My new online fore­cast­ing book (writ­ten with George Athana­sopou­los) is now com­pleted. I pre­vi­ously described it on this blog nearly a year ago.

In real­ity, an online book is never com­plete, and we plan to con­tin­u­ally update it. But it is now at the point where it is suit­able for course work, and con­tains exer­cises and references.

We hope that users (espe­cially other lec­tur­ers) will sub­mit mate­ri­als such as slides and exer­cises, that can be shared on the website.

For those want­ing a print ver­sion, we will be sell­ing it via Ama­zon in the next few months. The online ver­sion will remain freely available.

If other authors are inter­ested in this pub­lish­ing model, please see this page. The book is being pub­lished by OTexts, a new inno­v­a­tive pub­lish­ing com­pany I am estab­lish­ing. The fore­cast­ing book is our first pub­li­ca­tion, but we have three oth­ers that should be online within the next month or two.
