In this thesis, we propose a Bayesian methodology based on sampling importance re-sampling for asymmetric and bimodal circular data analysis. We adopt Dirichlet process (DP) mixture model approach to analyse multi-modal circular data where the number of components is not known. For the analysis of temporal circular data, such as hourly measured wind directions, we join DP mixture model approach with circular times series modelling. The approaches are illustrated with both simulated and real life data sets. Our Bayesian methodologies have been shown to have good statistical properties in multi-modal circular data analysis. Computational codes for DP mixture models are constructed in OpenBUGS and R.

Consensus clustering of time series data

In this study, we aim to develop a methodology that merges Dynamic Time Warping (DTW) and consensus clustering in a single algorithm. Mostly used time series distance measures require data to be of the same length and measure the distance between time series data mostly depends on the similarity of each coinciding data pair in time. DTW is a relatively new measure used to compare two time dependent sequences which may be out of phase or may not have the same lengths or frequencies. DTW aligns two time serie...
Time series classification with feature covariance matrices
Ergezer, Hamza; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (2018-06-01)
In this work, a novel approach utilizing feature covariance matrices is proposed for time series classification. In order to adapt the feature covariance matrices into time series classification problem, a feature vector is defined for each point in a time series. The feature vector comprises local and global information such as value, derivative, rank, deviation from the mean, the time index of the point and cumulative sum up to the point. Extracted feature vectors for the time instances are concatenated t...
Bayesian Networks in Project Management
Yet, Barbaros (2017-01-01)
Bayesian networks (BNs) offer unique benefits for combining data and expert knowledge to model complex joint probability distributions. Recent advances in inference algorithms enabled efficient computation of BNs with both discrete and continuous variables that are also called hybrid BNs. Consequently, BNs have been widely used as risk assessment and decision support tools in various domains including project management. This article illustrates the use of BNs in different aspects of project management and ...
Performance of ensemble forecasting tools for analysis Turkish consumer price index

Major challenge in time series analysis is to get reasonably accurate forecasts of the future data from the analysis of the previous records. Accurate forecasting of inflation has great importance in the market economies, the policymakers and the monetary system since the inflation rate determines the cost and standard of living. Also, it affects the decision on investments. In Turkey, the inflation rate is measured by the consumer price index (CPI). There exist many methods to predict the future values of ...

Deep learning is a fast-growing and interesting field due to the need to represent statistical data in a more complex and abstract way. Development in the processors and graphics processing unit technology effects undeniably that the deep networks get that popularity. The main purpose of this work is to develop robust and full functional time series classification method. To achieve this intent a deep learning based novel methods are proposed. Because time series data can have complex and variable structure...
