3 Cholesky Decomposition and Innovations Wishing to predict future realizations of a time series is one of the basic reasons for analyzing time series. The inverse system we introduced in Chapter 3 is linked to a special and easy case of prediction which we mention in passing. We give a more detailed exposition later in several related chapters. Suppose {Yt} is a scalar-valued weakly stationary process. •• + BqLq, and {e t } is a serially uncorrelated mean zero weakly stationary process with varience 0 2 • This is because E(y t Ie t- l' + Bqet_q, if we know e l , e 2 , ••• , e t _ l • How do we obtain these e's?

L)Vt · The sequence {V t } generated by (5) has the same form as (1), hence can be put into state space form and (7) X (t+l) Vt = = AX(t) (0 ••• 0 by introducing the vector X(t) ••• , Xp_l(t) = v t _ l and Xp(t) + bUt' l)X(t) + u t ' (X(t), ... , Xp (t»' where Xl(t) = v t -p+ l' vt - u t . by Yt = 80v t + 8 1Vt _ l + ••• + 8p_1Vt_p+l 8 0 (Xp (t) + Ut ) + 81Xp _ l (t) + ••• + 8p _ 1Xl (t) (8) where c' = (8p _ l ' ••• , 8 1 , 8 0 ). Collecting (7) and (8) together, a state space representation of the ARMA model (4) becomes X(t+l) (9) Yt = AX(t) = c'X(t) + bUt' + 80ut.

The representation (9) has a simple b vector with a complicated c vector, while (9') has a complicated b vector and a simple c vector. • , AP-Ib are easily seen to be linearly independent because they have the structure o o o I x o o o I o I x I x x Ab b Examples x Second-order systems are used to give an example of observable canonical form and its dual or controllable canonical form. The precise sense in which these canonical forms are duals of each other is also indicated. Consider Write this as a nested sequence of lag operations: Let Substitute Yt out by Xl (t) + BOUt to yield -1 L where Xl (t) = -a 1 X1 (t) + ylu t + L(-a 2 y + B2 u t ) 30 -1 Letting X2(t) equal to L(-a 2y + S2Ut)' and recalling that L Xl (t) Xl(t + 1) we derive Xl (t + 1) and -CJ.
