This book, and its companion volume in the Econometric Society Monographs series (ESM number 33), present a collection of papers by Clive W. J. Granger. His contributions to economics and econometrics, many of them seminal, span more than four decades and touch on all aspects of time series analysis. The papers assembled in this volume explore topics in spectral analysis, seasonality, nonlinearity, methodology, and forecasting. Those in the companion volume investigate themes in causality, integration and cointegration, and long memory. The two volumes contain the original articles as well as an introduction written by the editors.

• Major essays of arguably the world's leading active econometrician • Granger is internationally known, author of 1999 Press title Empirical Modeling in Economics • Topics cover major areas of econometrics and time series analysis, including forecasting, seasonality, and nonlinearity
