The field of financial econometrics has exploded over the last decade This book represents an integration of theory, methods, and examples using the S-PLUS statistical modeling language and the S+FinMetrics module to facilitate the practice of financial econometrics. This is the first book to show the power of S-PLUS for the analysis of time series data. It is written for researchers and practitioners in the finance industry, academic researchers in economics and finance, and advanced MBA and graduate students in economics and finance. Readers are assumed to have a basic knowledge of S-PLUS and a solid grounding in basic statistics and time series concepts. This Second Edition is updated to cover S+FinMetrics 2.0 and includes new chapters on copulas, nonlinear regime switching models, continuous-time financial models, generalized method of moments, semi-nonparametric conditional density models, and the efficient method of moments.

Dieses Buch bietet eine einheitliche und geschlossene Darstellung von Theorie und Modellen, die der Zeitreihenanalyse zugrunde liegen. Das Schwergewicht liegt dabei beim schwach stationären Fall und bei linearen Modellen: Im ersten Teil wird die Theorie allgemeiner multivariater schwach stationärer Prozesse in Zeit-und Frequenzbereich, einschließlich deren Prognose und Filterung hergeleitet. Der zweite Teil beschäftigt sich mit multivariaten AR-, ARMA- und Zustandsraum-Systemen als den wichtigsten Modellklassen für stationäre Prozesse. In diesem Rahmen werden Yule-Walker Gleichungen, die Faktorisierung rationaler Spektren, das Kalman Filter und die Struktur von ARMA-und Zustandsraum-Systemen beschrieben. Ziel des Buches ist es die wesentlichen Konzepte, Ideen, Methoden und Resultate in mathematisch sauberer Form darzustellen und somit eine solide Fundierung für Studenten und Forscher in Feldern wie datengetriebener Modellierung, Prognose und Filterung, wie sie etwa für die Kontrolltheorie, Ökonometrie, Signalverarbeitung und Statistik relevant sind, zu bieten.
