A note on autoregressive models with fuzzy random variables

  • Dabuxilatu WangEmail author


In this note, we propose some novel autoregressive models with fuzzy random variables, and by which the definitions and proofs for the AR(p) model given in a paper by Wang are improved. We also demonstrate some mistakes in an example of the AR sequence given in a paper by Feng et al. and correct these. Finally, a practical example on forecasting of the Hang Seng Index (HSI) is presented for an explanation of the proposed models.
