Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Formulation and solution of real problems in the field of time series modelling. Acquiring fundamental knowledge about different types of non-linear time series models. After the course completion a student will be able to use a statistical test to determine, whether a linear or a non-linear model is more suitable for a given time series, and in the case of non-linear model to choose from the class of non-linear regime-switching models, and finally he will be able to apply the knowledge for time series description and prediction.

Course contents:
- Tests for linearity/nonlinearity of time series
- Nonlinear models of time series of type TAR (Threshold AutoRegressive), STAR types (Self-Exciting Transition Autoregressive, Smooth Transition Autoregressive) and MSW-AR (Markov Switching AutoRegressive).
- Selection of an appropriate type of nonlinear model for a given time series, parameter estimation and tests of appropriateness.
- Applications of nonlinear time series models for the description and forecasting future values of the series.
