Keywords: ARMA(X) and statespace systems, time series analysis, system identification, parameterization of linear systems, maximum likelihood estimation
Originally published in 1988, The Statistical Theory of Linear Systems deals with identification (in the sense of obtaining a model from data) of multiinput and multioutput linear systems, in particular systems in ARMAX and state space form.
The book emphasizes the underlying theory. It covers
This edition includes an extensive new introduction that outlines central ideas and features of the subject matter, as well as developments since the bookÕs original publication, such as subspace identification, datadriven local coordinates, and the results on postmodelselection estimators. It also provides a section of errata and an updated bibliography.
Audience
Researchers and graduate students studying time series statistics, systems identification, econometrics, and signal processing will find this book useful for its comprehensive theoretical analysis and, in particular, for its interweaving of foundational information on structure theory and statistical analysis of linear systems.
E. J. Hannan (19211994) was Professor of Statistics at the Australian National University in Canberra. He was a pioneer of modern time series analysis and winner of both the Pitman Medal and the Thomas Ranken Lyle Medal. The Australian Academy of Sciences commemorates his work by awarding the Hannan Medal every two years to recognize achievements of Australians in pure mathematics, applied and computational mathematics, and statistical science.
Manfred Deistler is Emeritus Professor at the Vienna University of Technology and a member of the visiting faculty of the Institute of Advanced Studies, Vienna. He is a Fellow of the Econometric Society, the IEEE, and the Journal of Econometrics.
