Short bursts of repeating patterns [intervals of recurrence (IoR)] manifest themselves in many applications, such as in the time-series data captured from an athlete's movements using a wearable sensor while performing exercises. We present an efficient, online, one-pass, and real-time algorithm for finding and tracking IoR in a time-series data stream. We provide a detailed theoretical analysis of the behavior of any IoR and derive fundamental properties that can be used on real-world data streams. We show that why our method, unlike current state-of-the-art techniques, is robust to variations in repeats of the same pattern adjacent to each other. To evaluate our algorithm, we build a weara..
