Recurrence plots are graphical devices specially suited to detect
hidden dynamical patterns and nonlinearities in data. However, there
are few programs available to apply such a mehodology. This paper
reviews one of the best free programs to apply nonlinear time series
analysis: Visual Recurrence Analysis (VRA). This program is targeted
to recurrence analysis and the so-called Recurrence Quantitative
Analysis (RQA, the quantitative counterpart of recurrence plots),
although it includes many procedures in a friendly visual environment.
Comparisons with alternative programs are performed.
