Learning outcomes of the course unit:
On completion of this course students will acquire knowledge of current methods of time series analysis, their decomposition by means of multidimensional regression, autocorrelation analysis, time series forecasting, model identification methodology, parameter estimates, model verification, and spectral analysis of one- and multi-dimensional time series. After the course completion a student should be able to analyze real time series, build their linear models and use them for description and prediction.
Prerequisites and co-requisites: passed Statistical methods
Course contents:
- Introduction to time series analysis.
- Decomposition of time series using multivariate regression.
- Autocorrelation analysis.
- Spectral anlysis. Application of spectral analysis in one- and multi-dimensional time series analysis.
- Box - Jenkins methodology: model identification (AR, MA, ARMA, ARIMA, SARIMA), parameters estimation, model checking.
- New models in Box - Jenkins methodology (ARCH, GARCH).
- Time series prediction.
