Understanding Anomaly Detection

October 2017
Database Trends & Applications;Oct/Nov2017, Vol. 31 Issue 5, p27
The article discusses the two popular methods for detecting anomalies in statistics which includes standard deviation and percentiles. It mentions impact of datapoint variance from the mean, on size of the standard deviation. It also states the factors influencing percentiles such as sensitivity, dispersion and normal distribution of values.

    A global weighted-mean approximation to scattered lines is introduced. Rational Gaussian weights are stretched along lines and standard deviations of Gaussians are selected in such a way as to produce surfaces that closely follow data along lines. When the lengths of the lines approach zero, the...
