Basic Examples  (2)

By default, regularity is determined from the data:

Explicitly assume regularity:

Treat a time series as regularly spaced:

The dates are spaced by business day:

TimeSeries does not detect regularity:

Assume the series is regular:

Scope  (1)

It is sometimes possible to achieve regularity by specifying the times as {tmin,tmax,dt}:

The dates are spaced by business day:

The paths are equivalent:

Explicitly assume regularity:

The path remains unchanged:
