There's a lot of literature on the detection of change-points. Roughly, a
change-point can be a step change-point (eg., switching from one mean to
another, as you observe in your data), or a trend change-points (the slope of
a linear model changes at some point), or both.

Well, first you need to define what an outlier is in your problem: assuming
normal data, how far away from the mean should a point be to be an outlier ?
1,2, 3 standard deviation ? What if your data is not normal ? In that case,
robust methods can give good result.
