4 Autoregressive Model AR(1) AR(1) Y t Y t-1 e t where Y t is Y t Y t-1 AR(p) Y t Y t-1 Y t-2 p Y t-1 e t

5 AR(1) Stationary | –OLS Regression Estimators – Stationary case –Mann and Wald (1940s) : For | More exciting algebra coming up ……

6 AR(1) Stationary | –OLS Regression Estimators – Stationary case (1)Same limit if sample mean replaced by AR(p) Multivariate Normal Limits

7 | | Y t Y t-1 e t Y t-2 e t-1 e t e t e t-1 e t-2 … k-1 e t-k+1 k Y t-k Y t converges for Var{Y t } Var{Y t } But if, then Y t Y t-1 e t, a random walk. Y t Y 0 e t e t-1 e t-2 … e 1 Var Y t Y 0 t Var Y t Y 0 t Y t Y 0 Y t Y 0

11 Nonstationary Recall stationary results: Note: all results independent of

14 Denominator For n Observations: (eigenvalues are reciprocals of each other)

15 Results: Graph of and limit : e T A n e = n -2 e T A n e =

16 Histograms for n=50:

17 Theory 1: Donskers Theorem (pg. 68, 137 Billingsley) {e t } an iid(0, ) sequence S n = e 1 +e 2 + …+e n X(t,n) = S [nt] /(n 1/2 )=S n normalized (n=100)

18 Theory 1: Donskers Theorem (pg. 137 Billingsley) Donsker: X(t,n) converges in law to W(z), a Wiener Process plots of X(t,n) versus z= t/n for n=20, 100, realizations of X(t,100) vs. z=t/n

19 Theory 2: Continuous mapping theorem (Billingsley pg. 72) h( ) a continuous functional => h( X(t,n) ) h(W(t)) For our estimators, and so…… Distribution is …. ???????

20 Extension 1: Add a mean (intercept) New quadratic forms. New distributions Estimator independent of Y 0

21 Extension 2: Add linear trend New quadratic forms. New distributions Regress Y t on 1, t, Y t-1 annihilates Y 0, t

22 The 6 Distributions coefficient n( j -1) t test f(t) = 0 mean trend

23 pr< f(t) (1,t) percentiles, n=50 pr< f(t) (1,t) percentiles, limit

24 Higher Order Models characteristic eqn. roots 0.5, 0.8 ( < 1) note: (1-.5)(1-.8) = -0.1 stationary: nonstationary

25 Higher Order Models- General AR(2) roots: (m )( m ) = m 2 m AR(2): ( Y t ) = ( Y t-1 ) ( Y t-2 ) + e t nonstationary (0 if unit root) t test same as AR(1). Coefficient requires modification t test N(0,1) !!

26 Tests Regress: on (1, t)Y t-1 ( ADF test ) ( ) augmenting affects limit distn. does not affect These coefficients normal! |
