**PMTEII**Theory of Econometrics

basic matrix algebra, elementary probability and mathematical statistics, pssing the course Introduction to econometrics (BPE_ZAEK) (recommended) **Course Enrolment Limitations**- The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
**fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with**- there are 6 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
**Course objectives**- Topics of introductory econometrics (covered in "Introduction to Econometrics") will be reviewed and expanded into more advanced level, in terms of both the econometric theory and the level of complexity of the models. Advanced econometric topics include instrumental variable estimations, maximum likelihood estimation, GMM etc.

The course is designed to provide students with a working knowledge of basic and advanced econometric tools so that:

They can apply these tools to modeling, estimation, inference, and forecasting in the context of real world economic problems.

They can evaluate critically the results and conclusions from others who use econometric methods and tools.

They have a foundation and understanding for further study of econometric theory. **Syllabus**- 1. Introduction to linear regression model – normal linear regression model, least squares method, testing of hypothesis;
- 2. Heteroskedascity and autocorrelation – causes, consequences, testing, solution;
- 3. Other estimation tools and techniques – method of instrumental variables, GMM, maximal likelihood (principles and examples of use), tests of specifications;
- 4. Panel data models – basic principles and variations, estimation methods
- 5. Discrete choice models – probit, logit, tobit models and their alternatives (principles, use and interpretation of results of estimation);
- 6. Univariate time series models – ARMA processes, unit root tests, cointegration of time series and error-correction models, ARCH and GARCH models of volatility;
- 7. Simultaneous equations models - structural and reduced form, 2SLS, 3SLS, LIML, FIML;
- 8. Multivariate time series models – VAR models, VECM models (principles and examples of use);
- 9. State space models - Kalman filter and maximal likelihood estimation;
