"...The author aimed at bringing together, to a single research-oriented volume, various topics concerning the modelling and analysis of financial data, which were previously scattered in different books. ...The main difference from the first edition is in the time series modelling, but also this second edition considers discrete choice models, estimation of censored and truncated samples and other topics which developed significantly since the first edition. ... The unique feature of the book is that each chapter has a section or two of examples and cases, and a section of empirical literature. This will give a potential reader an opportunity both to understand better the theory and to practice in applying this theory to real models. ..." -Yuliya S. Mishura, Zentralblatt MATH 1171
