After a consideration of the identification of models, a discussion of estimation and diagnosis follows. The section concludes with a treatment of metadiagnosis and forecasting of the univariate noncausal models. The third section focuses on multivariate causal time series models, including intervention and transfer function models.

5. REPRESENTATIVENESS If the series comes from a sample of a population, then the sampling should be done so that the sample is representative of the population. The sampling should be a probability sample repeated at equal intervals over time. If a single sample is being used to infer an underlying probability distribution and the sample moments for limited lengths of the series approach their population moments as the series gets infinitely large, the process is said to be ergodic (Mills, 1990).

Using the lag operator facilitates explanations of differencing. 5. THE DIFFERENCE OPERATOR The difference operator, del, is symbolized by the ٌ. The first difference of yt is given by the following expression: wt ϭ ٌyt ϭ yt Ϫ ytϪ1 . Another way of expressing this first difference is wt ϭ ٌyt ϭ (1 Ϫ L)yt . The second difference is the first difference of the first difference: ٌ2yt ϭ ٌ(ٌyt) ϭ (1 Ϫ L)(1 Ϫ L)yt ϭ (1 Ϫ 2L ϩ L2)yt ϭ (yt Ϫ 2 ytϪ1 ϩ ytϪ2). These brief introductory explanations should enable the reader previously unfamiliar with this notation to more easily understand the following chapters.
