Functions to quantify multivariate synchrony
Important announcement - There is a new version of multiSyncPy (0.1.0) that includes a new multivariate synchronization measures as well as some visualiation functions.
multiSyncPy is a Python package for quantifying multivariate synchrony. Our package supports the burgeoning field of research into synchrony, making accessible a set of methods for studying group-level rather than dyadic constructs of synchrony and/or coordination. We offer a range of metrics for estimating multivariate synchrony based on a collection of those used in recent literature.
The main methods of this package are functions to calculate:
multidimensional recurrence quantification,
coherence (and a related ‘sum-normalized CSD’ metric),
the cluster-phase ‘Rho’ metric
the synchronization coefficient metric,
a statistical test based on the Kuramoto order parameter, and
driver-empath model with synchrony index
We also include functions for two surrogation techniques to compare the observed coordination dynamics with chance levels.
Additionally, we include a set of functions to visualize the time-varying coordination metrics as well as the individual or pair-wise contributions to the multivariate measure (depending on the particular method).
multiSyncPy is freely available under the LGPL license. The source code is maintained at <https://github.com/cslab-hub/multiSyncPy>, which also includes examples of usage of the package. Documentation can be accessed through help() or accessed at <https://cslab-hub.github.io/multiSyncPy/>.
Further details of the package and case studies of its use on real-world data are described in our paper.
