Analysis of data ordered by the time the data were collected (usually spaced at equal intervals), called a time series. Common examples of a time series are daily temperature measurements, monthly sales, and yearly population figures. The goals of time series analysis are to describe the process generating the data, and to forecast future values.
One particular usage is heartbeat analysis (Castiglioni).
