Matlab code for A Method for Decomposing Time Series into Trend and Cycle Components
AbstractThis method separate a time series into a smooth component whose mean varies over time (the trend) and a stationary component (the cycle). the non-parametric method for obtaining the trend ensures that short term changes in trend growth are not associated with the current level of the cycle, thus ensuring a modicum of independence between the two series.
