Presents newly developed econometric methodology in model building and model evaluation in general.

  3. test for the existence of long run relationship and if it is nonlinear and stable
  4. conduct multivariate framework time series analysis based on vector auto regression
  5. test for the presence of multi-long run relationships and estimate the vector auto regressive model.
