Description

TSP is command driven econometrics and statistics package. While the initials stand for "Time Series Processor", it can also handle cross section and panel data, that allow estimation and estimation under various methods. The TSP language includes symbolic differentiation and matrix algebra, and random number generation. Its feature may make coding a likelihood function, and placing parameter restrictions on it, easier relative to other software packages.
