It is advisable to have knowledge on probability, statistical inference.

This course aims to introduce students to time series models and their applications. A time series is a set of observations of a random phenomenon evolving over time (or any other ordered magnitude). Time series appear in many fields of application. Therefore, their analysis and the modelling of the underlying random phenomena are of crucial theoretical and applied importance. The ultimate goal is the modelling of the mechanism that generates the data, performing model diagnostics, and predicting future values.

- CM09 (Competence) Assess the suitability of the models with the correct use and interpretation of indicators and graphs.
- CM09 (Competence) Assess the suitability of the models with the correct use and interpretation of indicators and graphs.
- CM10 (Competence) Modify the existing software if required by the statistic model, or create new software, if necessary.
- KM12 (Knowledge) Provide the experimental hypotheses of modelling, considering the technical and ethical implications involved.
- KM12 (Knowledge) Provide the experimental hypotheses of modelling, considering the technical and ethical implications involved.
- KM14 (Knowledge) Identify models to make inferences in processes dependent of time or other ordered variables.
- KM14 (Knowledge) Identify models to make inferences in processes dependent of time or other ordered variables.

- SM13 (Skill) Compare the degree of adjustment between diverse statistical models.
- SM14 (Skill) Use graphs to visualise the fit and suitability of the model.

Type: Directed | |||

Practical sessions | 26 | 1.04 | |

Theoretical sessions | 26 | 1.04 | |

Type: Autonomous | |||

Personal work | 60 | 2.4 | |

Real data analysis | 25 | 1 |

During the theoretical lessons (2 H/week) the fundamental results will be presented, and computer exercises will be developed. During the lab hours (with laptop) students will solve real data problems. The programing language used is R.

**Annotation**: Within the schedule set by the centre or degree programme, 15 minutes of one class will be reserved for students to evaluate their lecturers and their courses or modules through questionnaires.

Title | Weighting | Hours | ECTS | Learning Outcomes |
---|---|---|---|---|

Final Exam | 0,4 | 3 | 0.12 | CM09, KM12, KM14, SM11, SM12, SM13, SM14 |

Homework (exercises and computer activities) | 0,3 | 8 | 0.32 | CM09, CM10, KM12, KM14, SM11, SM12, SM13, SM14 |

Mid-term exam | 0,3 | 2 | 0.08 | CM09, KM12, KM14, SM11, SM12, SM13, SM14 |

The subject will be assessed with assignments (exercise assignments, problem checks and/or practicals) and 2 exams. To obtain the weighted grade of continuous assessment you must have a minimum of 3/10 in each of the parts.

Students who have opted for the single assessment modality will have to complete an assessment that will consist of a theory exam, a problem test and the delivery of the first and last practical reports of the course. Assessment of submissions may require an assessment interview with the teacher. The student's grade will be the weighted average of the three previous activities, where the exam will account for 45% of the grade, the test 45% and the assignments 10%.

If the final grade does not reach 5/10, the student has another opportunity to pass the subject through the remedial exam that will be held on the date set by the degree coordinator. In this test you can recover 70% of the grade corresponding to the theory and the problems. The part of internships is not refundable.
