Review:

From the reviews of the second edition:

“Individual papers in this book could easily be considered for publication in many fine journals of finance ... . In all the papers, the documentation is well done, with a good deal of simulation studies to exemplify the processes under consideration. I would recommend this book for the library of serious researchers in field of the economic analysis of financial markets as well as those in statistical research in applied fields. Mathematical economists as well as statistical researchers will find the volume useful ... .” (Jeffrey E. Jarrett, Technometrics, Vol. 54 (1), February, 2012)
