A time series is a collection of observations made sequentially through time. Each observation or value in the series has a time index. GoldSim contains a Time Series element which provides a way to input a time series into a GoldSim model.
This example model demonstrates examples of Time Series elements whose input definitions are given by a vector or a matrix. In this case there is one time index for all indices of the vector or matrix.
Vector Time Series
The input data represents a vector of values at specified points in time. In this case, it represents the price of three metals, gold, silver and platinum.
Matrix Time Series
The input data represents a matrix of values at specified points in time. In this case, it represents the quantity (in kg) of three metals (gold, silver and platinum), from two locations (East, West).
