Overview

Wold's decomposition theorem


Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A result stating that every zero-mean covariance stationary stochastic process Yt can be decomposed into a deterministic part and a non-deterministic part; the deterministic part is the optimal linear predictor of Yt based on its lagged values and is uncorrelated with the non-deterministic part, which, in its turn, can be represented as an infinite moving-average process.
