Abstract: Symbolic sequences occur in many contexts and can be characterized e.g. by integer-valued intersymbol distances or binary-valued indicator sequences. Therefore, the analysis of these numerical sequences often sheds light on the properties of the original symbolic sequences. This talk introduces new statistical tools to explore the autocorrelation structure in indicator sequences and to evaluate its impact on the probability distribution of intersymbol distances [Gouveia et al, 2017]. The methods are illustrated with data extracted from mitochondrial DNA sequences. (http://spe2017.iscte-iul.pt/)
