# What is sequential change point detection?

Could someone point me to an introductory-level explanation (think Wikipedia entry) of what sequential change point detection is?

• Maybe this can help: research.ibm.com/PM/sigt98.ps and www-bcf.usc.edu/~liu32/cs599/Time_series.pdf

• @Shai: I'm not familiar with this topic, so I'd like to ask your advice: do you think it would be appropriate to migrate this question to stats.SE?

• @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.
