Since Newton (1642-1727) continuous time modeling by means of differential equations is the standard approach of dynamic phenomena in natural science. [] Key Result Educational research data illustrate and evaluate continuous time modeling of cross-lagged effects by means of different models and methods using SEM.

Continuous time structural equation modeling with R package ctsem
We introduce ctsem, an R package for continuous time structural equation modeling of panel (N > 1) and time series (N = 1) data, using full information maximum likelihood. Most dynamic models (e.g.,
Drawing Conclusions from Cross-Lagged Relationships: Re-Considering the Role of the Time-Interval
The cross-lagged panel model (CLPM), a discrete-time (DT) SEM model, is frequently used to gather evidence for (reciprocal) Granger-causal relationships when lacking an experimental design. However,

A new meta-analysis method (CTmeta) is introduced which assumes an underlying continuous-time process, and is compared with current practice to introduce, describe, and illustrate this method.
Dynamic structural equation models: Estimation and interference.
A unifying theoretical framework for the analysis of dynamic structural equation models in which some or all variables might be unobservable (latent) or measured with error is proposed and such methods can be used to improve measurement of latent variables and to obtain more accurate forecasts.
Bayesian Estimation of a Continuous-Time Model for Discretely-Observed Panel Data
The purpose of this project was to outline a Bayesian implementation of the EDM with non-informative priors and compare its performance to two frequentist approaches—EDM-SEM and Oversampling—under proper model specification and variable experimental conditions.
SEM state space modeling of panel data in discrete and continuous time and its relationship to traditional state space modeling
The state space approach, introduced by Kalman (1960) and Zadeh and Desoer (1963), distinguishes modern systems and control theory (Cames, 1988; Hannan & Deistler, 1988; Polderman & Willems, 1998)
Continuous‐time modelling of irregularly spaced panel data using a cubic spline model
Continuous‐time modelling remains a somewhat ‘idealized’ representation tool. Even though conceptualizing a dynamic process as a continuous process has clear appeal from a theoretical standpoint,
Discrete- vs. Continuous-Time Modeling of Unequally Spaced Experience Sampling Method Data
It is found that the size and the direction of the bias in DT (V)AR models for unequally spaced ESM data depend quite strongly on the true parameter in addition to data characteristics, which is a problem for discrete-time (DT) modeling approaches.

ABSTRACT Meta-analysis techniques allow researchers to aggregate effect sizes, like standardized regression estimates, of different studies. Recently, continuous-time meta-analysis (CTmeta) has been
A Continuous-Time Mixture Latent-State-Trait Markov Model for Experience Sampling Data: Application and Evaluation
In psychological research, statistical models of latent state-trait (LST) theory are popular for the analysis of longitudinal data. We identify several limitations of available models when applied to

Problems with the estimation of stochastic differential equations using structural equations models
The present paper deals with the identification and maximum likelihood estimation of systems of linear stochastic differential equations using panel data. So we only have a sample of discrete
Linear Stochastic Differential Equation Models for Panel Data with Unobserved Variables
Since Coleman (1968), sociologists have increasingly used differential equation models to analyze continuous dependent variables over time. Current applications of these models include, for example,

Although it is only during the last decade that continuous-time models have been extensively used in applied econometric work, the development of statistical methods applicable to such models
Putting the individual back into individual growth curves.
An Mx script for fitting individual data vector-based LGC models is provided and issues regarding the interpretation of within- and between-persons effects of time that parallel those associated with centering of predictor variables in MLM are illustrated.
Using covariance structure analysis to detect correlates and predictors of individual change over time
Recently, methodologists have shown how two disparate conceptual arenas—individual growth modeling and covariance structure analysis—can be integrated. The integration brings the flexibility of
Simultaneous Analysis of Longitudinal Data From Several Cohorts
A number of different research designs for data collection, analysis, and interpretation has been proposed for the study of developmental change (see e.g., Baltes, 1968; Schaie, 1965, 1977; Schaie

Continuous-time econometrics has come of age
In economic theory, the tool commonly used for the analysis of dynamic models is differential equations, thus implicitly implying the assumption of continuous time. This (usually implicit) assumption
