Essays in Nonlinear Time Series Econometrics

Niels Haldrup, Mika Meitz, and Pentti Saikkonen


This book is a collection of 14 original research articles presented at the conference Nonlinear Time Series Econometrics that was held in Ebeltoft, Denmark, in June 2012. The conference gathered several eminent time series econometricians to celebrate the work and outstanding career of Professor Timo Teräsvirta, one of the leading scholars in the field of nonlinear time series econometrics. The book is divided into four broad themes that all reflect Timo Teräsvirta’s work and methodology: testing for linearity and functional form, specification testing and estimation of nonlinear time series ...

Keywords: neglected nonlinearity, neural network models, time-varying GARCH model, smooth transition models, STAR, common factors, high-dimensional data analysis, commodity price modeling, financial forecasting, asymmetric loss function, local Gaussian correlation, bootstrap aggregation
