This book discusses recent developments in theoretical and empirical business cycle analysis, identifying possible applications of sophisticated tools by private and public institutions involved in the analysis of economic fluctuations and facilitating interaction between academics, researchers and institutions in the area of business cycle.The volume features recent methodological advances in several important areas for business cycle analysis, such as multivariate statistical methods, synchronization and convergence, composite indicators, turning points dating and detection, output gap measurement, as well as innovative applications of the existing theories and methods to the economy of the Euro-zone.
