This book contains an up-to-date coverage of the last twenty years advances in Bayesian inference in econometrics, with an emphasis on dynamic models. It shows how to treat Bayesian inference in non linear models, by integrating the useful developments of numerical integration techniques basedon simulations (such as Markov Chain Monte Carlo methods), and the long available analytical results of Bayesian inference for linear regression models. It thus covers a broad range of rather recent models for economic time series, such as non linear models, autoregressive conditionalheteroskedastic regressions, and cointegrated vector autoregressive models. It contains also an extensive chapter on unit root inference from the Bayesian viewpoint. Several examples illustrate the methods.

Editorial Reviews

`presents a comprehensive review of dynamic econometric models from a Bayesian perspective ... four insightful introductory chapters ... provide a valuable synthesis of current ideas and their application to parameter estimation.'Paul Goodwin, International Journa of Forecasting, 2000
