Methods of functional outliers detection in functional setting have been discussed, i.e. shape outliers and magnitude outliers. Outliergram has been discussed, a tool for functional shape outliers detection. Robust adjusted functional boxplot has been discussed as well, a tool for functional magnitude outliers detection. „The elements of functional outliers analysis have been applied to air pollution data for Katowice and Kraków.”
