Applied Time Series Econometrics

Time series econometrics is used for predicting future developments of variables of interest such as economic growth, stock market volatility or interest rates. A model has to be constructed, accordingly, to describe the data generation process and to estimate its parameters. Modern tools to accomplish these tasks are provided in this volume, which also demonstrates by example how the tools can be applied.

About the Author

Helmut L�tkepohl is Professor of Economics at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. He is on leave from Humboldt University Berlin where he has been Professor of Econometrics in the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration since 1992. He had previously been Professor of Statistics at the University of Kiel (1987�992) and the University of Hamburg (1985-1987) and was Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of California, San Diego (1984-85). Professor L�tkepohl is Associate Editor of Econometric Theory, the Journal of Applied Econometrics, Macroeconomic Dynamics, Empirical Economics and Econometric Reviewa. He has published extensively in learned journals and books and is author, co-author and editor of a number of books in econometrics and time series analysis. Professor L�tkepohl is the author of Introduction to Multiple Time Series Analysis (1991) and a Handbook of Matrices (1996). His current teaching and research interests include methodological issues related to the study of nonstationary, integrated time series and the analysis of the transmission mechanism of monetary policy in the Euro area.

Markus Kr�tzig is a doctoral student in the Department of Economics at Humboldt University, Berlin.
