Jon Cryer 61.jpgMay 30, 2008, Greencastle, Ind. - Jonathan D. Cryer, professor emeritus in the University of Iowa's department of statistics and actuarial science and 1961 graduate of DePauw University, has co-authored the second edition of Time Series Analysis with Applications in R. Published by Springer, the book is co-authored by Kung-Sik Chan.

The book "presents an accessible approach to understanding time series models and their applications," states a publisher's summary. "Although the emphasis is on time domain ARIMA models and their analysis, the new edition devotes two chapters to the frequency domain and three to time series regression models, models for heteroscedasticty, and threshold models. All of the ideas and methods are illustrated with both real and simulated data sets."
