The group fused Lasso for signal segmentation is a fast and scalable method to automatically segment a multidimensional signal into regions where the signal is approximatively constant. It is particularly useful to find common breakpoints in a series of DNA copy number profiles, for example.

Getting started

To use GFLseg you need MATLAB. Donwload the latest version of GFLseg (link above), untar it and read the README file for information on how to install it.

If you have a p-dimensional signal of length n in a n*p matrix Y, the simplest way to use GFLseg is to type at the MATLAB prompt:
>> segmentation = simpleGFL(Y)

To explore more possibilities, read the README file and run the various demonstration scripts in the 'demo/' folder.
