They are ordered so that according to my estimates the difficulty rises with the number. This is because typecasting and implicit typing (which is included in most of the FORTRAN files in the TISEAN library) can be problematic sometimes.

Totaling up the above estimates it should take me 6 weeks to complete my task as outlined above. I do think my time estimates are rather conservative, but I would rather work on other programs (the documentation contains another article located [http://www.mpipks-dresden.mpg.de/~tisean/Tisean_3.0.1/docs/surropaper/Surrogates.html| here]) than to be overwhelmed with the work and try to rush trough. As I am not fully familiar with the mathematical concepts discussed within these articles I want to make sure that I reduce the possibility of error when linking programs to octave to a minimum. If I vastly overestimated the time I will need to port those functions I intend to finish the 'Visualization, non-stationary' section of the work on nonlinear timeseries and then proceed to programs from the 'Surrogate time series article'.
