Book Preface

This book describes statistical models and methods for analyzing discrete time series and presents important applications of the methodology. The models considered include the class of autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) models and various extensions of these models. The properties of the models are examined and statistical methods for model specification, parameter estimation, andmodel checking are presented.Applications to forecasting nonseasonal as well as seasonal time series are described. Extensions of the methodology to transfer function modeling of dynamic relationships between two or more time series, modeling the effects of intervention events, multivariate time series modeling, and process control are discussed. Topics such as state-space and structural modeling, nonlinear models, long-memory models, and conditionally heteroscedastic models are also covered. The goal has been to provide a text that is practical and of value to both academicians and practitioners.

The first edition of this book appeared in 1970 and around that time there was a great upsurge in research on time series analysis and forecasting. This generated a large influx of new ideas, modifications, and improvements by many authors. For example, several new research directions began to emerge in econometrics around that time, leading to what is now known as time series econometrics.Many of these developmentswere reflected in the fourth edition of this book and have been further elaborated upon in this new edition.

The main goals of preparing a new edition have been to expand and update earlier material, incorporate new literature, enhance and update numerical illustrations through the use of R, and increase the number of exercises in the book. Some of the chapters in the previous edition have been reorganized. For example, Chapter 14 on multivariate time series analysis has been reorganized and expanded, placing more emphasis on vector autoregressive (VAR) models. The VAR models are by far the most widely used multivariate time series models in applied work. This edition provides an expanded treatment of these models that includes software demonstrations.
