Course objectives
The course offers a comprehensive coverage of selected fundamental 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.
  • Properties and characteristics of random processes and time series: distribution, strict and weak stationarity, expectation, autocovariance and autocorrelation function.
  • Estimation of characteristics of stationary time series and statistical inference about them.
  • Modelling of deterministic components (trend, seasonality) using regression, smoothing and decomposition techniques.
  • Principles of prediction, algorithms.
  • Simple prediction methods: exponential smoothing, Holt and Holt--Winters method.
  • Modelling of stationary time series by ARMA models: properties of ARMA models (causality, invertibility), correlation structure of ARMA processes (autocorrelation, partial autocorrelation), prediction in ARMA models (best linear prediction, algorithms, prediction uncertainty and intervals), estimation of parameters of ARMA models (simple methods, maximum likelihood, properties of estimators).
  • Extension of ARMA models to seasonal series and nonstationary series with unit roots (SARIMA models).
  • Model building and diagnostics.

Assessment methods
  • Satisfactory oral presentation of the practical project at the exercise session.
  • Bonus (non-mandatory) 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].
  • Depending on the epidemiological situation, these requirements will be fulfilled in person or online and may be subject to change.
