WARNING: THIS OUTLINE IS NOT YET UPDATED. This course is intended to survey both time-domain and frequency domain analysis of time series. I expect you all to be familiar with the basics of the multivariate normal distribution and complex arithmetic. I will develop Fourier methods briefly where necessary.
There will be 2 two hour lectures per week. I will actually lecture for 100 minutes then have open discussion.
I hope my notes together with references will be reasonably self-contained so that possession of the text not precisely necessary.

The course will be graded on the basis of assignments together with a take home final exam. You will do a good deal of computing in R or S using the package on the stat Unix/Linux network. I will expect you to produce software in R or S; except for a few introductory comments in the first or second week I will expect you to learn this package on your own.
