Techniques implemented in KPC Toolbox
KPC Toolbox fits the trace of inter-arrival times and generate a MAP. There are two novel fitting techniques implemented in this Toolbox. First, a recently-proposed Kronecker Product Composition (KPC) fitting method. The basic idea is to reduce the moment and temporal dependence fitting problem to assigning the characteristics of smaller MAPs composed by no more than 2 states. The second innovation of the KPC-Toolbox is the automatic determination of the order of the MAPs used in fitting (the number of the states), while order selection remains as an open problem in the literature of MAP fitting.
