A Companion to Theoretical Econometrics


A Companion to Theoretical Econometrics provides a comprehensive reference to the basics of econometrics. It focuses on the foundations of the field and at the same time integrates popular topics often encountered by practitioners. The chapters are written by international experts and provide up-to-date research in areas not usually covered by standard econometric texts.

This book is an exceptional reference for readers who require quick access to the foundation theories in this field. Chapters are organized to provide clear information and to point to further readings on the subject. Important topics covered include:

  • serial correlation

  • heteroskedasticity

  • nonparametric and semiparametric models

  • count and panel data regression models

  • spatial correlation

Badi H. Baltagi is George Summey, Jr. Professor of Liberal Arts and Professor of Economics at Texas A & M University. He is a fellow and associate editor of the Journal of Econometrics, associate editor of Econometric Reviews, co-editor of Empirical Economics, and a recipient of the Multa Scripsit Award for Econometric Theory. Baltagi has published more than seventy articles in internationally recognized journals, and is the author of three books: Panel Data Analysis (1992), Econometric Analysis of Panel Data (1995), and Econometrics (second edition, 1999).
