Summary

We started this chapter by discussing advanced data processing techniques such as resampling, group-by, and moving window computations to obtain aggregate statistics from a time series. Next, we described stationary time series and discussed statistical tests of hypothesis such as Ljung-Box test and Augmented Dickey Fuller test to verify stationarity of a time series. Stationarizing non-stationary time series is important for time series forecasting. Therefore, we discussed two different approaches of stationarizing time series. Firstly, the method of differencing, which covers first, second, and seasonal differencing, has been described for stationarizing a non-stationary time series. Secondly, time series decomposition using the ...
