Alternative Time Series Analysis


This is an alternative package to analyze the time series data, especially the univariate time series. Compared with other existing functions for time series analysis, most functions in this package provide nice outputs like SAS does for time series. Several functions are exactly the same names as 'arima' procedure in SAS, such as identify, estimate, and forecast, etc. They also have the similar outputs.
