  • $\begingroup$ @Zev: I am also not familiar with this topic, but it is evident from the content of the linked document entitled "An Introduction to Change-Point Detection" (the .ps file) that, indeed, it would be appropriate to migrate this question to stats.SE. $\endgroup$ – Shai Covo Jun 26 '11 at 7:56
