Here is our basic time series model: z t - the exogenous variable, information that is given (independent variables in regression) x t - the observation (dependent variables in regression) y t - we assume this is zero mean, stationary (Gaussian) time series In particular, we want to find β. For now, we don't really care what is going on with the y t . If we do not have iid errors here and we plug what we have into R and use the lm function, it would return a β. However, this doesn't mean that your estimate is any good. R just gave us something which might be wrong. Certainly things like the p -values and standard errors cannot be trusted if the errors are correlated. We talked about how, if this dependency is not outrageously strong, then our estimate for β is probably decent. The standard errors, however, could be bad and prediction intervals could be bad - we can't trust anything that depends on the distribution. Geometrically it should give us a reasonable estimate for β, but this doesn't mean other aspects of the fit are good. We would like to be in a situation where everything is correct, i.e., we properly adjust for the dependence. The formula above is the univariate case. Generally, we can have more than one covariate and then it would look more like this multivariate model:

where z t and β are the vectors of exogenous variables and parameters: and One thing we could do is look at simply dependency on time as above. We also might look at something such as unemployment ( x t ) and GDP ( z t ). For our regression, we want is for y t not to be a general stationary process, but to be white noise. Assume for a minute that y t is an AR (2). Let's also assume that you know the AR coefficients φ 1 and φ 2 : How can we convert y t into white noise? Can we multiply our y observations y 1 , y 2 , y 3 , . .. by something? What if we multiplied them by φ( B ): We get the following transformation: , which then gives us , which is equal to w t . This is how we can 'whiten' our time series. Now, let's go back to our regression. I want to make this transform so that y t is no longer y t but that it is w t . If it is w t we are in a regular regression situation with iid errors. We can multiply everything by φ( B ): Now, φ( B ) y t is w t correct? Are we still doing the same regression? We started out in our problem looking for dependency between
