pttstability: Particle-Takens Stability

Includes a collection of functions presented in "Measuring stability in ecological systems without static equilibria" by Clark et al. (2022) <doi:10.1002/ecs2.4328> in Ecosphere. These can be used to estimate the parameters of a stochastic state space model (i.e. a model where a time series is observed with error). The goal of this package is to estimate the variability around a deterministic process, both in terms of observation error - i.e. variability due to imperfect observations that does not influence system state - and in terms of process noise - i.e. stochastic variation in the actual state of the process. Unlike classical methods for estimating variability, this package does not necessarily assume that the deterministic state is fixed (i.e. a fixed-point equilibrium), meaning that variability around a dynamic trajectory can be estimated (e.g. stochastic fluctuations during predator-prey dynamics).
