CSE 6740 Lecture 19 How Do I Treat Temporal Data Time Series Analysis Alexander Gray agray cc gatech edu Georgia Institute of Technology l33 0 Time Series 9 Univariate Linear Methods 9 Extensions Time Series General concepts in time series analysis Time Series Time series are previous ones Parts of a Time Series Some sources of variation 0 Seasonalty For example unemployment is typically high in the winter and lower in summer 0 Trend A long term change in the mean level Example of a trend Xt mt 6t 1 where m 60 W 2 and at is zero mean noise Parts of a Time Series Seasonality can be modeled in different ways including Xt l mt l 5t l at additive Xt l mtSt l at multiplicative AA 4gtcu vv Xtmtstet multiplicative A 039 v Note that the third model can be made into the first one with a logarithmic transformation Stationarity A time series is said to be stationary roughly speaking if there is no systematic change in mean no trend or variance and if strictly periodic variations have been removed In other words the properties of one section of the data look much like that of any other section Actually only models are stationary not data Differencing Differencing is a pre processing operation which is effective for removing a trend It is performed on the time series X17 7XIV to obtain a new time series yg7 7yN by yt Xt 7 X1571 E th 6 Occasionally second order differencing is required szt th 7 VXt1 Xt 7 2Xt1 l X1372 7 A seasonal effect can be removed with seasonal differencing eg Vlgxt VXt 7 VX1571 8 Stochastic Process A stochastic process or random process is a sequence of random variables X17 Xt 7XIV ordered in time The mean function is defined by 0 EXt39 9 The variance function is defined by 02t Wm 10 The autocovariance function is defined by Whiz EXt1 MnXth MtgHv 11 which generalizes the variance function when t1 7 t2 Stationary Process A time series is said to be strictly stationary if thejoint distribution of X17 7XIV is the same as thejoint distribution of X14r77 XNT for all t17 W and 739 In other words shifting the time origin by an amount 739 has no effect on the joint distributions which thus must depend only on the intervals between t17 tN 1033 Stationary Process Strict stationarity using the case N 1 also implies that the distribution of Xt is the same for all t or ut u and 02t 02 Using the case N 2 it also implies that 39yt1 t2 depends only on the lag 739 ie 39yt1 t2 39y739 If EXt u and CovXtXtT 39y739 we say the process is second order stationary or weakly stationary 1133 Univariate Linear Methods Some linear models for a single time series Purely Random Process A process is called a purely random process or White noise if it consists of a sequence of random variables Zr which are IID Suppose they are normally distributed with mean zero and variance 0 Then CovXtXtT 39y739 0 for 739 0 otherwise 0 1333 Random Walk Suppose that Zr is a process with mean u and variance 0 A process Xt is called a random walk if Xt Xt1 Zt 12 Starting the process with X1 Zl we have EXt to VXt to Since the mean and variance change with t the process is non stationary However note that first order differencing VXt X1 Xtil Zt forms a purely random process making it stationary 1433 Moving Average Process Suppose that Z is a purely random process with mean zero and variance 0 A process Xt is called a moving average process of order q MAq process if Xt ozt Blztil Bthsq 14 This process is weakly stationary 1533 Autoregressive Process Suppose that Zr is a purely random process with mean zero and variance 0 A process Xt is called an autoregressive process of order p ARp process if Xt alx apXH Zr 15 The auto refers to the fact that the prediction is based on past values of Xt 16 33 AR i rMA Let39s look at the AR1 process or Markov process Xt oth1 Z 16 By successive substitution we have X1 0404Xt2 Z1571 Z1 04204Xt73 Zt72 Olztil Zt 18 Zt aZt1 63th 19 v provided 71lt 04 lt 1 so that the sum converges In general there is a duality between AR and MA processes ie each process can be written as the other 1733 ARMA Process A mixed autoregressivemoving average process containing p AR terms and q MA terms is said to be an ARMA process of order p q Xt a1XH apXH Zt le qz r 20 It turns out that a stationary time series can often be adequately modelled by an ARMA model with fewer parameters than a pure AR or MA process alone 1833 ARIMA Process The integrated ARMA process accounts for non stationarity by differencing first Replacing Xt by Wt VdXt we obtain an ARIMAp7 d7 q model Xt a1 WH apWH Zt nle qz r 21 The seasonal ARIMA SARIMA process includes seasonal differencing 1933 Continuous Time It is interesting to consider the continuoustime version of these models which turns out to be much less tractable mathematically Consider an AR1 process Xt ozXFl l Zt Then 17 04Xt onXt Zr 22 This has the continuous analog dXt dt aXt Zt 23 where Zt is continuous white noise which leads to the Langevin equation One interpretation of this analogy is that we are effectively learning differential equations 20 39 33 State Space Model We assume the data are obtained from a linear combination of some hidden state variables st plus noise Xt mtTSt 6t 24 where mt is considered to be known and 6t N0a We also assume we know how st changes in time st Atst1 l ct 25 where the matrix At is considered known and ct is multivariate normal with zero mean vector and known covariance matrix Ct This Markov model is called a state space model 2133 State Space Model It turns out many models can be represented in the state space model including all ARIMA models As an example consider the AR2 model Xt 041Xt71 OZZXt72 Zr By defining st Xt7 agXt1 we have Xt 17 0st with In 10 and a 0 and Oz 1 l 5tlta 0gt5t71lt0gtzt 26 since 5171 Xt717Xt72 22 r 33 Kalman Filter In the usual formulation st is the unknown quantity to be estimated The Kalman filter or linear dynamical system is a way to estimate st when a new observation in the time series becomes available ie in an online fashion consisting of two stages prediction and correction Because it is online it can follow the movement of a system where the underlying model is evolving through time Suppose we39ve observed a univariate time series up to time t 71 and 71 is the best minimum MSE estimator for stsl up to this time Kalman Filter The prediction stage is concerned with forecasting st from data up to time t 71 to obtain a prediction Emil Atgtil 27 with covariance matrix Ptitil AtPtilAtT i Ct 28 When the new observation at time t Xt has been observed the estimator for st can then be corrected to account for this additional information 24 39 33 Kalman Filter At time t 71 the best forecast of Xt is given by mtht t1 so that the prediction error is et Xt 7 mtht t1 29 Using this error feedback we can update the various quantities by Et Etitq i Ktet 30 Pt Ptitil KtmtTPtitil 31 Kt PtitqmtmtTPtitAmt03 32 Kt is called the Kalman gain matrix Extensions Multivariate and nonlinear Linear Multivariate Formulations The univariate statespace model is easily generalized to the case where Xt is a vector by making mt a matrix and at a vector By simply using lagged variables past values we can construct the usual data matrix for D regression and use say standard linear regression Note that the machinery we have discussing is more general it can handle linear coefficients which change in time for example Linear Multivariate Formulations An AR model can easily use past values from other time series to predict values of the time series of interest We can also account for feedback between different time series by using simultaneous equations the natural extension to this setting is called vector ARMA VARMA Inspired by the idea that the relationship between two or more stocks might remain constant co integration models focus on finding stationary linear combinations of time series variables N nlinear Models A locally linear approximation to a nonlinear system can be obtained by a simple Taylor expansion derivation resulting in a nonlinear model called the extended Kalman filter Instead of propagating a single state mean and covariance we can propagate a set of possible states represented as points One variant using a few determistically chosen points is called unscented Kalman filtering An approach using many points to obtain a nonparametric ish approximation of the state density is called particle filtering It has been useful for cases where there are multiple modes for example due to spurious measurements 29 r 33 N nlinear Models A framework which allows parametric forms beyond linear models and Gaussians is called the generalized state space model Another viewpoint is that of graphical models which allow easy specification of many of the models we39ve discussed at some level Graphical models which are repeated over time such as Kalman filters and hidden Markov models are called dynamic Bayesian networks Piecewise linear modelling corresponding to different regimes of the time series is another way of achieving nonlinearity Mixtures of Kalman filters where regimes are defined by a discrete hidden Markov model like process or switching state space linear dynamical systems comprise one way to do this Threshold autoregressive models are another way 0 39 33 linear Models We can always generalize the linear AR model with some class of nonlinear functions from past values to the current value Various ways of making linear parameters change over time constitute overall nonlinear models In econometrics models which account for timevarying variance called quot 39v quot 39 quot hetero red fir models GARCH have been explored heavily 5133 Other Topics 0 Temporal crossvalidation h block

components K should we use We could say 7 that our model class is the set of all possible mixtures with a parameter K thrown in However this is no longer a finite number of parameters we ll consider this scenario nonparametric estimation separately 80 we usually consider parameter selection eg choosing 9 u 2 separately from model selection eg choosing K or choosing between two different kinds of distributions The extent to which these two processes should be different or the same is subtle and we will talk about this more L J CSE 6740 Lecture 5 p4439 Training and Testing targetclass training

estimators of the actual values of the errors Asymptotic arguments are generally not good enough to give us good finitesample estimates except possibly for very simple models such as linear regression For this we will turn to resampling methods Of course if we have a good way direct estimator of the test error we can use it for model selection We should when we can L J CSE 6740 Lecture 5 p11439

use a chunk of it to train a model and a chunk of it a validation set to estimate the test error of the model However it s never clear when we have enough data to be able to throw some away So we
