Good book, but too many unexplained formulas
on October 12, 2016
This book is heavy on theory and formulas. If you are not PhD in math, you will probably have difficulties following some of the concepts.
Even though the authors claim that the book has practical examples in R, the book is mostly theoretical. Most of the formulas are not explained and you will end up guessing what "k", "j", and hundreds of other Greek letters and symbols mean. Most of the time series topics do not have any numerical examples and for each sentence you will end up staring at 5 different formulas. Later, you will end up Googling stuff. The good side of the book is that it includes the most important time series theoretical concepts and it is useful to have this book if you are serious about time series analysis.
