SUMMER SCHOOL OF MATHEMATICS FOR ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL SCIENCES. Mathematical Methods for Time Series Analysis

Monday, September 10, 2018 (All day) to Friday, September 14, 2018 (All day)

The course has an introductory part on Stationary Stochastic Processes, including the Wold decomposition and the Spectral representation . The second part deals with Dynamic Factor Models both in the time and the frequency domain.

The “Summer School of Mathematics for Economic and Social Sciences” aims to improve the knowledge of mathematical methods among graduate students in economics and social sciences, with a focus on those techniques which albeit widespread in use are not properly covered in typical graduate programs. The School is an interdisciplinary venue intended to foster the interaction of people coming from the too often separated communities of mathematical and social scientists.
