Since the deterministic chaos appeared in the literature, we have observed a huge increase in interest in nonlinear dynamic systems theory among researchers, which has led to the creation of new methods of time series prediction, e.g. the largest Lyapunov exponent method and the nearest neighbor method. Real time series are usually disturbed by random noise, which can complicate the problem of forecasting of time series. Since the presence of noise in the data can significantly affect the
