Statistics for diffusion processes with low and high-frequency observations

In this thesis, we consider the problem of nonparametric estimation of the diffusion coefficients of a scalar time-homogeneous Itô diffusion process from discrete observations under various sampling

The estimation of the diffusion matrix $\Sigma$ of a high-dimensional, possibly time-changed L\'evy process is studied, based on discrete observations of the process with a fixed distance. A low-rank

Adaptive invariant density estimation for ergodic diffusions over anisotropic classes

Consider some multivariate diffusion process X = (Xt)t≥0 with unique invariant probability measure and associated invariant density ρ, and assume that a continuous record of observations X =

Spectral thresholding for the estimation of Markov chain transition operators

We consider nonparametric estimation of the transition operator $P$ of a Markov chain and its transition density $p$ where the singular values of $P$ are assumed to decay exponentially fast. This is

Inheritance of strong mixing and weak dependence under renewal sampling

Let X be a continuous-time strongly mixing or weakly dependent process and let T be a renewal process independent of X. We show general conditions under which the sampled process

Statistical inference in high-dimensional matrix models

This thesis exemplarily considers three matrix models, matrix completion, Principal Component Analysis (PCA) with Gaussian data and transition operators of Markov chains, and investigates the existence of adaptive confidence sets in the ’Bernoulli’ and ’trace-regression’ models.

Nonparametric volatility estimation in scalar diffusions: Optimality across observation frequencies

The nonparametric volatility estimation problem of a scalar diffusion process observed at equidistant time points is addressed. Using the spectral representation of the volatility in terms of the

Scale invariant volatility estimation in scalar diffusions

We study nonparametric volatility estimation of a scalar diffusion process observed at equidistant time points. We use the spectral representation of the volatility in terms of the invariant density

Adaptive confidence bands for Markov chains and diffusions: Estimating the invariant measure and the drift

As a starting point we prove a functional central limit theorem for estimators of the invariant measure of a geometrically ergodic Harris-recurrent Markov chain in a multi-scale space. This allows to



Nonparametric estimation of scalar diffusions based on low frequency data

We study the problem of estimating the coefficients of a diffusion (X t , t ≥ 0); the estimation is based on discrete data X n Δ, n = 0, 1,..., N. The sampling frequency Δ -1 is constant, and

Estimators of diffusions with randomly spaced discrete observations: A general theory

We provide a general method to analyze the asymptotic properties of a variety of estimators of continuous time diffusion processes when the data are not only discretely sampled in time but the time

The Effects of Random and Discrete Sampling When Estimating Continuous-Time Diffusions

High-frequency financial data are not only discretely sampled in time but the time separating successive observations is often random. We analyze the consequences of this dual feature of the data

Spectral methods for identifying scalar diffusions

Stochastic Population Theory: Diffusion Processes

In the previous contribution we discussed birth and death processes as models of populations subject to random growth. There, the population size at each instant was represented as a discrete random

Nonparametric Bayesian posterior contraction rates for discretely observed scalar diffusions

We consider nonparametric Bayesian inference in a reflected diffusion model $dX_t = b (X_t)dt + \sigma(X_t) dW_t,$ with discretely sampled observations $X_0, X_\Delta, \dots, X_{n\Delta}$. We analyse

A tail inequality for suprema of unbounded empirical processes with applications to Markov chains

We present a tail inequality for suprema of empirical processes generated by variables with finite $\psi_\alpha$ norms and apply it to some geometrically ergodic Markov chains to derive similar

Principal Components and Long Run Implications of Multivariate Diffusions

We investigate a method for extracting nonlinear principal components. These principal components maximize variation subject to smoothness and orthogonality constraints; but we allow for a general

Econometrics of Diffusion Models

We review some of the econometric and statistical methods available to estimate and test continuous-time diffusion models from discrete observations, with a particular emphasis on likelihood methods.
