This course is concerned with some topics in modern time series econometrics. Its coverage begins with some of the fundamental concepts used to analyse stationary time series, before proceeding to the analysis of nonstationary (integrated) processes that have dominated recent research in theoretical and applied time series econometrics. The emphasis throughout is on maximum likelihood estimation of linear models, and both univariate and multivariate processes and models are examined. The course concludes with a treatment of continuous time models and ARCH models.
Upon successful completion of this course students will have acquired an appreciation of econometric methods applicable to the analysis of models for economic time series, covering stationary and nonstationary situations in both univariate and multivariate contexts. They should understand the methods of estimation and inference as applied in these models, be able to derive the properties of some econometric methods applicable to time series and be prepared for the use of these methods in their own empirical research.
