# A signed power transformation with application to white noise testing

@inproceedings{Boshnakov2021ASP, title={A signed power transformation with application to white noise testing}, author={Georgi N. Boshnakov and Davide Ravagli}, year={2021} }

We show that signed power transforms of some ARCH-type processes give ARCHtype processes. The class of ARCH-type models for which this property holds contains many common ARCH and GARCH models. The results can be useful in testing for white noise when fourth moments don’t exist and detecting white noise that is not ARCH-type.

A new family of power transformations to improve normality or symmetry

- Mathematics

SUMMARY We introduce a new power transformation family which is well defined on the whole real line and which is appropriate for reducing skewness and to approximate normality. It has properties…

The sample autocorrelations of heavy-tailed processes with applications to ARCH

We study the sample ACVF and ACF of a general stationary sequence under a weak mixing condition and in the case that the marginal distributions are regularly varying. This includes linear and…

NONLINEARITY OF ARCH AND STOCHASTIC VOLATILITY MODELS AND BARTLETT'S FORMULA

We review some notions of linearity of time series and show that ARCH or stochastic volatility (SV) processes are not only non-linear: they are not even weakly linear, i.e., they do not even have a…

Diagnostic Checking in ARMA Models With Uncorrelated Errors

We consider tests for lack of fit in ARMA models with nonindependent innovations. In this framework, the standard Box–Pierce and Ljung–Box portmanteau tests can perform poorly. Specifically, the…

Inference for Autocorrelations under Weak Assumptions

Abstract In this article we consider the large-sample behavior of estimates of autocorrelations and autoregressive moving average (ARMA) coefficients, as well as their distributions, under weak…

The Gaussian mixture transition distribution model is generalized to the mixture autoregressive (MAR) model for the modelling of non‐linear time series and appears to capture features of the data better than other competing models do.

A new way of sampling from the posterior distribution of the parameters of MAR models which allows for covering the complete parameter space of the models, unlike previous approaches is introduced.
