We study inference on the common stochastic trends in a non-stationary, N -variate time series yt, in the possible presence of heavy tails. We propose a novel methodology which does not require any knowledge or estimation of the tail index, or even knowledge as to whether certain moments (such as the variance) exist or not, and develop an estimator of the number of stochastic trendsm based on the eigenvalues of the sample second moment matrix of yt. We study the rates of such eigenvalues… Expand

UNIT ROOT INFERENCE FOR NON-STATIONARY LINEAR PROCESSES DRIVEN BY INFINITE VARIANCE INNOVATIONS
The contribution of this paper is two-fold. First, we derive the asymptotic null distribution of the familiar augmented Dickey-Fuller [ADF] statistics in the case where the shocks follow a linearExpand
Inference in heavy-tailed vector error correction models
Abstract This paper first studies the full rank least squares estimator (FLSE) of the heavy-tailed vector error correction (VEC) models. It is shown that the rate of convergence of the FLSE relatedExpand
Testing for Common Trends
Abstract Cointegrated multiple time series share at least one common trend. Two tests are developed for the number of common stochastic trends (i.e., for the order of cointegration) in a multipleExpand

Testing for randomness in a random coefficient autoregression model
Abstract We propose a test to discern between an ordinary autoregressive model, and a random coefficient one. To this end, we develop a full-fledged estimation theory for the variances of theExpand
Testing for (in)finite moments
This paper proposes a test to verify whether the kth moment of a random variable is finite. We use the fact that, under general assumptions, sample moments either converge to a finite number orExpand
A Class of Simple Semiparametrically Efficient Rank-Based Unit Root Tests
We propose a class of simple rank-based tests for the null hypothesis of a unit root. This class is indexed by the choice of a reference density g, which needs not coincide with the unknown actualExpand
