Automatic Window Width Determination for CoCoNAD


width.pdf (3909 kb) window width result diagrams (57 kb) scripts and other source files
width.tar.gz (50 kb)


The document width.pdf contains some result diagrams for experiments in which it was tried to find the analysis window width to be used with CoCoNAD automatically from the given data set. The ideas underlying the approach are described in the paper [Picado-Muiño and Borgelt 2015].

The archives width.{zip,tar.gz} contain scripts and other source files, with which the experiments were conducted and the document with the result diagrams was created.

Note that the scripts etc. were developed on/for a GNU/Linux system (Ubuntu 14.04 or later) and thus are directly executable on such a system or a similar one (that is, some other GNU/Linux distribution). Although at least most of the Python scripts should also be working on a Windows system (with the possible exception of the parallelization scripts), most of the other scripts (like the run script, which is the main control script, and the makefile, which controls generating the diagrams from the result data) may need porting to batch files or something similar.

On a GNU/Linux system, the following software needs to be installed to run the experiments:

On such a system the experiments can be run by simply calling the main script run (in the directory width) on the command line, which does everything. The execution of the experiments exploits 4-fold parallelization, thus making full use of the quadcore processors basically all modern computers are equipped with. The progress of the experiments can be followed on the command line, to which regular progress messages are written. Once all experiments are completed (which should take less than an hour on a modern computer system), the result diagrams are created and compiled into the final documents, which are also directly available above.
