This course is intended for doctoral students majoring in economics and finance. It introduces basic models in time series, including ARMA, ARCH/GARCH, VAR, etc. More advanced subjects, such as state space models and nonstationary time series, will also be covered. During the first part of the course, some training in Matlab implementation will be provided, so that at the end of the course, students are expected to be able to do estimation and forecasting usingn Matlab.
