The following example calculates the variance values of a multivariate timeseries
object. MATLAB^{®} calculates
the variance independently for each data column in the timeseries
object.
Load a 24

data array.
Then create a timeseries object with 24 time values.
load count.dat count_ts = timeseries(count,[1:24],'Name','CountPerSecond');
Calculate the variance of each data column.
var(count_ts)
MATLAB returns:
1.0e+03 * 0.6437 1.7144 4.6278
MATLAB determines weighting by:
Attaching a weighting to each time value, depending on its order, as follows:
First time point — The duration of the first
time interval (t(2)  t(1))
.
Time point that is neither the first nor last time
point — The duration between the midpoint of the previous time
interval to the midpoint of the subsequent time interval ((t(k
+ 1)  t(k))/2 + (t(k)  t(k  1))/2)
.
Last time point — The duration of the last
time interval (t(end)  t(end  1))
.
Normalizing the weighting for each time by dividing each weighting by the mean of all weightings.
Note:
If the 
Multiplying the data for each time by its normalized weighting.
