Presents a unique focus on central limit theorems applicable to time series, spatial, and other models with various types of deterministic regressors along with concepts from established and newly developing research

While econometric models with deterministic regressors have been around for more than half a century, the methods designed specifically to study such models have only appeared in the last decade. Short–Memory Linear Processes and Econometric Applications serves as a comprehensive source of asymptotic results for econometric models with deterministic regressors. The author provides a balanced presentation of both established and newly developed results in the field, highlighting regressors including linear trends, seasonally oscillating functions, and slowly varying functions as well as some specifications of spatial matrices in the theory of spatial models.

The book begins with central limit theorems (CLTs) for weighted sums of short–memory linear processes, which have proved to be most useful in modeling dependence over time. This discussion includes the analysis of certain operators in Lp spaces and their employment in the derivation of CLTs. READ MORE >
