The late James Durbin was Professor of Statistics at the London School of Economics, President of the Royal Statistical Society and President of the International Statistical Institute. He was awarded the society's bronze, silver and gold medals for his contribution to statistics. He was a fellow of the British Academy. Siem Jan Koopman has been Professor of Econometrics at the Free University in Amsterdam and research fellow at the Tinbergen Institute since 1999. He fullfills editorial duties at the Journal of Applied Econometrics, the Journal of Forecasting, the Journal of Multivariate Analysis and Statistica Sinica.
`Review from previous edition ...provides an up-to-date exposition and comprehensive treatment of state space models in time series analysis...This book will be helpful to graduate students and applied statisticians working in the area of econometric modelling as well as researchers in the areas of engineering, medicine and biology where state space models are used.'
