Optimising time series forecasts through linear programming
Panagiotopoulos, Apostolos (2012) Optimising time series forecasts through linear programming. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This study explores the usage of linear programming (LP) as a tool to optimise the parameters of time series forecasting models. LP is the most well-known tool in the field of operational research and it has been used for a wide range of optimisation problems. Nonetheless, there are very few applications in forecasting and all of them are limited to causal modelling. The rationale behind this study is that time series forecasting problems can be treated as optimisation problems, where the objective is to minimise the forecasting error.
