Sensitivity of principal components to changes in the presence of non-stationarity — •Henrik Bette and Thomas Guhr — Fakultät für Physik, Universität Duisburg-Essen, Duisburg, Deutschland
Non-stationarity affects the sensitivity of change detection in correlated systems described by sets of measurable variables. We study this by projecting onto different principal components. Non-stationarity is modeled as multiple normal states that exist in the system even before a change occurs. The studied changes occur in mean values, standard deviations or correlations of the variables. Monte Carlo simulations are performed to test the sensitivity for change detection with and without knowledge about the non-stationarity for different system dimensions and numbers of normal states. A comparison clearly shows that the knowledge about the non-stationarity of the system greatly improves change detection sensitivity for all principal components. This improvement is largest for those components that already provide the greatest possibility for change detection in the stationary case.
