 Introduction and Motivations

Show Summary Details


Reviews the standard parametric or semi‐parametric methods (Maximum Likelihood, Pseudo‐Maximum Likelihood, GMM). Then, considers models in which the likelihood function or the conditional moments do not admit a tractable form. Finally, describes a general non‐linear framework in which path simulations or conditional simulations will be useful.

Keywords: conditional simulations; Generalized Method of Moments; Maximum Likelihood; path simulations; Pseudo‐Maximum Likelihood
