This course introduces students to the basic knowledge and tools needed for the statistical analysis of time series data. The course is a mixture of lectures and exercises in the computer lab together with the instructor, with a strong emphasis on learning by doing. After completing this course, students should be able to continue studying time series analysis at the level of a second-year graduate course or begin working with analysis of time series data for a company or government agency.

Deadline Term paper
Deadline for the Term paper submissions is to be announced later (May-June). The submission will be electronic only and made on Mondo. After the deadline no submission will be possible until the retake in the early fall.
