Sequential Estimation and Control of Time-Varying Unit Root Processes with an Application to S&P Stock Price

Carlo Grillenzoni
2012 Sequential Analysis  
The optimal trading policy then coincides with the early detection of turning points in financial time series, i.e. the periods where the phases of expansion and recession begin.  ...  There were also important effects on the real side of economy, with the beginning of a downward phase for the business cycle.  ...  In econometrics, the identification of turning points usually proceeds by smoothing series with nonparametric filters and then applying the trend-cycle decomposition (e.g., Canova 2007) .  ...

Nonparametric Profile Monitoring by Mixed Effects Modeling

Peihua Qiu, Changliang Zou, Zhaojun Wang
2010 Technometrics  
Profile monitoring is for checking the stability of this relationship over time.  ...  In some applications, the quality of a process is characterized by the functional relationship between a response variable and one or more explanatory variables.  ...  On the other hand, other smoothing techniques such as the smoothing spline analysis of variance (ANOVA) models in Gu (2002) can handle multivariate estimation more conveniently.  ...

Modelling the dynamic pattern of surface area in basketball and its effects on team performance

Rodolfo Metulini, Marica Manisera, Paola Zuccolotto
2018 Journal of Quantitative Analysis in Sports (JQAS)  
Using a time series of basketball players' coordinates, we focus on the dynamics of the surface area of the five players on the court with a two-fold purpose: (i) to give tools allowing a detailed description  ...  Specifically, we first employ a Markov Switching Model (MSM) to detect structural changes in the surface area.  ...  It implies that the number of degradation processes in the system increases the speed of deterioration of the system.  ...

An environmental epigenetic study ofADRB25′-UTR methylation and childhood asthma severity

A. Fu, B. P. Leaderer, J. F. Gent, D. Leaderer, Y. Zhu
2012 Clinical and Experimental Allergy  
Methods-We compared ADRB2 5'-UTR methylation levels in blood between 60 children with mild asthma and 122 children with severe asthma using methylation-specific PCR.  ...  Conclusions and Clinical Relevance-These findings support the potential use of ADRB2 5'-UTR methylation as a biomarker of both asthma severity and risk for NO 2 -associated asthma exacerbations in children  ...  Furthermore, studies of the effect of the use of the short-acting β 2 -agonist albuterol as monotherapy have shown that asthma control may deteriorate over time with regular use as opposed to intermittent  ...

Forecasting industrial production and the early detection of turning points

Giancarlo Bruno, Claudio Lupi
2004 Empirical Economics  
We show how the use of these forecasts can improve the estimate of a cyclical indicator and the early detection of turning points for the manufacturing sector.  ...  In this paper we propose a simple model to forecast industrial production in Italy up to 6 months ahead.  ...  This allows us also to improve substantially on the timely detection of turning points in the level of manufacturing activity. We actually think that this is a major result of this paper.  ...
