Are there any good statistical non-parametric forecasting methods besides machine learning methods like neural networks/decision trees etc. for time series analysis ?
If so, are there any R packages ...

I have read from several sources, even in my undergrad courses, that parametric tests require the data to have a certain distribution, for instance normal, whilst non-parametric don't.
I have ...

Firstly:
I created to sequences:library Rssa

There ...

There are several tests for randomness, one is runs up and down, another is run against mean or some other values, of cause, Bartel's rank test can also be used.
There are studies shows where Bartel'...

I have five numeric variables of two populations (each of them with 60 individuals) and for each of those five variables I want to know if there is difference in the means.
I was trying to use a ...

guys.
I wanted to assess whether there is a significant difference between the means of three independent groups or not, but I cannnot use t test for them because the sample sizes are vastly different....

I want to run series of simple lm in R, with a continuous/categorical outcome and binary group membership (patients - controls) and categorical predictors.
However the categorical predictor is ...

So, I have a very vexing theoretical question that I hope some experienced econometricians can help me with. Being in finance, I have recently been exposed to linear factor models, which are models ...

is it possible to simulate data, that follow:
$Y_i = \sum_{j \neq i} w(i,j)\cdot Y_j +\epsilon_j $
So that $Y_i$ is a weighted average of all other $Y$'s?
I'm thinking about this for a few days and ...

My study is related to the visual attractiveness of route-plans in a logistics context. In practice, route-plans are rejected based on the fact that they "do not look nice". I have conducted an ...

Apparently one can obtain a regression analysis as

where
$$f(x)=\int f(y,x)dy$$
is the marginal density of $X_i$. In effect, I believe, the above expression ...

Here a boxplot
As you can see the variance ...

There's many good ways to learn a distribution $p_X$ of an r.v. $X$ over $k$ symbols given many i.i.d. samples $X_1,\ldots, X_n$. The simplest is to use the sample relative frequencies $\hat{f}_X$ as ...

I want to know if contaminant (micrograms per liter) is related to river and/or time, thus my ...

I am looking at extremely non linear data for which the ARMA/ARIMA models do not work well. Though, I see some autocorrelation, and I suspect to have better results for non linear autocorrelation.
