Functional Structure and Approximation in Econometrics (book front matter)

By William A. Barnett, Jane Binner and W. Erwin Diewert


This is the front matter from the book, William A. Barnett and Jane Binner (eds.), Functional Structure and Approximation in Econometrics, published in 2004 by Elsevier in its Contributions to Economic Analysis monograph series. The front matter includes the Table of Contents, Volume Introduction, and Section Introductions by Barnett and Binner and the Preface by W. Erwin Diewert. The volume contains a unified collection and discussion of W. A. Barnett's most important published papers on applied and theoretical econometric modelling.consumer demand, production, flexible functional form, functional structure, asymptotics, nonlinearity, systemwide models
