720—Time Series Analysis. (3) (Prereq: STAT 704 and 512) Stochastic properties, identification, estimation, and forecasting methods for stationary and nonstationary time series models.
Usually Offered: Odd Numbered Springs
Purpose: To acquaint graduate students from various disciplines with a firm understanding of the ARIMA(p,d,q) class of models and to use this information to fit appropriate models to real data and forecast if desired; to familiarize students with the frequency domain approach including the definition, interpretation and estimation of the spectral density.
