Detecting Outliers in Bilinear Time Series Model
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.

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.
At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
