Bayesian Estimation of the Spectral Density of a Time Series


This article describes a Bayesian approach to estimating the spectral density of a stationary time series. A nonparametric prior on the spectral density is described through Bernstein polynomials. Because the actual likelihood is very complicated, a pseudoposterior distribution is obtained by updating the prior using the Whittle likelihood. A Markov chain… (More)
