Let us try to predict a time series. The goal here is to establish a function based on observed values (time series data). Using


we attempt to obtain a function

$$x_t = f (x_{t-1},x_{t-2},x_{t-3},x_{t-4},...,x_{t-M})~~~~~~~ (4.2)$$

that can be used to predict current data x t from previously observed data. The reader should note that the arguments of this function do not include a time variable t. This is to avoid deriving a time series prediction function that is dependent on absolute time.
