We survey and extend results on a recently defined character on the quasi-shuffle algebra. This character, termed iterated-sums signature, appears in the context of time series analysis and originates from a problem in dynamic time warping. Algebraically, it relates to (multidimensional) quasisymmetric functions as well as (deformed) quasi-shuffle algebras.
