Artificial Markets Modeling: Methods and Applications (Lecture Notes in Economics and Mathematical Systems)

Agent-based computational modeling with its intrinsic multidisciplinary process is gaining expanding reputation within the social sciences, really in economics, company and finance. The technique is now conventional to compute analytical types numerically and attempt them for departures from theoretical assumptions, and to supply stand-alone simulation versions for difficulties which are analytically intractable.

The inconvenient suggestion that the 38 Econometrics, a guided tour econometric model is not immediately obvious to the econometrician may also explain why people find econometric analysis in practice so difficult. ” And indeed, there are different models for different purposes. An additional assumption often made, which is also something one rarely encounters in practice, is that the relevant data are all available and properly measured. This is not always true, and to me it seems therefore important to discuss data collection in more detail.

A more formal way of putting this is that +∞ −∞ 1 1 2 √ e − 2 z dz 2π 1. 4) says that the sum of all fractions is equal to 1. Sometimes it may be of interest to consider the total area underneath the pdf up to a certain point. ” Such an area is then equal to z (z) −∞ 1 1 2 √ e − 2 z dz. 5) This is called the cumulative density function (cdf). 2. 2 says that, for example, almost all observations on a standard normal distribution are smaller than 4. An example of a variable which might be distributed as normal is the total dollar sales in large retail stores, where it is assumed that sales close to zero are rare.

1) with β 2 = 1. 1). At first sight one would think that this is a rather precise statement, but unfortunately it is not for two reasons. The first is that there is no discussion of the observation frequency for which this model should hold. Indeed, as Granger (1999) also indicates, if this model held for monthly data, it by definition would not hold for quarterly data, as temporal aggregation entails that the model requires additional explanatory variables. Additionally, the key aspect of the theory is that β 2 = 1, which in time series jargon is defined as saying that yt has a unit root.
