The seventh volume in the SemStat series, Statistical Methods for Stochastic Differential Equations presents current research trends and recent developments in statistical methods for stochastic differential equations. Written to be accessible to both new students and seasoned researchers, each self-contained chapter starts with introductions to the topic at hand and builds gradually towards discussing recent research.
The book covers Wiener-driven equations as well as stochastic differential equations with jumps, including continuous-time ARMA processes and COGARCH processes. It presents a spectrum of estimation methods, including nonparametric estimation as well as parametric estimation based on likelihood methods, estimating functions, and simulation techniques. Two chapters are devoted to high-frequency data. Multivariate models are also considered, including partially observed systems, asynchronous sampling, tests for simultaneous jumps, and multiscale diffusions.
Statistical Methods for Stochastic Differential Equations is useful to the theoretical statistician and the probabilist who works in or intends to work in the field, as well as to the applied statistician or financial econometrician who needs the methods to analyze biological or financial time series.

"… an excellent resource for anyone currently active in research in this area, interested in getting into research in the area, or just interested in the topic. I cannot think of another source that provides detailed yet accessible introductions of this quality and timeliness to the major issues of interest in this area. … As noted in the preface, the idea is to get young researchers ‘quickly to the forefront of knowledge and research.’ … The book succeeds in delivering on this goal. A careful reading of the chapters of this book would go a long way toward putting one in a position to begin contributing to the large and rapidly growing body of research in this important area of statistics. It would certainly be an excellent resource for teaching advanced Ph.D. courses. … This is a wonderful book for anyone interested in SDEs. I highly recommend it and am happy to have it on my bookshelf."

"The contributors are all renowned specialists in the field … the last four chapters are generally well written, informative, and cover a wide range of different aspects of statistics for SDE … the first three chapters … constitute an original and very useful contribution in a field that too often has the reputation of being technical and somehow austere. … I strongly recommend the book for anyone interested in the wide topic of statistical methods for SDE, whether she or he is a specialist or a student starting in the field."
