High prediction accuracies at time series modeling and forecasting is of the utmost importance for a variety of application domains. Various time series prediction methods exist that use linear and nonlinear models separately or combination of both. These methods highly increase prediction performance results when they are applied on a many number of stationary components obtained by more sophisticated decomposition techniques. Although these stationary components are easily predictable, they each have different characteristics. In this study, we have developed a hybrid method that aims to increase prediction performance in time series considering these differences. The developed method decomposes given time series into many stationary components with two-level decomposition using Moving-average (MA) filter and the Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD) techniques. Then, the obtained components are modeled separately by appropriate methods according to the frequency changing rates calculated by fourier analysis. The evaluation of the developed method is performed on three different publicly available benchmark dataset and achieved highly successful results as compared to existing well-accepted hybrid methods.


A feature-based hybrid ARIMA-ANN model for univariate time series forecasting
Buyuksahin, Umit Cavus; Ertekin Bolelli, Şeyda (2020-01-01)
High prediction accuracies at time series modeling and forecasting is of the utmost importance for a variety of application domains. Many methods have been proposed in the literature to improve time series forecasting accuracy. Those which focus on univariate time series forecasting methods use only the values in the prior time steps to predict the next value. In this study in addition to the historical values, it is aimed to increase the forecasting performance by using extra statistical and structural fea...
Time Series Forecasting Using Empirical Mode Decomposition and Hybrid Method
Büyükşahin, Ümit Çavuş; Ertekin Bolelli, Şeyda (2018-07-09)
Recently, various applications produce large amount of time series data. In these domains, accurately forecasting time series has been getting important for decision makers. autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) as a linear method and Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) as a nonlinear method have been widely used to forecast time series. However, many theoretical and empirical studies showed that assembling of those two approaches in hybrid methods can be efficient to improve forecasting performanc...
Hybrid wavelet-neural network models for time series data
Kılıç, Deniz Kenan; Uğur, Ömür; Department of Financial Mathematics (2021-3-3)
The thesis aims to combine wavelet theory with nonlinear models, particularly neural networks, to find an appropriate time series model structure. Data like financial time series are nonstationary, noisy, and chaotic. Therefore using wavelet analysis helps better modeling in the sense of both frequency and time. S&P500 (∧GSPC) and NASDAQ (∧ IXIC) data are divided into several components by using multiresolution analysis (MRA). Subsequently, each part is modeled by using a suitable neural network structure. ...
Univariate time series prediction leveraging linear and nonlinear patterns
Büyükşahin, Ümit Çavuş; Ertekin Bolelli, Şeyda; Department of Computer Engineering (2020-9)
Making forecasts from time series data has become increasingly important with the increase of data collection capabilities.The forecasting in time series is mostly done in a univariate setting where historical data in the series itself is used for further time steps. Forecasting in univariate time series is a challenging task due to unpredictable variations in the historic data. The objective of this thesis is to develop prediction methods that exhibit better performance results by alleviating the chal...
Consensus clustering of time series data
Yetere Kurşun, Ayça; Batmaz, İnci; İyigün, Cem; Department of Scientific Computing (2014)
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...
