The basic characteristic of Modern Linear and Nonlinear Econometrics is that it presents a unified approach of modern linear and nonlinear econometrics in a concise and intuitive way. It covers four major parts of modern econometrics: linear and nonlinear estimation and testing, time series analysis, models with categorical and limited dependent variables, and, finally, a thorough analysis of linear and nonlinear panel data modeling. Distinctive features of this handbook are: -A unified approach of both linear and nonlinear econometrics, with an integration of the theory and the practice in modern econometrics. Emphasis on sound theoretical and empirical relevance and intuition. Focus on econometric and statistical methods for the analysis of linear and nonlinear processes in economics and finance, including computational methods and numerical tools. -Completely worked out empirical illustrations are provided throughout, the macroeconomic and microeconomic (household and firm level) data sets of which are available from the internet- these empirical illustrations are taken from finance (e.g. CAPM and derivatives), international economics (e.g. exchange rates), innovation economics (e. g. patenting), business cycle analysis, monetary economics, housing economics, labor and educational economics (e.g. demand for teachers according to gender) and many others. -Exercises are added to the chapters, with a focus on the interpretation of results- several of these exercises involve the use of actual data that are typical for current empirical work and that are made available on the internet. What is also distinguishable in Modern Linear and Nonlinear Econometrics is that every major topic has a number of examples, exercises or case studies. By this 'learning by doing' method the intention is to prepare the reader to be able to design, develop and successfully finish his or her own research and/or solve real world problems.

    It's still going to be expensive. And time-consuming.

    But not to leave too negative an Al-Anon after-taste, though their meetings are less reliably good than AA, a good Al-Anon meeting is really good. I mean really good. Codependence is, after all, a deadly disease. It takes something really good to cut through it.

    I just finished Cobweb Bride. But this has begun my appreciation of your writing abilities! Holy Mackeral as my Grandfather used to say! I am a prolific reader, often digesting several books a month. When a top quality book fibds its way onto my plate, I surely know it. Cobweb Bride was a filet mignon among many burgers so thank you! I look forward to the next with overly eager anticipation. Literally like Chtistmas in July, no pun intended since it actually IS July!
