I have three data sets from same source. I know they are interdependent and stochastic also. The datasets are of very high frequency (see the graph, X axis is time and Y axis is value). I want to represent these three signals in a single mathematical function. Is it possible? enter image description here

In the above graph, please see there is a pattern or seasonality. If we change one then other also changes. I have tried to google for it but did not find any model that can completely represent this type of data in a single expression.

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to DSP.SE! Mathematical models of signals are very easy to formulate. However, you've said nothing that would allow us to help you with this. Please let us know: Are the signals sine waves? Are they stochastic (random)? Is there any structure at all? What do you mean by "interdependent"? What do you mean by "very high frequency"? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @JimClay : I want a mathematical expression(s) that represents these three stochastic signals, in other words if I give the input (say we have three signals a,b,c so if we input the value of a,c) then it will produce the result of b at that time quantum. $\endgroup$

Try the Eureqa software. It tries to find the simplest mathematical relation between multiple data. If the relation truly has a simple symbolic form, I think it should find it. Otherwise it will produce some strangely formulated approximation.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks!! At a first glance it looks like an appealing tool ... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Eureqa gives me some strange equation when I tried it to fit other set of data it does not fit well (data from same source but on different time).. $\endgroup$
