Bayesian Loss-based Approach to Change Point Analysis

Leisen, Fabrizio, Hinoveanu, Laurentiu, Villa, Cristiano (2019) Bayesian Loss-based Approach to Change Point Analysis. Computational Statistics and Data Analysis, 129 . pp. 61-78. ISSN 0167-9473. (doi:10.1016/j.csda.2018.08.008) (KAR id:69002)


A loss-based approach to change point analysis is proposed. In particular, the problem is looked from two perspectives. The first focuses on the definition of a prior when the number of change points is known a priori. The second contribution aims to estimate the number of change points by using a loss-based approach recently introduced in the literature. The latter considers change point estimation as a model selection exercise. The performance of the proposed approach it is shown on simulated data and real data sets.
