There is a chapter on time series models (by Robert A. Stine, Wharton 
School) in _Economic and Financial Modeling with Mathematica_ (Hal Varian, 
ed.), published (with accompanying diskette) by Telos (Springer-Verlag), 
1993.  I don't see much overlap between Stine's package and what you 
mention above, but you might want to look at it.

Mathematicians are like Frenchmen:  whenever you say something to them,
they translate it into their own language, and at once it is something
entirely different.                                    J. W. v. GOETHE
