Anatoly Zhigljavsky (School of Mathematics, Cardiff University, Cardiff, United Kingdom)


In this introduction we briefly describe the methodology of the Singular Spectrum Analysis (SSA), some versions and extensions of the basic version of SSA as well as connections between SSA and subspace-based methods in signal processing. We also briefly touch upon some history of SSA and mention some areas of application of SSA.
