## What is TSLM in R?

The tslm function is designed to fit linear models to time series data. It is intended to approximately mimic lm (and calls lm to do the estimation), but to package the output to remember the ts attributes. It also handles some predictor variables automatically, notably trend and season .

**How do I use Tbats in R?**

What is TBATS model in time series in R How to use it

- Step 1 – Install required package. install.packages(‘forecast’) library(forecast)
- Step 2 – Generate random time series data.
- Step 3 – Plot a trend line.
- Step 4 – Build a model using tbats()
- Step 5 – Make predictions with the model.

**What is Fourier regression?**

ABSTRACT: Fourier regression is a method used to represent time series by a set of elementary functions called basis. This work was used to propose a new procedure for Fourier regression which has the ability to reveal the period of significant frequencies and can be used to fit a periodic trend.

### What is a Fourier term?

A Fourier series is an expansion of a periodic function. in terms of an infinite sum of sines and cosines. Fourier series make use of the orthogonality relationships of the sine and cosine functions.

**What is trend and season in TSLM?**

tslm is largely a wrapper for lm() except that it allows variables “trend” and “season” which are created on the fly from the time series characteristics of the data.

**What does Tbats stand for?**

TBATS is an acronym for key features of the model: T: Trigonometric seasonality. B: Box-Cox transformation. A: ARIMA errors. T: Trend.

#### How does Tbats model work?

TBATS model takes it roots in exponential smoothing methods and can be described by the following equations: Each seasonality is modeled by a trigonometric representation based on Fourier series. One major advantage of this approach is that it requires only 2 seed states regardless of the length of period.

**Why is it called exponential smoothing?**

The name ‘exponential smoothing’ is attributed to the use of the exponential window function during convolution.

**What does an Arima model do?**

Autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) models predict future values based on past values. ARIMA makes use of lagged moving averages to smooth time series data. They are widely used in technical analysis to forecast future security prices.
