# 26 Time Series Analysis and Forecasting

## 26.1 Forecasting: Principles and Practice

Rob J Hyndman and George Athanasopoulos

This textbook is intended to provide a comprehensive introduction to forecasting methods and to present enough information about each method for readers to be able to use them sensibly.

The book is written for three audiences: (1) people finding themselves doing forecasting in business when they may not have had any formal training in the area; (2) undergraduate students studying business; (3) MBA students doing a forecasting elective.

## 26.2 Time Series Analysis and Its Applications

Robert H. Shumway and David S. Stoffer

The book is designed as a textbook for graduate level students in the physical, biological, and social sciences and as a graduate level text in statistics. Some parts may also serve as an undergraduate introductory course. Theory and methodology are separated to allow presentations on different levels. In addition to coverage of classical methods of time series regression, ARIMA models, spectral analysis and state-space models, the text includes modern developments including categorical time series analysis, multivariate spectral methods, long memory series, nonlinear models, resampling techniques, GARCH models, ARMAX models, stochastic volatility, wavelets, and Markov chain Monte Carlo integration methods.

## 26.3 Hands-On Time Series Analysis with R

Rami Krispin

The book provides an introduction for time series analysis with R. It covers the general workflow of time series analysis - working and handling time series data, descriptive analysis, predictive analysis, modeling strategies, etc.

This book is designed for data scientists who wish to learn time series analysis and forecasting or data analysts who use Excel-based forecasting methods and wish to use more robust methods.

## 26.5 Time Series - A Data Analysis Approach Using R

Robert H. Shumway and David S. Stoffer

The goals of this text are to develop the skills and an appreciation for the richness and versatility of modern time series analysis as a tool for analyzing dependent data. A useful feature of the presentation is the inclusion of nontrivial data sets illustrating the richness of potential applications to problems in the biological, physical, and social sciences as well as medicine. The text presents a balanced and comprehensive treatment of both time and frequency domain methods with an emphasis on data analysis.

## 26.6 Applied Time Series Analysis for Fisheries and Environmental Sciences

E. E. Holmes, M. D. Scheuerell, and E. J. Ward

This is material that was developed as part of a course we teach at the University of Washington on applied time series analysis for fisheries and environmental data.

## 26.7 Fisheries Catch Forecasting

Elizabeth Holmes

The focus of this book is on analysis of univariate time series. However multivariate regression with autocorrelated errors and multivariate autoregressive models (MAR) will be covered more briefly. For an indepth discussion of multivariate autoregressive models and multivariate autoregressive state-space models, see Holmes, Ward and Scheuerell (2018).
