Recurrence Quantification Analysis Of Financial Market Crashes And Crises
Financial markets are systems with the complex behavior that can be hardly analyzed by means of linear methods. Recurrence Quantification Analysis (RQA) is a nonlinear methodology, which is able to work with the nonstationary and short data series. Thus, the authors apply RQA for the studying of the critical events on financial markets.
