In this chapter we discuss the use of Bayesian nonparametric methods for time series anal- ysis. First developed by Ferguson (1973) these methods focus on how a stochastic process can be used as a prior over probability measures as well as a prior on the underlining mixing measure in a mixture model. The empirical examples of the chapter centre on financial and macroeco- nomic time series, and demonstrate that volatility, long memory and vector autoregressive models underpinned by Bayesian nonparametric methods have superior out-of-sample pre- dictive performance compared to other competitive models.
