Nonlinear and nonstationary models

Show Summary Details


Long memory, unit root models and cointegration are important in linear modelling of nonstationary processes, not the least in econometrics. Recently, nonlinear generalizations of these concepts have been attempted. The framework is mathematically demanding, requiring tools that can handle both nonstationarity and nonlinearity. Two such tools are local times and null recurrent Markov chains. These are reviewed in parametric and non‐parametric cases.

Keywords: long memory; unit root; cointegration; nonlinear regression; nonstationary regression; nonparametric estimation; nonstationarity
