Dynamic Economic Models in Discrete Time: Theory and Empirical Applications
Brian S. FergusonISBN: 0415288991;
Book DescriptionEconomic behavior is inherently dynamic. While things change continuously over time, much of economic analysis is based on discrete time, such as a month, quarter or a year reflecting the periodic nature of data-collecting and decision-making. This book introducesand develops the techniques of discrete time modelling starting with first order difference equation models and building up to systems of difference equations, along the way covering such topics as: * Non-linear difference equation modles * Random walks and chaoticprocesses * Optimisation in discrete time models This well-written and easy to follow book will be primarily of interest to upper level students carrying out economic modelling. The nature of the book--bridginga gap between economics and econometric literature--will mean thatis also of interest to all academics with an interest in econometrics and mathematical economics.
