## Module content and teaching

###### Principal aims

This course is concerned with the theory and practice of short-term forecasting, using both data and subjective information. The course focuses on Dynamic Linear Models (DLM). DLMâ€™s are a class of Bayesian Forecasting Models which generalise linear regression models and static statistical linear models.

###### Principal learning outcomes

The course offers a very powerful fundamental probabilistic approach to forecasting, controlling and learning about uncertain commercial, financial, economic, production, enviromental and medical dynamic systems.

###### Timetabled teaching activities

3 lectures per week.
