The problem of partitioning time-series into segments is treated. The segments are considered as falling into classes. A different probability distribution is associated with each class of segment. Parametric families of distribution are considered, a set of parameter values being associated with each class. With each observation is associated an unobservable label, indicating from which class the observation arose. The label process is modeled as a Markov chain. Segmentation algorithms are obtained by applying a relaxation method to maximize the resulting likelihood function.
