Introduction to Time Series Analysis using Matlab/R

Date: 17 April 2019 - 18 April 2019
Location: UFZ Leipzig, Germany

The course provides a practical introduction to time series analyses and covers three main topics:

1) Data preparation and visualization, dealing with data gaps and methods for interpolation.

2) Finding trends and periodicities using empirical mode decomposition; methods for noise reduction and auto correlation analysis.

3) Methods for comparing two or more time series with respect to similarities, asynchronism, distance measures.

Didactic Aims

Understand what are time series, stationarity, Fourier transform, distance matrices. Perform data interpolation, empirical mode decomposition, cross-correlation, time series clustering, and dynamic time warping.

Target Group

  • Doctoral Researchers
  • Postdocs & Senior Scientists

Required Prior Knowledge

Must already have a working knowledge of Matlab or R (e.g. read/write data, work with matrices).
