Overview

This book surveys recent developments in the rapidly expanding field of asymptotic distribution theory, placing special emphasis on the problems of time-dependence and heterogeneity. It is technically self-contained, with all but the most basic mathematical prerequisites being explained in their context.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Davidson's book is a well-written introduction to the state of the art in econometric theory. It will be useful both as a text for advanced econometrics courses and as a reference source for econometricians. It provides a thorough treatment of the asymptotic analysis of the linear regression model, time series models, nonlinear optimization estimators, unit roots, and cointegration." Bruce E. Hansen, University of Wisconsin-Madison

"The systematic use of the conditional expectation approach to modelling throughout the text will provide readers with many useful insights. It is a very good and thought-provoking book. Much can be learnt from it, even by 'experts.' Leonard Gill, University of Manchester

"The book is stong on linear dynamic modelling of time series and has an excellent coverage of recent developments in econometrics for non-stationery time series. Cointegration theory is given a comprehensive and clear treatment, including an exposition of the underlying probability background - stockastic processes on function spaces, Brownian motion and so on - which I found to enhance understanding considerably. This will be a useful book, particularly to those teaching advanced courses in time-series econometrics. Overall, it is a fine and well-written piece of work.
