Beginning of lectures: Monday, 02/20/2012.

Attendance certificate conditions: None.


Here is a link to the exercises.


The course starts with an introduction to time series analysis that comprises of purpose, examples and goals. We continue with some fundamental mathematical concepts, then discuss how time series are handled in the statistical software package R and present descriptive techniques for time series analysis. A major part of the course will be dedicated to modeling stationary time series using the flexible class of ARMA models. We will then turn our attention to the task of forecasting with time series, which also involves regression approaches and exponential smoothing. Finally, we lay focus on some more advanced topics such as multivariate time series analysis, spectral analysis and state space models.
