that are disclosed and justified by economic theory. Econometrics is an independent scientific discipline, combining a set of theoretical results, techniques, methods and models designed to give concrete quantitative expression to general

(qualitative) laws due to economic theory, economic statistics and economic measurements, mathematical and statistical tools the theory.

Econometric modeling of real socio-economic processes and systems usually pursues two types of final applied goals: 1) the forecast of economic and socio-economic indicators characterizing the state and development of the analyzed system; 2) imitation of various possible scenarios of socio-economic development of the analyzed system (multivariate scenario calculations, situational

modeling).

The purpose of teaching the discipline is to gain knowledge in the field of building econometric models and determining the possibilities of using models to describe, analyze and forecast real economic processes at both the micro and

macro levels. The main tasks of studying the discipline are: decision-making methodology on specification and identification of models; familiarization with the methods and techniques for interpreting the results of econometric modeling; study of the principles of choosing a method for estimating model parameters;

development of sustainable practical skills for the development of forecast estimates.

Modeling of nonlinear dynamic systems

The aim of the course is to obtain the necessary theoretical information and

practical skills in using modern methods of analysis of various modes of

functioning of nonlinear dynamic systems.

Most real-life dynamic systems (technical, physical, biological, chemical, or

economic) exhibit complex nonlinear dynamics. The signals generated by such systems are highly variable, and the relationships between the interacting elements of these dynamic systems are nonlinear. Nonlinear dynamic systems are

characterized by a wide variety of possible functional modes. The nonlinearity of the system is reflected in the fact that small changes in the parameters of the system can cause significant changes in the patterns of the generated signals or even lead to a qualitative change in the behavior of the system (change in the mode

of functioning). The variety of dynamics observed in nonlinear systems can be reduced to certain characteristic types of behavior, that is, a dynamic system, evolving, comes to a certain region of the phase space, and all the trajectories of the system are contracted to a certain attractor. The search for such attractors

allows one to get an idea of the qualitative picture of the dynamics of the investigated nonlinear system. Using the methods of bifurcation theory is it possible to find the values of the parameters, the changes of which lead to the emergence of another attractor, and, consequently, change the mode of functioning

of the dynamic system. Bifurcation is accompanied by the disappearance of some

and the emergence of new modes of functioning. Each bifurcation is accompanied by the loss of stability of one attractor and the appearance of another attractor. The search for attractors of the studied system and the subsequent analysis of their stability is an important step in understanding the mechanisms of functioning of a dynamic system. The bifurcation theory has found wide application in various practical tasks. The identification of typical regional seismicity regimes (earthquakes), the dynamics of the solar magnetic field can be used in the tasks of

long-term forecast of strong earthquakes. Determining the parameters of economic

systems, the evolution of which from one unstable state to another can lead to a regime of dynamic chaos (crisis), provides a tool for studying the possibility of its occurrence.

Modeling and identification of processes using wavelet analysis

The aim of the course is to obtain the necessary theoretical information and

practical skills in using modern methods of time series analysis (discrete and

continuous wavelet analysis), which allow one to evaluate dynamic changes in the

patterns of complex nonstationary signals generated by various dynamic systems.

Wavelet analysis methods are widely used at present to solve various practical problems, for example, for analysis and synthesis of signals, for image processing, for compressing large data. These methods have found application in

the analysis of electrocardiograms, electroencephalograms and brain tomograms,

in the analysis of changes in prices and volumes of securities sales, in pattern recognition, in the diagnosis of the formation of various structures. The widespread use of wavelet analysis methods is due to the fact that, in contrast to the traditional Fourier transform, which has the same resolution in time and frequency for all points in the time series, wavelet functions are better suited for decoding information contained in processes with varying time characteristics, since the adaptive frequency-time window allows a high-frequency information to be extracted with relatively accurate time from relatively small time intervals, and a low-frequency information is determined from relatively wide time intervals.

The course includes solving practical problems in a computer class in MATLAB:

1) construction and analysis of local and global wavelet spectra of various time series; 2) removal of the noise component from the analyzed series; 3) comparison of the wavelet signal transform with the fast Fourier transform and the short-time Fourier transform in various technical and economic problems; 4) construction of cross-wavelet spectra and estimation of the wavelet coherence of two signals to determine local relations between two signals at certain points in

time at certain frequencies.
