Course objectives
The course offers a coverage of selected advanced methods and models for time series. The course covers theoretical foundations, statistical models and inference, software implementation, application and interpretation.
Learning outcomes
The students will gain a deeper understanding of the methods and their relations and learn to recognize situations that can be addressed by the models discussed in the course, choose an appropriate model, implement it and interpret the results.
  • Multivariate time series: basic characteristics (cross-covariance function) and inference for them, regression between time series, spurious regression and prewhitening, cointegration, unit root tests and cointegration tests.
  • Vector autoregressive models: stationarity, cross-correlation, parameter estimation, prediction, Granger causality, cointegration in VAR models.
  • State-space models: properties, Kalman filter, likelihood, missing data, Kalman smoother, dynamic linear models.
  • Spectral analysis of time series: spectral decomposition of an autocovariance function, spectral density, spectral representation of a stationary process, spectral density of linear filters and ARMA processes, periodogram, estimation of a spectral density (kernel estimation, AR estimation), multivariate spectral analysis.
  • Special models: GARCH models, fractional ARIMA models and other models.

Assessment methods
Bonus midterm written exam (score B between 0 and 100).
Final written exam (score F between 0 and 100).
Total score T is defined as 0.75*F + 0.25*max(F,B) rounded to the nearest integer.
Score-to-grade conversion: A for T in [91,100], B for T in [81,90], C for T in [71,80], D for T in [61,70], E for T in [51,60], F for T in [0,50].
Language of instruction
Further comments (probably available only in Czech)
Study Materials
The course is taught annually.
Teacher's information
The lessons are usually in Czech or in English as needed, and the relevant terminology is always given with English equivalents.

The target skills of the study include the ability to use the English language passively and actively in their own expertise and also in potential areas of application of mathematics.

Assessment in all cases may be in Czech and English, at the student's choice.
