Professor Stephen Pollock
My primary research interests are in time series analysis and statistical signal processing, with particular emphasis on the frequency-domain aspects. My research in this area is represented by a collection of papers that are available the address of http://www.le.ac.uk/users/dsgp1/SIGNALS/Papers.html.
The program IDEOLOG, which is for the filtering of economic data, can be downloaded from http://www.le.ac.uk/users/dsgp1/index.html
Latterly, my research has focussed on wavelets analysis, which combines the time domain and the frequency domain in a unified analysis. A wavelets approach is appropriate for analysing time-varying relationships in economics.
I have an enduring interest in environmental science. My essays on the environment are accessible via the address http://www.le.ac.uk/users/dsgp1/index.html
A collection of my recent political speeches delivered in the House of Lords, is available at the address. http://www.theyworkforyou.com/peer/viscount_hanworth
Research papers can be downloaded via RePEc.
