The purpose of this paper is to expand discrete GM (1,1) model and solve the problem of non‐equidistance grey prediction problem with integral interval or digital interval.
Discrete GM (1,1) model can be utilized to simulate exponential sequence without errors, but it can't be utilized to simulate non‐equidistance data sequence. This paper applied optimization theories to establish generalized discrete GM (1,1) model. First, this paper established the time response of simulation sequence directly. Second, this paper established the steps of non‐equidistance data sequence. Finally, this paper utilized examples to test the method put forward.
The results indicate the generalized discrete GM (1,1) (GDGM) model can perfectly simulate non‐equidistance exponential series. Discrete GM (1,1) model is only the special form of GDGM model.
Though grey forecasting models are widely used, most of the forecasting models are based on the equal distance sequence. Due to many reasons, the raw data available usually is incomplete. There are mainly four reasons which caused non‐equidistance sequence. So generalized discrete GM (1,1) model can be utilized to simulate non‐equidistance sequence and has great application values.
The paper succeeds in establishing a generalized discrete GM (1,1) model which can be utilized to solve non‐equidistance data sequence forecasting. The GDGM model can be solved by MATLAB or other corresponding software.
