do t ft ma memory, ad dsk I/O teds to be the bottleek for ay data mg task, a smple geer framework for tme seres data mg has emerged [0]. The bas approah s outled Table. Table : A geer tme seres data mg approah.. 3. reate a approxmato of the data, whh wll ft ma memory, yet retas the essetal features of terest. Approxmately solve the task at had ma memory. Make hopefully very few aesses to the orgal data o dsk to ofrm the soluto obtaed Step, or to modfy the soluto so t agrees wth the soluto we would have obtaed o the orgal data. It should be lear that the utlty of ths framework depeds heavly o the qualty of the approxmato reated Step. If the approxmato s very fathful to the orgal data, the the soluto obtaed ma memory s lkely to be the same as, or very lose to, the soluto we would have obtaed o the orgal data. The hadful of dsk aesses made Step 3 to ofrm or slghtly modfy the soluto wll be osequetal ompared to the umber of dsk aesses requred had we worked o the orgal data. Wth ths md, there has bee great terest approxmate represetatos of tme seres, whh we osder below.. Tme Seres Represetatos As wth most problems omputer see, the sutable hoe of represetato greatly affets the ease ad effey of tme seres data mg. Wth ths md, a great umber of tme seres represetatos have bee trodued, ludg the Dsrete Fourer Trasform DFT [0], the Dsrete Wavelet Trasform DWT [], Peewse Lear, ad Peewse ostat models PAA [30], APA [4, 30], ad Sgular Value Deomposto SVD [30]. Fgure llustrates the most ommoly used represetatos. Reet work suggests that there s lttle to hoose betwee the above terms of dexg power [3], however, the represetatos have other features that may at as stregths or weakesses. As a smple example, wavelets have the useful multresoluto property, but are oly defed for tme seres that are a teger power of two legth []. Oe mportat feature of all the above represetatos s that they are real valued. Ths lmts the algorthms, data strutures ad deftos avalable for them. For example, aomaly deteto we aot meagfully defe the probablty of observg ay partular set of wavelet oeffets, se the
4 probablty of observg ay real umber s zero [38]. Suh lmtatos have lead researhers to osder usg a symbol represetato of tme seres. Dsrete Fourer Trasform Peewse Lear Approxmato Haar Wavelet Adaptve Peewse ostat Approxmato Fgure : The most ommo represetatos for tme seres data mg. Eah a be vsualzed as a attempt to approxmate the sgal wth a lear ombato of bass futos Whle there are lterally hudreds of papers o dsretzg symbolzg, tokezg, quatzg tme seres [3, 7] see [5] for a extesve survey, oe of the tehques allows a dstae measure that lower bouds a dstae measure defed o the orgal tme seres. For ths reaso, the geer tme seres data mg approah llustrated Table s of lttle utlty, se the approxmate soluto to problem reated ma memory may be arbtrarly dssmlar to the true soluto that would have bee obtaed o the orgal data. If, however, oe had a symbol approah that allowed lower boudg of the true dstae, oe ould take advatage of the geer tme seres data mg model, ad of a host of other algorthms, deftos ad data strutures whh are oly defed for dsrete data, ludg hashg, Markov models, ad suffx trees. Ths s exatly the otrbuto of ths paper. We all our symbol represetato of tme seres SAX Symbol Aggregate approxmato, ad defe t the ext seto. 3. SAX: Our Symbol Approah SAX allows a tme seres of arbtrary legth to be redued to a strg of arbtrary legth w, w <, typally w <<. The alphabet sze s also a arbtrary teger a, where a >. Table summarzes the major otato used ths ad subsequet setos. Table : A summarzato of the otato used ths paper Ĉ w a A tme seres,, A Peewse Aggregate Approxmato of a tme seres,..., w A symbol represetato of a tme seres ˆ ˆ,..., ˆ w The umber of PAA segmets represetg tme seres Alphabet sze e.g., for the alphabet {a,b,}, a 3 Our dsretzato proedure s uque that t uses a termedate represetato betwee the raw tme seres ad the symbol strgs. We frst trasform the data to the Peewse Aggregate Approxmato PAA represetato ad the symbolze the PAA represetato to a dsrete strg. There are two mportat advatages to dog ths: Dmesoalty Reduto: We a use the welldefed ad welldoumeted dmesoalty reduto power of PAA [30, 63], ad the reduto s automatally arred over to the symbol represetato. Lower Boudg: Provg that a dstae measure betwee two symbol strgs lower bouds the true dstae betwee the orgal tme seres s otrval. The key observato that
5 allowed us to prove lower bouds s to oetrate o provg that the symbol dstae measure lower bouds the PAA dstae measure. The we a prove the desred result by trastvty by smply potg to the exstg proofs for the PAA represetato tself [3, 63]. We wll brefly revew the PAA tehque before osderg the symbol exteso. 3. Dmesoalty Reduto Va PAA A tme seres of legth a be represeted a wdmesoal spae by a vetor elemet of s alulated by the followg equato: w w j j + w,,. The th Smply stated, to redue the tme seres from dmesos to w dmesos, the data s dvded to w equal szed frames. The mea value of the data fallg wth a frame s alulated ad a vetor of these values beomes the dataredued represetato. The represetato a be vsualzed as a attempt to approxmate the orgal tme seres wth a lear ombato of box bass futos as show Fgure 3. For smplty ad larty, we assume that s dvsble by w. We wll relax ths assumpto Seto K w Fgure 3: The PAA represetato a be vsualzed as a attempt to model a tme seres wth a lear ombato of box bass futos. I ths ase, a sequee of legth 8 s redued to 8 dmesos The PAA dmesoalty reduto s tutve ad smple, yet has bee show to rval more sophstated dmesoalty reduto tehques lke Fourer trasforms ad wavelets [30, 3, 63]. We ormalze eah tme seres to have mea of zero ad a stadard devato of oe before overtg t to the PAA represetato, se t s well uderstood that t s meagless to ompare tme seres wth dfferet offsets ad ampltudes [3]. 3. Dsretzato Havg trasformed a tme seres database to the PAA we a apply a further trasformato to obta a dsrete represetato. It s desrable to have a dsretzato tehque that wll produe symbols wth equprobablty [5, 45]. Ths s easly aheved se ormalzed tme seres have a Gaussa dstrbuto [38]. To llustrate ths, we extrated subsequees of legth 8 from 8 dfferet tme seres ad plotted ormal probablty plots of the data as show Fgure 4. A ormal probablty plot s a graphal tehque that shows f the data s approxmately ormally dstrbuted []: a approxmate straght le dates that the data s approxmately ormally dstrbuted. As the fgure shows, the hghly lear ature of the plots suggests that the data s approxmately ormal. For a large famly of the tme seres data our dsposal, we ote that the Gaussa assumpto s deed true. For the small subset of data where the assumpto s ot
6 obeyed, the effey s slghtly deterorated; however, the orretess of the algorthm s uaffeted. The orretess of the algorthm s guarateed by the lowerboudg property of the dstae measure the symbol spae, whh we wll expla the ext seto. Gve that the ormalzed tme seres have hghly Gaussa dstrbuto, we a smply determe the breakpots that wll produe a equalszed areas uder Gaussa urve [38]. Defto. Breakpots: breakpots are a sorted lst of umbers Β β,,β a suh that the area uder a N0, Gaussa urve from β to β + /a β 0 ad β a are defed as  ad, respetvely. These breakpots may be determed by lookg them up a statstal table. For example, Table 3 gves the breakpots for values of a from 3 to 0. Fgure 4: A ormal probablty plot of the dstrbuto of values from subsequees of legth 8 from 8 dfferet datasets. The hghly lear ature of the plot strogly suggests that the data ame from a Gaussa dstrbuto Table 3: A lookup table that otas the breakpots that dvde a Gaussa dstrbuto a arbtrary umber from 3 to 0 of equprobable regos a β β β β β β β β β β 9.8
7 Oe the breakpots have bee obtaed we a dsretze a tme seres the followg maer. We frst obta a PAA of the tme seres. All PAA oeffets that are below the smallest breakpot are mapped to the symbol a, all oeffets greater tha or equal to the smallest breakpot ad less tha the seod smallest breakpot are mapped to the symbol b, et. Fgure 5 llustrates the dea. b b b b  a a a Fgure 5: A tme seres s dsretzed by frst obtag a PAA approxmato ad the usg predetermed breakpots to map the PAA oeffets to SAX symbols. I the example above, wth 8, w 8 ad a 3, the tme seres s mapped to the word baabb Note that ths example the 3 symbols, a, b ad are approxmately equprobable as we desred. We all the oateato of symbols that represet a subsequee a word. Defto. Word: A subsequee of legth a be represeted as a word ˆ ˆ, K, ˆ as follows. w Let alpha deote the th elemet of the alphabet,.e., alpha a ad alpha b. The the mappg from a PAA approxmato to a word Ĉ s obtaed as follows: ˆ β < β alpha j, f j j We have ow defed our symbol represetato the PAA represetato s merely a termedate step requred to obta the symbol represetato. Reetly, [6] has emprally ad theoretally show some very promsg lusterg results for lppg, that s to say, overtg the tme seres to a bary vetor. They demostrated that dsretzg the tme seres before lusterg sgfatly mproves the auray the presee of outlers. We ote that lppg s atually a speal ase of SAX, where a. 3.3 Dstae Measures Havg trodued the ew represetato of tme seres, we a ow defe a dstae measure o t. By far the most ommo dstae measure for tme seres s the Euldea dstae [3, 5]. Gve two tme seres ad of the same legth, Eq. 3 defes ther Euldea dstae, ad Fgure 6A llustrates a vsual tuto of the measure. D, q 3 If we trasform the orgal subsequees to PAA represetatos, ad, usg Eq., we a the obta a lower boudg approxmato of the Euldea dstae betwee the orgal subsequees by: w q DR, 4 w Ths measure s llustrated Fgure 6B. If we further trasform the data to the symbol represetato, we a defe a MINDIST futo that returs the mmum dstae betwee the orgal tme seres of two words:
8 w dst qˆ, ˆ MINDIST ˆ, ˆ 5 w The futo resembles Eq. 4 exept for the fat that the dstae betwee the two PAA oeffets has bee replaed wth the subfuto dst. The dst futo a be mplemeted usg a table lookup as llustrated Table 4. Table 4: A lookup table used by the MINDIST futo. Ths table s for a alphabet of ardalty of 4,.e. a4. The dstae betwee two symbols a be read off by examg the orrespodg row ad olum. For example, dsta,b 0 ad dsta, a b d a b d The value ell r, for ay lookup table a be alulated by the followg expresso. 0, f r ell 6 r, βmax r, βm r,, otherwse For a gve value of the alphabet sze a, the table eeds oly be alulated oe, the stored for fast lookup. The MINDIST futo a be vsualzed s Fgure 6..5 A B ˆ ˆ baabb babaa Fgure 6: A vsual tuto of the three represetatos dsussed ths work, ad the dstae measures defed o them. A The Euldea dstae betwee two tme seres a be vsualzed as the square root of the sum of the squared dfferees of eah par of orrespodg pots. B The dstae measure defed for the PAA approxmato a be see as the square root of the sum of the squared dfferees betwee eah par of orrespodg PAA oeffets, multpled by the square root of the ompresso rate. The dstae betwee two SAX represetatos of a tme seres requres lookg up the dstaes betwee eah par of symbols, squarg them, summg them, takg the square root ad fally multplyg by the square root of the ompresso rate
9 As metoed, oe of the most mportat haratersts of SAX s that t provdes a lowerboudg dstae measure. Below, we show that MINDIST lowerbouds the Euldea dstae two steps. Frst, we wll show that the PAA dstae lowerbouds the Euldea dstae. The proof has appeared [3] by the urret author; for ompleteess, we repeat the proof here. Next, we wll show that MINDIST lowerbouds the PAA dstae, whh tur, by trastvty, shows that MINDIST lowerbouds the Euldea dstae. Step : We eed to show that the PAA dstae lowerbouds the Euldea dstae; that s, D, DR,. We wll show the proof o the ase where there s a sgle PAA frame.e. mappg the tme seres to oe sgle PAA oeffet. A more geeralzed proof for N frames a be obtaed by applyg the sgleframe proof o every frame. Proof: Usg the same otatos as Eq. 3 ad Eq. 4, we wat to prove that w q w q 7 Let ad be the meas of tme seres ad, respetvely. Se we are osderg oly the sgleframe ase, Ieq. 7 a be rewrtte as: q 8 Squarg both sdes we get q 9 Eah pot q a be represeted term of,.e. Thus, Ieq. 9 a be rewrtte as: q q. Same apples to eah pot. q 0 Rearragg the lefthad sde we get q We a expad ad rewrte Ieq. as: q + q By dstrbutve law we get:
10 q q + 3 Or q q + 4 Reall that q q, whh meas that q q, ad smlarty,. Therefore, the summato part of the seod term o the lefthad sde of the equalty beomes: q q q q q q Substtutg 0 to the seod term o the lefthad sde, Ieq. 4 beomes: 0 q + 5 aellg out o both sdes of the equalty, we get q 0 6 whh always holds true, hee ompletes the proof. Step : otug from Step ad usg the same methodology, we wll ow show that MINDIST lowerbouds the PAA dstae; that s, we wll show that ˆ ˆ, dst 7 Let a, b, ad so forth, there are two possble searos: ase : ˆ ˆ. I other words, the symbols represetg the two tme seres are ether the same, or oseutve from the alphabet, e.g. ' ' ˆ ' ' ˆ ', ' ˆ ˆ b ad a or a. From Eq. 6, we kow that the
11 MINDIST s 0 ths ase. Therefore, the rghthad sde of Ieq. 7 beomes zero, whh makes the equalty always hold true. ase : ˆ ˆ >. I other words, the symbols represetg the two tme seres are at least two alphabets apart, e.g. ˆ ' ' ad ˆ ' a'. For smplty, assume ˆ > ˆ ; the ase where ˆ < ˆ a be prove smlar fasho. Aordg to Eq. 6, dst ˆ, ˆ s dst ˆ, ˆ β β ˆ ˆ 8 For the example above, dst ' ', ' a' β β. Reall that Eq. states the followg: ˆ alpha j, f j β < β j So we kow that β β ˆ ˆ < < β β ˆ ˆ 9 Substtutg Eq. 8 to Ieq. 7 we get βˆ β ˆ 0 whh mples that β ˆ β ˆ Note that from our assumptos earler that ˆ ˆ > ad ˆ > ˆ.e. s at a hgher rego tha, we a drop the absolute value otatos o both sdes: β β ˆ ˆ Rearragg the terms we get: β ˆ β ˆ 3 whh we kow always holds true se, from Ieq. 9, we kow that
12 β 0 ˆ β ˆ < 0 4 Ths ompletes the proof for ˆ > ˆ. The ase where ˆ < ˆ a be prove smlarly, ad s omtted for brevty. There s oe ssue we must address f we are to use a symbol represetato of tme seres. If we wsh to approxmate a massve dataset ma memory, the parameters w ad a have to be hose suh a way that the approxmato makes the best use of the prmary memory avalable. There s a lear tradeoff betwee the parameter w otrollg the umber of approxmatg elemets, ad the value a otrollg the graularty of eah approxmatg elemet. It s ufeasble to determe the best tradeoff aalytally, se t s hghly data depedet. We a however emprally determe the best values wth a smple expermet. Se we wsh to aheve the tghtest possble lower bouds, we a smply estmate the lower bouds over all possble feasble parameters, ad hoose the best settgs. MINDIST ˆ, ˆ Tghtess of Lower Boud 5 D, We performed suh a test wth a oateato of 50 tme seres databases take from the UR tme seres data mg arhve. For every ombato of parameters we averaged the result of 00,000 expermets o subsequees of legth 56. Fgure 7 shows the results. Tghtess of lower boud Word Sze w Fgure 7: The emprally estmated tghtess of lower bouds over the ross produt of a [3 ] ad w [ 9]. The darker hstogram bars llustrate ombatos of parameters that requre approxmately equal spae to store every possble word. The results suggest that usg a low value for a results weak bouds. Whle t s tutve that larger alphabet szes yeld better results, there are dmshg returs as a reases. If spae s a ssue, a alphabet sze the rage 5 to 8 seems to be a good hoe that offers a reasoable balae betwee spae ad tghtess of lower boud eah alphabet wth ths rage a be represeted wth just 3 bts. Ireasg the alphabet sze would requre more bts to represet eah alphabet. We ed ths seto wth a vsual omparso betwee SAX ad the four most used represetatos the lterature Fgure 8. We a see that SAX preserves the geeral shape of the orgal tme seres. Note that se SAX s a symbol represetato, the alphabets a be stored as bts rather tha doubles, whh results a osderable amout of spaesavg.

I addto, our approah a redue the umerosty of the data for some applatos. Most applatos assume that we have oe very log tme seres T, ad that maageable subsequees of legth are extrated by use of a sldg wdow, the stored a matrx for further mapulato [, 0, 30, 63]. Fgure 9 llustrates the dea. T p 67 0 p Fgure 9: A llustrato of the otato trodued ths seto: A tme seres T of legth 8, the subsequee 67, of legth 6, ad the frst 8 subsequees extrated by a sldg wdow. Note that the sldg wdows are overlappg Whe performg sldg wdows subsequee extrato, wth ay of the realvalued represetatos, we must store all T  + extrated subsequees dmesoalty redued form. However, mage for a momet that we are usg our proposed approah. If the frst word extrated s aabb, ad the wdow s shfted to dsover that the seod word s also aabb, we a reasoably dede ot to lude the seod ourree of the word sldg wdows matrx. If we ever eed to retreve all ourrees of aabb, we a go to the loato poted to by the frst ourrees, ad remember to slde to the rght, testg to see f the ext wdow s also mapped to the same word.

The utlty of ths optmzato depeds o the parameters used ad the data tself, but t typally yelds a umerosty reduto fator of two or three. However, may datasets are haraterzed by log perods of lttle or o movemet, followed by bursts of atvty sesmologal data s a obvous example. O these datasets the umerosty reduto fator a be huge. osder the example show Fgure 0.

Oly a poter to the frst ourree must be reorded, thus produg a large reduto umerosty There s oly oe speal ase we must osder. As we oted Seto 3., we ormalze eah tme seres ludg subsequees to have a mea of zero ad a stadard devato of oe. However, f the subsequee otas oly oe value, the stadard devato s ot defed. More troublesome s the ase where the subsequee s almost ostat, perhaps 3 zeros ad a sgle If we ormalze ths subsequee, the sgle dfferg elemet wll have ts value exploded to Ths stuato ours qute frequetly. For example, the last 00 tme uts of the data Fgure 0 appear to be ostat, but atually ota ty amouts of ose. If we were to ormalze subsequees extrated from ths area, the ormalzato would magfy the ose to large meagless patters. We a easly deal wth ths problem, f the stadard devato of the sequee before ormalzato s below a epslo ε, we smply assg the etre word to the mddleraged alphabet e.g. f a Relaxato o the Number of Segmets So far we have desrbed SAX wth the assumpto that the legth of the tme seres s dvsble by the umber of segmets,.e. /w must be a teger. If s ot dvdable by w, there wll be some pots the tme seres that we are ot sure whh segmet to put them. For example, Fgure A, we are dvdg 0 data pots to 5 segmets. Ad t s obvous that pot, should be segmet ; pot 3, 4 should be segmet ; so o ad so forth. I Fgure B, we are dvdg 0 data pots to 3 segmets. It s ot lear whh segmet pot 4 should go: segmet or segmet. Same problem holds for pot 7. The assumpto must be dvdable by w learly lmts our hoes of w, ad s problemat f s a prme umber. Here we show that ths eeds ot be the ase ad provde a smple soluto whe s ot dvsble by w. Istead of puttg the whole pot to a segmet, we a put part of t. For example, Fgure B, pot 4 otrbutes ts /3 to segmet ad ts /3 to segmet, ad pot 7 otrbutes ts /3 to segmet ad ts /3 to segmet 3. Ths makes eah segmet otas exatly 3 /3 data pots ad solves the udvdable problem. Ths geeralzato s mplemeted the later verso of SAX, as well as some of the applatos that utlze SAX.

Expermetal Valdato of Our Symbol Approah I ths seto, we perform varous data mg tasks usg our symbol approah ad ompare the results wth other wellkow exstg approahes. For lusterg, lassfato, ad aomaly deteto, we ompare the results wth the lass Euldea dstae, ad wth other prevously proposed symbol approahes. Note that oe of these other approahes use dmesoalty reduto. I the ext paragraphs we summarze the strawme represetatos that we ompare ours to. We hoose these two approahes se they are typal represetatves of approahes the lterature. AdréJösso, ad Badal [3] proposed the SDA algorthm that omputes the hages betwee values from oe stae to the ext, ad dvde the rage to userpredefed setos. The dsadvatages of ths approah are obvous: pror kowledge of the data dstrbuto of the tme seres s requred order to set the breakpots; ad the dsretzed tme seres does ot oserve the geeral shape or dstrbuto of the data values. Huag ad Yu proposed the IMPATS algorthm, whh uses hage rato betwee oe tme pot to the ext tme pot to dsretze the tme seres [7]. The rage of hage ratos are the dvded to equalszed setos ad mapped to symbols. The tme seres s overted to a dsretzed olleto of hage ratos. As wth SAX, the user eeds to defe the ardalty of symbols. 4. lusterg lusterg s oe of the most ommo data mg tasks, beg useful ts ow rght as a exploratory tool, ad also as a subroute more omplex algorthms [6,, 9]. We osder two lusterg algorthms, oe of herarhal lusterg, ad oe of parttoal lusterg. 4.. Herarhal lusterg omparg herarhal lustergs s a very good way to ompare ad otrast smlarty measures, se a dedrogram of sze N summarzes ON dstae alulatos [3]. The evaluato s typally subjetve, we smply adjudge whh dstae measure appears to reate the most atural groupgs of the data. However, f we kow the data labels advae we a also make objetve statemets of the qualty of the lusterg. I Fgure we lustered e tme seres from the otrol hart dataset, three eah from the dereasg tred, upward shft ad ormal lasses.
16 Euldea SAX IMPATS alphabet8 SDA Fgure : A omparso of the four dstae measures ablty to luster members of the otrol hart dataset. omplete lkage was used as the agglomerato tehque I ths ase we a objetvely state that SAX s superor, se t orretly assgs eah lass to ts ow subtree. Ths s smply a sde effet due to the smoothg effet of dmesoalty reduto. Therefore, t s ot surprsg that SAX a sometmes outperform the smple Euldea dstae, espeally o osy data, or data wth shftg o the tmeaxs. Ths fat s demostrated the dedrogram produed by Euldea dstae: the ormal lass, whh otas a lot of ose, s ot lustered orretly. More geerally, we observed that SAX losely mms Euldea dstae o varous datasets. The reasos that SDA ad IMPATS perform poorly, we observe, are that ether symbol represetato s very desrptve of the geeral shape of the tme seres, ad that the lak of dmesoalty reduto a further dstort the results f the data s osy. What SDA does s essetally dffereg the tme seres, ad the dsretzg the resultg seres. Whle dffereg has bee used hstorally statstal tme seres aalyss, ts purposes to remove some autoorrelato, ad to make a tme seres statoary are ot always applable determato of smlarty data mg. I addto, although omputg the dervatves tells the type of hage from oe tme pot to the ext tme pot: sharp rease, slght rease, sharp derease, et., ths approah does t appear very useful se tme seres data are typally osy. More spefally, addto to the overall treds or shapes, there are oses that appear throughout the etre tme seres. Wthout ay smoothg or dmesoalty reduto, these oses are lkely to overshadow the atual haratersts of the tme seres. To demostrate why the dereasg tred ad the upward shft lasses are dstgushable by the lusterg algorthm for SDA, let s look at what the dffereed seres look lke. Fgure 3 shows the orgal tme seres ad ther orrespodg seres after dffereg. It s lear that the dffereed seres from the same lass are ot ay more smlar tha those from a dfferet lass. As a matter of fat, as we ompute the parwse dstaes betwee all 6 dffereed seres, we realze that the dstaes are ot datve at all of the lasses these data belog. Table 5 ad Table 6 show the ter ad the tradstaes betwee the seres the seres from the dereasg tred lass are deoted as A, ad the seres from the upward shft are deoted as B. Iterestgly, [3], the authors show that takg the frst dervatves.e. dffereg atually worses the results whe ompared to usg the raw data. They further show that performg peewse ormalzato.e. ormalzato o fxedszed wdows rather o the whole seres o the frst dervatves mproves the results. Our expermetal results valdate ther observatos, as SDA does ot do ay kd of ormalzato, whereas peewse ormalzato s a part of SAX the PAA step.
17 IMPATS suffers from smlar problems as SDA. I addto, t s lear that ether IMPATS or SDA a beat smple Euldea dstae, ad the dsusso above apples to all data mg tasks, se the problems le the ature of the represetatos.

A A A3 B B B3 A A A A A A Parttoal lusterg Although herarhal lusterg s a good saty hek for ay proposed dstae measure, t has lmted utlty for data mg beause of ts poor salablty. The most ommoly used data mg lusterg algorthm s kmeas [], so for ompleteess we wll osder t here. We performed kmeas o both the orgal raw data, ad our symbol represetato. Fgure 4 shows a typal ru of kmeas o a spae telemetry dataset. Both algorthms overge after teratos. Se kmeas algorthm seeks to optmze the objetve futo, by mmzg the sum of squared traluster error, we ompare ad plot the objetve futos for eah terato. The objetve futo for a gve lusterg s gve by Eq. 6, where x s the tme seres, ad m s the luster eter of the luster that x belogs to. The smaller the objetve futo, the more ompat thus better the lusters. F k N m x m The results here are qute ututve ad surprsg: workg wth a approxmato of the data gves better results tha workg wth the orgal data. Fortuately, a reet paper offers a suggesto as to why ths mght be so. It has bee show that talzg the lusters eters o a low dmeso approxmato of the data a mprove the qualty [6], ths s what lusterg wth SAX mpltly does. 6

Surprsgly, workg wth the symbol approxmato produes better results tha workg wth the orgal data I we trodue aother dstae measure based o SAX. By applyg t o lusterg, we show that t outperforms the Euldea dstae measure. 4. lassfato Number of Iteratos lassfato of tme seres has attrated muh terest from the data mg ommuty. Although spealpurpose algorthms have bee proposed [36], we wll osder oly the two most ommo lassfato algorthms for brevty, larty of presetatos ad to faltate depedet ofrmato of our fdgs. 4.. Nearest Neghbor lassfato To ompare dfferet dstae measures o earesteghbor lassfato, we use leavgoeout ross valdato. Frstly, we ompare SAX wth Euldea dstae, IMPATS, SDA, ad LP f. Two lass sythet datasets are used: the ylderbellfuel BF dataset has 50 staes of tme seres for eah of the three lusters, ad the otrol hart has 00 staes for eah of the sx lusters [3]. Se SAX allows dmesoalty ad alphabet sze as user put, ad the IMPATS allows varable alphabet sze, we ra the expermets o dfferet ombatos of dmesoalty reduto ad alphabet sze. For the other approahes we appled the smple dmesoalty reduto tehque of skppg data pots at a fxed terval. I Fgure 5, we show the result wth a dmesoalty reduto of 4 to. Smlar results were observed for other levels of dmesoalty reduto. Oe aga, SAX s ablty to beat Euldea dstae s probably due to the smoothg effet of dmesoalty reduto, evertheless ths expermet does show the superorty of SAX over the others proposed the lterature.

We tested dfferet alphabet szes for SAX ad IMPATS, SDA s alphabet sze s fxed at 5 Se both IMPATS ad SDA perform poorly ompared to Euldea dstae ad SAX, we wll exlude them from the rest of the lassfato expermets. To provde a loser look o how SAX ompares to Euldea dstae, we ra a extesve expermet ad ompared the error rates o datasets avalable ole at Eah dataset s splt to trag ad testg parts. We use the trag part to searh the best value for SAX parameters w umber of SAX words ad a sze of the alphabet: For w, we searh from up to / s the legth of the tme seres. Eah tme we double the value of w. For a, we searh eah value betwee 3 ad 0. If there s a te, we use the smaller values. The ompresso rato last olum of ext table s alulated as: w log a, beause for SAX 3 represetato we oly eed log a bts per word, whle for the orgal tme seres we eed 4 bytes 3 bts for eah value. The we lassfy the testg set based o the trag set usg oe earest eghbor lassfer ad report the error rate. The results are show Table 7. We also summarze the results by plottg the error rates for eah dataset as a dmesoal pot: EU_error, SAX_error. If a pot falls wth the lower tragle, the SAX s more aurate tha Euldea dstae, ad ve versa for the upper tragle. The plot s show Fgure 6. From ths expermet, we a olude that SAX s ompettve wth Euldea dstae, but requres far less spae.

21 4.. Deso Tree lassfato Beause of Nearest Neghbor s poor salablty, t s usutable for most data mg applatos; stead deso trees are the most ommo hoe of lassfer. Whle deso trees are defed for real data, attemptg to lassfy tme seres usg the raw data would learly be a mstake, se the hgh dmesoalty ad ose levels would result a deep, bushy tree wth poor auray. I a attempt to overome ths problem, Geurts [4] suggests represetg the tme seres as a Regresso Tree RT ths represetato s essetally the same as APA [30], see Fgure, ad trag the deso tree dretly o ths represetato. The tehque shows great promse. We ompared SAX to the Regresso Tree RT o two datasets; the results are Table 8. Table 8: A omparso of SAX wth the spealzed Regresso Tree approah for deso tree lassfato. Our approah used a alphabet sze of 6, both approahes used a dmesoalty of 8 Dataset SAX Regresso Tree 3.04 ± ±. BF 0.97 ±.4.4 ±.0 Note that whle our results are ompettve wth the RT approah, the RT represetato s udoubtedly superor terms of terpretablty [4]. Oe aga, our pot s smply that our blak box approah a be ompettve wth spealzed solutos. 4.3 uery by otet Idexg The majorty of work o tme seres data mg appearg the lterature has addressed the problem of dexg tme seres for fast retreval [53]. Ideed, t s ths otext that most of the represetatos eumerated Fgure were trodued [, 0, 30, 63]. Dozes of papers have trodued tehques to do dexg wth a symbol approah [3, 7], but wthout exepto, the aswer set retreved by these tehques a be very dfferet to the aswer set that would be retreved by the true Euldea dstae. It s oly by usg a lower boudg tehque that oe a guaratee retrevg the full aswer set, wth o false dsmssals [0]. To perform query by otet, we buld a dex usg SAX, ad ompare t to a dex bult usg the Haar wavelet approah []. Se the datasets we use are large ad dskresdet, ad the redued dmesoalty ould stll be potetally hgh or at least hgh eough suh that the performae degeerates to sequetal sa f Rtree were used [6], we use Vetor Approxmato VA fle as our dexg algorthm. We ote, however, that SAX ould also be dexed by lass strg dexg tehques suh as suffx trees. To ompare performae, we measure the peretage of dsk I/Os requred order to retreve the oeearest eghbor to a radomly extrated query, relatve to the umber of dsk I/Os requred for sequetal sa. Se t has bee forbly show that the hoe of dataset a make a sgfat dfferee the relatve dexg ablty of a represetato, we tested o more tha 50 datasets from the UR Tme Seres Data Mg Arhve. I Fgure 7 we show 4 represetatve examples. The yaxs shows the dex power terms of the peretage of the data retreved from the dsk, ompared to sequetal sa. I almost all ases, SAX shows a superor reduto the umber of dsk aesses. I addto, SAX does ot have the lmtato faed by the Haar Wavelet that the data legth must be a power of two.

I ths seto we llustrate examples of data mg algorthms that take explt advatage of the dsrete ature of our represetato Detetg Novel/Surprsg/Aomalous Behavor A smple dea for detetg aomalous behavor tme seres s to exame prevously observed ormal data ad buld a model of t. Data obtaed the future a be ompared to ths model ad ay lak of oformty a sgal a aomaly [4]. I order to aheve ths, [34] we ombed a statstally soud sheme wth a effet ombatoral approah. The statstally sheme s based o Markov has ad ormalzato. Markov has are used to model the ormal behavor, whh s ferred from the prevously observed data. The tme ad spaeeffey of the algorthm omes from the use of suffx tree as the ma data struture. Eah ode of the suffx tree represets a patter. The tree s aotated wth a sore obtaed omparg the support of a patter observed the ew data wth the support reorded the Markov model. Ths apparetly smple strategy turs out to be very effetve dsoverg surprsg patters. I the orgal work we use a smple symbol approah, smlar to IMPATS [7]; here we revst the work usg SAX. For ompleteess, we wll ompare SAX to two hghly refereed aomaly deteto algorthms that are defed o real valued represetatos, the TSAtree Wavelet based approah of Shahab et al. [54] ad the Immuology IMM spred work of Dasgupta ad Forrest [4]. We also lude the Markov tehque usg IMPATS ad SDA order to dsover how muh of the dfferee a be attrbuted dretly to the represetato. Fgure 8 otas a expermet omparg all 5 tehques.

Se suffx trees ad Markov models a be used oly o dsrete data, ths offers a motvato for our symbol approah. Whle all the other approahes, ludg the Markov Models usg IMPATS ad SDA represetatos, the Immuologybased aomaly deteto approah, ad the TSATree approah, dd ot learly dsover the aomales ad reported some false alarms, the SAXbased Markov Model learly fds the aomales wth o false alarms Motf Dsovery It s well uderstood boformats that overrepreseted DNA sequees ofte have bologal sgfae [5, 9, 5]. A substatal body of lterature has bee devoted to tehques to dsover suh patters [5, 57, 60]. I a prevous work, we defed the related oept of tme seres motf [43]. Tme seres motfs are lose aalogues of ther dsrete ouss, although the deftos must be augmeted to prevet erta degeerate solutos. The aïve algorthm to dsover the motfs s quadrat the legth of the tme seres. I [43], we demostrated a smple tehque to mtgate the quadrat omplexty by a large ostat fator, evertheless ths tme omplexty s learly uteable for most real datasets. The symbol ature of SAX offers a uque opportuty to aval of the wealth of boformats researh ths area. I partular, reet work by Tompa ad Buhler holds great promse [60]. The authors show that may prevously usolvable motf dsovery problems a be solved by hashg subsequees to bukets usg a radom subset of ther features as a key, the dog some postproessg searh o the hash bukets 3. They all ther algorthm PROJETION. We arefully remplemeted the radom projeto algorthm of Tompa ad Buhler, makg mor hages the postproessg step to allow for the fat that although we are hashg radom projetos of our symbol represetato, we atually wsh to dsover motfs defed o the orgal raw data [3]. Fgure 9 shows a example of a motf dsovered a dustral dataset [8] usg ths tehque.

The PROJETION algorthm s able to dsover motfs eve the presee of ose. Our exteso of the algorthm herts ths robustess to ose. We dret terested readers to [3] for more detaled dsusso of ths algorthm Vsualzato Data vsualzato tehques are very mportat for data aalyss, se the huma eye has bee frequetly advoated as the ultmate datamg tool. However, despte ther llustratve ature, whh a provde users better uderstadg of the data ad tutve terpretato of the mg results, there has bee surprsgly lttle work o vsualzg large tme seres datasets. Oe reaso for ths lak of terest s that tme seres data are also usually very massve sze. Wth lmted pxel spae ad the typally eormous amout of data at had, t s feasble to dsplay all the data o the sree at oe, muh less fdg ay useful formato from the data. How to effetly orgaze the data ad preset them suh a way that s tutve ad omprehesble to huma eyes thus remas a great hallege. Ideally, the vsualzato tehque should follow the Vsual Iformato Seekg Matras, as summarzed by Dr. Be Shederma: Overvew, zoom & flter, detalsodemad. I other words, t should be able to provde users the overvew or summary of the data, ad allows users to further vestgate o the terestg patters hghlghted by the tool. To ths ed, we developed VzTree [4], a tme seres patter dsovery ad vsualzato system based o augmetg suffx trees. VzTree vsually summarzes both the global ad loal strutures of tme seres data at the same tme. I addto, t provdes ovel teratve solutos to may patter dsovery problems, ludg the dsovery of frequetly ourrg patters motf dsovery, surprsg patters aomaly deteto, ad query by otet. The user teratve paradgm allows users to vsually explore the tme seres, ad perform realtme hypotheses testg. Se the use of suffx tree requres that the put data be dsrete, SAX s the perfet addate for dsretzg the tme seres data. ompared to the exstg tme seres vsualzato systems the lterature, VzTree s uque several respets. Frst, almost all other approahes assume hghly perod tme seres, whereas VzTree makes o suh assumpto. Other methods typally requre spae both memory spae, ad pxel spae that grows at least learly wth the legth of the tme seres, makg them uteable for mg massve datasets. Fally, VzTree allows us to vsualze a muh rher set of features, ludg global summares of the dfferees betwee two tme seres, loally repeated patters, aomales, et. I VzTree, patters are represeted a depthlmted tree struture, whh ther frequees of ourree are eoded the thkesses of brahes. The algorthm works by sldg a wdow aross the tme seres ad extratg subsequees of userdefed legths. The subsequees are the dsretzed to strgs by SAX ad serted to a augmeted suffx tree. Eah strg s regarded as a patter, ad the frequey of ourree for eah patter s eoded by the thkess of the brah: the thker the brah, the
25 more frequet the orrespodg patter. Motf dsovery ad aomaly deteto a thus be easly aheved: those that our frequetly a be regarded as motfs, ad those that our rarely a be regarded as aomaly. Fgure 0 shows the sreeshot of VzTree for aomaly deteto o the Duth power demad dataset. Eletrty osumpto s reorded every 5 mutes; therefore, for the year of 997, there are 35,040 data pots. The majorty of the weeks follow the regular ModayFrday, 5workgday patter, as show by the thk brahes. The th brahes deote the aomales the sese that the eletrty osumpto s abormal gve the day of the week. Note that VzTree, we reverse the alphabet orderg so the alphabets ow read topdow rather tha bottomup e.g. a s ow the topmost brah, rather tha the bottommost brah. Ths way, the strg better desrbes the atual shape of the tme seres a deotes the top rego, b the mddle rego, the bottom rego. The top rght wdow shows the subtree whe we lk o the d hld of the root ode. lkg o ay of the exstg brahes the ma or the subtree wdow wll plot the subsequees represeted by them the bottom rght wdow. The hghlghted, rled subsequee s retreved by lkg o the brah bab. The zoom shows why t s a aomaly: t s the begg of the threeday week durg hrstmas Thursday ad Frday off.

Although VzTree learly demostrates ts apablty detetg otrval patters, [40] we also devse a measure that quatfes the effetveess of the algorthm. The measure, whh we all the dssmlarty oeffet, desrbes how dssmlar two tme seres are, ad rages from 0 to. I essee, the oeffet summarzes the dfferee behavor of eah patter represeted by a strg two tme seres. More oretely, for eah patter, we out ts respetve umbers of ourrees both tme seres, ad see how muh the frequees dffer. We all ths measure support, whh s the weghted by the ofdee, or the degree of terestgess of the patter. For example, a patter that ours 0 tmes tme seres A ad 00 tmes tme seres B s
