Non-normal models

Hi all,

Background-problem: I have time series data which do not follow a normal distribution (according to skewnes and kartosis - or the Jarque-Bera test). The variables are equal to or greater than zero. The residuals are expected to be non-normally distributed.

I assume I need to use non-normal models. Shazam has a rich model-battery for non-normal models (see Chapter 21. Shazam manual). Question: Do the Shazam-expert-team or users of Shazam have any suggesitons of informative literature which could guide the user in the selection or search for the "right" model to model the non-normal distribution?
