Addressed topics include the rendering of state and event sequences, longitudinal characteristics of sequences, measuring pairwise dissimilarities and dissimilarity-based analysis of sequence data such as clustering, representative sequences, and regression trees. The tutorial also provides a short introduction to the practice of sequence analysis with the TraMineR R-package.
