Individual assignment (Exploration and Presentation)

Question – Decision Support Systems, Fundamentals & Application

This assignment requires a critical review of two popular methods used to analyze a time series, namely Fourier transform and Wavelet transform.

The review will be three A4 pages maximum, excluding the cover page and references. It should contain the answers of the following questions:

  • What is the main methodology of each method in analysing a time series?
  • What types of time series are particularly appropriate for amethod?
  • Why?
  • How the methods are developed to analyzetimeseries?

Marking Criteria

Since the elements above are wide ranging, general criteria are given that are applied as a percentage to each component of the portfolio. In the following, ‘writing’ is understood to apply both to coding and English.
