### How to find epochs where two time series are less aligned than they should be?

I have two time series that normally should be quite aligned, in the sense that they should show similiar behaviour - i.e. when one goes up, the other should also go up, etc. Unfortunately, they are ...

### Are ACF plots sufficient to detect white noise assuming probable existence of non linear associations?

ACF plots use autocorrelations tests to determine associations in time series. Autocorrelations, however, only measure linear associations. To my understanding, certain non-linear associations can ...

### Statistic that is responsive to changes in time series, yet not too volatile

Let's say I have a fairly volatile time series $X_t$ - it doesn't have any reason to show an upward / downward trend, but it does show drops and spikes from time to time. It can also change level (e.g....
