Time series analysis and prediction on complex dynamical behavior observed in a blast furnace. (English) Zbl 0985.37096

This paper deals with a strategy for building predictive models for complex time series. Time series data of temperature fluctuations actually observed in a blast furnace for iron-making are taken as an example. The dynamical nature of the data as prior knowledge for designing the predictors is characterized by the diagnostic tests both for determinism and for stationarity.
