General Materials

Fairness of Earnings Example
All examples are based on the fairness of earnings example used in our book. To better comprehend the material it will be helpful to have a compact overview on this example (e.g. how the different dimensions and levels are coded, what combinations are defined as being implausible, etc.). This is provided in this pdf document, so we recommend you first have a look at this before using the further files. Furthermore, it could also serve as a template for drafting one’s own FS project.

A glossary of the technical terms used in the book.
