4434Econometrics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=437977
״This free textbook offers a simple survey over the most basic concepts that are studied within introductory courses in econometrics. The theory is clarified with numerous examples. Subjects as basic probability and statistics, statistical inference with the simple and multiple regression model, dummy variables and auto correlation are explained.״Thu, 11 Mar 2010 10:16:32 -0800Modeling Bounded Rationality
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=558188
״The notion of bounded rationality was initiated in the 1950s by Herbert Simon; only recently has it influenced mainstream economics. In this book, Ariel Rubinstein defines models of bounded rationality as those in which elements of the process of choice are explicitly embedded. The book focuses on the challenges of modeling bounded rationality, rather than on substantial economic implications.״ Wed, 15 Jun 2011 19:26:45 -0700Advances in Econometrics: Theory and Applications
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=625539
This book provides recent insight on some key issues in econometric theory and applications. The volume focuses on three recent advances in econometric theory: non-parametric estimation, instrument generating functions, and seasonal volatility models.Mon, 6 Feb 2012 14:38:59 -0800Analog Estimation Methods in Econometrics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=626153
This book presents familiar elements of estimation theory from an analog perspective. It discusses recent developments in the theory of analog estimation and presents new results that offer flexibility in empirical research. The book seeks to raise questions and to stimulate further research.Tue, 7 Feb 2012 12:49:48 -0800Analysis and Linear Algebra for Finance: Part I
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=907911
This is a free textbook offered by BookBoon.'This book and its companion (part II) present the elements of analysis and linear algebra used in financial models and in microeconomics. Functions of one and several variables and matrices are developed in part I and vector spaces, linear mappings and optimization methods are developed in part II. Instead of formal proofs as in mathematical books, we develop examples and economic illustrations of the use of the concepts presented in the book. The books complement “Probability in Finance” and “Stochastic Processes in Finance” providing a broad overview of the mathematics of financial models.'Tue, 11 Nov 2014 05:59:51 -0800Differential Information Economies
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=557973
״One of the problems in economic theory is to write contracts which are Pareto optimal, incentive compatible, and also implementable as a perfect Bayesian equilibrium of a dynamic, noncooperative game. The question arises whether it is possible to provide Walrasian type or cooperative equilibrium concepts which have these properties. This book contains original contributions on noncooperative and cooperative equilibrium notions in economies with differential information and provides answers to the above questions. Issues of stability, learning and continuity of alternative equilibria are also examined.״Tue, 14 Jun 2011 20:00:26 -0700Discrete Choice Methods with Simulation
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=626164
Simulation methods have unshackled discrete choice analysis, breaking down the computational barriers to use of plausible, interpretable models. Kenneth Train provides an excellent road map for both econometric specialists and practitioners through this comprehensive, readable treatment that pulls together the research literature and provides many new and useful results.Tue, 7 Feb 2012 12:33:14 -0800Econometrics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=435130
This is a free, online textbook that is available as a pdf. "This book is intended to serve as the textbook for a rst-year graduate course in econometrics. It can be used as a stand-alone text, or be used as a supplement to another text. Students are assumed to have an understanding of multivariate calculus, probability theory, linear algebra, and mathematical statistics. A prior course in undergraduate econometrics would be helpful, but not required.״Tue, 23 Feb 2010 20:28:24 -0800Econometrics

The central document is something between a set of lecture notes and a text book. It's not as terse as lecture notes, but not as complete or well-referenced as a text book. Of course, the document is constantly evolving, and you are welcome to modify it as you like.Tue, 7 Feb 2012 12:42:29 -0800
