The concept of time sequence versions has been good constructed during the last thirt,y years. either the frequenc.y area and time area methods were standard within the research of linear time sequence versions. besides the fact that. many actual phenomena can't be thoroughly represented by way of linear versions; for this reason the need of nonlinear types and better order spectra. lately a couple of nonlinear versions were proposed. during this monograph we limit awareness to at least one specific nonlinear version. often called the "bilinear model". the main fascinating characteristic of this kind of version is that its moment order covariance research is ve~ just like that for a linear version. This demonstrates the significance of upper order covariance research for nonlinear types. For bilinear types it's also attainable to acquire analytic expressions for covariances. spectra. and so on. that are usually tricky to procure for different proposed nonlinear versions. Estimation of bispectrum and its use within the development of checks for linearit,y and symmetry also are mentioned. all of the tools are illustrated with simulated and actual info. the 1st writer wish to recognize the ease he obtained within the guidance of this monograph from providing a sequence of lectures regarding bilinear types on the collage of Bielefeld. Ecole Normale Superieure. college of Paris (South) and the Mathematisch Cen trum. Ams terdam.

2 Estimation of the Spectral Density Function Let Xl' X2 , ••• ,X N be a realization of a real valued second order stationary process {X t } with mean ~ and covariance function R(s). The natural estimates of ~ and R(s), respectively, are 1 N X = N L Xt , t=l A 1 N-isl R(s) = N L (Xt-X) (Xt+1sl-X), s t=l = O,±1,±2, ... ) ="21iN L (Xt-X) e="5 11 11 N-l L s=-N+ 1 -i s U! ). c;~l window" (see Parzen, 1957; Priestley. 1981). 2) 31 MKO(Me). with Ko(e) satisfying the following conditions CD f CD (i) f Ko( e) d e = 1.

In fact Priestley (1981) defines an "Efficiency Index" of a window which is proportional to the relative mean square error. He shows that the Bartlett-Priestley window has the smallest Index value amongst all the non-negative windows with characteristic exponent 2. The actual estimation of f(w) depends on several factors, some of which are (i) the degree of smoothness required of the spectral estimate and (ii) the reso1vability of the peaks in the estimate. 4) and the value of M. 7) and hence we do not go further into these details.

7) to be useful for forecasting purposes, it is necessa~ to be able to estimate the unobservable rando~ variables {e t } when only {X t } is available. 7) so that one can write e t in terms of the past and the present {X s ' sst}. 5. Recently Granger and Andersen (1978c) have provided another definition of invertibility which can be applied to both linear and non-linear time series. 27 A model is said to be invertible if it is possible to estimate the e t sequence from the given Xt values together with an exact knowledge of the generating model (Granger and Andersen.
