Course description

Several major advances in time-series econometrics and likelihood-based inference have occurred in the past years. These advances have provided a major breakthrough in the modeling of time series using advanced up-to-date econometric methodologies. The first part of the course aims to provide a thorough understanding of linear time series models, including frequency domain analysis, multivariate models and co-integration. The second part focusses on state space models and the Kalman filter, discussing signal extraction, maximum likelihood estimation and dynamic factor models. The course will also discuss ARCH and score-driven volatility models. Various empirical illustrations in economics and finance will be discussed.
