compute sample autocorrelations of a real Vector
discrete univariate real time series given as a Vector, list, DataSeries object, Matrix with one column, DataFrame with one column, or TimeSeries object with one dataset.
(optional) maximal lag to return, or a range of lags to return. By default all possible lags are returned.
One of biased, unbiased, or none. Default is none. scaling=biased computes Rk=Ckn. scaling=unbiased scales each Ck by 1n−k.
If this option is given, the output is not normalized so that the first entry is 1 when scaling=unbiased or scaling=none.
For a discrete time series X, the AutoCorrelation command computes the autocorrelations Rk=CkC0 where Ck=∑t=1n−k⁡Xt−μ⁢Xt+k−μ for k=0..n−1 and μ is the mean of X.
For efficiency, all of the lags are computed at once using a numerical discrete Fourier transform. Therefore all data provided must have type realcons and all returned solutions are floating-point, even if the problem is specified with exact values.
Note: AutoCorrelation makes use of DiscreteTransforms[FourierTransform] and thus will work strictly in hardware precision, that is, its accuracy is independent of the setting of Digits.

Autocorrelation can be used to create correlograms which are useful for detecting periodicity in signals.
