This paper proposes a method for applying the GeomCP algorithm proposed by Grundy et al. (2020) to high-dimensional time series data. The method is based on geometric transformation and utilizes the CUSUM statistic and Block Wild Bootstrap (BWB) for change point estimation. The GeomCP algorithm involves dimension reduction through geometric transformation and estimates change points using the PELT method. However, the PELT method tends to perform poorly on data with temporal dependence. Therefore, this study aims to propose a robust methodology for time series data with temporal dependence. The proposed methodology applies geometric transformation to reduce the computational burden for analyzing change points in high-dimensional multivariate time series data. Additionally, it utilizes the BWB method to enhance performance in finite samples. Through simulation experiments, the proposed methodologies generally demonstrate superior performance in terms of size and power, as well as good predictive performance. In empirical data analysis, the methods successfully detect change points in the stock price indices of major stocks corresponding to the KOSPI 100, reflecting real economic issues.
