Detecting Outliers in Bilinear Time Series Model

16.11.2009
Ibrahim bin Mohamed of the Faculty of Information Technology and Quantitative Sciences, UiTM, Malaysia researched to detect Outliers in Bilinear Time Series Model.

He studied how to build models and detect outliers in BL (l,l,l,l) models in time-domain framework. In the model building, the Box-Jenkins approach was closely followed. In the identification stage, time-domain based nonlinearity tests were considered to distinguish nonlinearity data set from linear time series data.

In general, identifying the order of bilinear model including BL(l,l,l,l) model is not possible yet due to the complexity of form taken by the moments of bilinear model. In the estimation stage, the nonlinear least squares method were used to estimate the parameters of BL(l,l,l,l) models. In the diagnostic stage, the residuals were examined to check the adequacy of model. In addition, the Akaike's information criteria, the Akaike's Bayesian information criteria and Schwarz's criterion were used for model companson purposes.

Outliers exist due to many possibilities such as misrecording, disaster or
changes of nature. The occurrence of four types of outliers; the additive outlier (AO), innovational outlier (10), level change (LC) and temporary change (TC), in data from BL(l,l,l,l) models were considered in the study. Their features were studied so that different patterns caused by each type of outliers were distinguishable.

Further, the measures of outlier effect for AO, 10, LC and TC were derived using the least squares method. Their variances were obtained using bootstrap method. The detection of outliers was carried out by examining the maximum value of the standardized statistics of the outlier effects.

The outlier detection procedure for identifying the type of outlier at time point t was proposed. Simulation studies were carried out to study the performance of the procedure in BL (l,l,l,l) models. It was found out that, in general, the proposed procedure performed well in detecting outliers. As for illustration, the proposed procedure was applied on three hydrological data.

Im Focus: Optical Nanoscope Allows Imaging of Quantum Dots

Physicists have developed a technique based on optical microscopy that can be used to create images of atoms on the nanoscale. In particular, the new method allows the imaging of quantum dots in a semiconductor chip. Together with colleagues from the University of Bochum, scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute reported the findings in the journal Nature Photonics.

Microscopes allow us to see structures that are otherwise invisible to the human eye. However, conventional optical microscopes cannot be used to image...

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.
