Prophet is a procedure for forecasting time series data based on an additive mod el where non-linear trends are fit with yearly, weekly, and daily seasonality, p lus holiday effects. It works best with time series that have strong seasonal ef fects and several seasons of historical data. Prophet is robust to missing data and shifts in the trend, and typically handles outliers well.

You can also choose a (more experimental) alternative stan backend called `cmdst anpy`. It requires the [CmdStan](https://mc-stan.org/users/interfaces/cmdstan) c ommand line interface and you will have to specify the environment variable `STA N_BACKEND` pointing to it, for example: You can also choose a (more experimental) alternative stan backend called `cmdst anpy`.
