Surrogate Data Test on Time Series [chapter]

D. Kugiumtzis
2002 Modelling and Forecasting Financial Data  
Given a real random-like time series, the first question to answer is whether the data carry any information over time, i.e. whether the successive samples are correlated.  ...  A statistically rigorous framework for such tests is provided by the method of surrogate data.  ...  Accordingly, failure to reject the null hypothesis of a linear stochastic model for a given time series invalidates any nonlinear modelling and prediction on this time series.  ...

Introduction to modeling and simulation

John Carson
2009 IEEE Engineering Management Review  
In concept, a model's state is a (long) vector, that is, a list of values that are sufficient to define the state of the system at any point in time.  ...  Conducting a valid simulation is both an art and a science. This paper provides an introduction to simulation and modeling and the main concepts underlying simulation.  ...  In addition, the author has benefited from many discussions with Jerry Banks on these and related topics.  ...

Guidelines for benchmarking of optimization-based approaches for fitting mathematical models

Clemens Kreutz
2019 Genome Biology  
Insufficient performance of optimization-based approaches for the fitting of mathematical models is still a major bottleneck in systems biology.  ...  Based on general guidelines for benchmarking in computational biology, a collection of tailored guidelines is presented for performing informative and unbiased benchmarking of optimization-based fitting  ...  The reason for this is that realistic combinations of sampling times, observables, observation functions, error models, and experimental conditions have to be defined because this has a great impact on  ...
