# Time Series, Forecasting, Autocovariance and Autocorrelation

I would appreciate it if someone could provide the solution to QA1 of the attatched exam paper.

SECTION A

A1 (a) Give the definitions of the autocovariance and autocorrelation of a time series model.

(b) Calculate the autocovariance and autocorrelation function for the time series

Y = 3 + Zt + 1/2Zt-1 + 1/5Zt-2,

where {Zt} are independent N(O, 1) random variables.
