In stochastic processes, chaos theory and time series analysis, detrended fluctuation analysis (dfa) is a method for determining the statistical self-affinity of a signal. It is useful for analysing time series that appear to be long-memory processes (diverging correlation time, e.). Detrended fluctuation analysis (dfa) a simplified and general definition characterizes a time series as stationary if its mean, standard deviation and higher moments, as well as the correlation functions, are invariant under time translation. Detrended fluctuation analysis or dfa is a complicated name but, as an algorithm, is simpler than its name suggests. What dfa is trying to do is to see how the magnitudes of fluctuations in any window of time is related to the magnitude of fluctuations in longer and longer windows of time. The method of detrended fluctuation analysis has proven useful in revealing the extent of long-range correlations in time series. Briefly, the time series to be analyzed (with n samples) is first integrated. Next, the integrated time series is divided into boxes of equal length, n. In each box of length n, a least squares line is fit to the data (representing the trend in that box). Detrended fluctuation analysis (dfa) as discussed above, a bounded time series can be mapped to a self-similar process by integration. However, another challenge facing investigators applying this type of fractal analysis to physiologic data is that these time series are often highly non-stationary (fig.).

Has been widely used to detect the long-range correlations in financial time series , , , , , , , ,. This method can be used to investigate the long-range correlations embedded in the non-stationary series, and it overcomes the drawback of conventional rescale range analysis 11. detrended fluctuation analysis, was introduced by peng et al. To quantify lrtc with less strict assumptions about the stationarity of the signal than the auto-correlation function. This was supported with a set of online tutorials and datasets 1 to allow researchers to investigate the method on real-life data (goldberger et al.). In recent years the detrended fluctuation analysis (dfa) method , has become a widely used technique for the determination of (mono-) fractal scaling properties and the detection of long-range correlations in noisy, nonstationary time series , , ,.
