Modelling physical data with linear discrete time series, namely Fractionally Integrated Autoregressive Moving Average (ARFIMA), is a technique which achieved attention in recent years. However, these models are used mainly as a statistical tool only, with weak emphasis on physical background of the model. The main reason for this lack of attention is that ARFIMA model describes discrete-time measurements, whereas physical models are formulated using continuous-time parameter. In order to remove this discrepancy we show that time series of this type can be regarded as sampled trajectories of the coordinates governed by system of linear stochastic differential equations with constant coefficients. The observed correspondence provides formulas linking ARFIMA parameters and the coefficients of the underlying physical stochastic system, thus providing a bridge between continuous-time linear dynamical systems and ARFIMA models.
