Math::Random::Brownian - Perl module for generating Fractional Brownian and Gaussian Noise

use Math::Random::Brownian; my $noise = Math::Random::Brownian->new(); my @Hosking_noise = $noise->Hosking(LENGTH => 30, HURST => 0.5, VARIANCE => 1.0, NOISE => 'Gaussian' ); my @Circ_noise = $noise->Circulant(LENGTH => 30, HURST => 0.5, VARIANCE => 1.0, NOISE => 'Brownian' ); my @Appr_noise = $noise->ApprCirc(LENGTH => 30, HURST => 0.5, VARIANCE => 1.0, NOISE => 'Brownian'); my @Paxson = $noise->Paxson(LENGTH => 30, HURST => 0.5, VARIANCE => 1.0, NOISE => 'Gaussian');

Math::Random::Brownian is a perl module for calculating a realization of either fractional Brownian Motion, or a fractional Gaussian sequence. This is accomplished using the various methods. Currently, the C code for this module is due to Ton Dieker with slight modifications by Walter Szeliga to help the code stand alone. For more information, refer to

Dieker, T. Simulation of fractional Brownian motion, Master's Thesis, University of Twente, Dept. of Mathematical Sciences.

Hash values and their meanings are as follows:

The length of the realization desired. This must be an integer.

The Hurst parameter of the output sequence. If A is the slope of a 1/f process, then A = 2H-1 where H is the Hurst parameter.

The variance of the output sequence.

Is equal to either 'Gaussian' or 'Brownian' depending on whether one would like fractional Gaussian noise, or it's cumulative sum -- fractional Brownian motion.
