A matrix approach to get the variance of the square of the fluctuation function of the DFA

Abstract

The fluctuation analysis (FA) and the detrended fluctuation analysis (DFA) make it possible to estimate the Hurst exponent H, which characterizes the self-similarity of a signal. Both are based on the fact that the so-called fluctuation function, which can be seen as an approximation of the standard deviation of the process scaled in time by multiplying the time variable by a positive constant, depends on H. The main novelty of the paper is to provide the expression of the variance of the square of the fluctuation function, by using a matrix formulation. We show that it depends on the correlation function of the signal under study when it is zero-mean and Gaussian. Illustrations are given when dealing with a zero-mean white Gaussian noise. Moving average processes and first-order autoregressive processes are also addressed.
