This paper focuses on the time series generated by the event counts of stationary Hawkes processes. When the exact locations of points are not observed, but only counts over time intervals of fixed size, existing methods of estimation are not applicable. We first establish a strong mixing condition with polynomial decay rate for Hawkes processes, from their Poisson cluster structure. This allows us to propose a spectral approach to the estimation of Hawkes processes, based on Whittle's method… Expand
Interval-censored Hawkes processes
The Mean Behavior Poisson (MBP) process is defined, a novel Poisson process with a direct parameter correspondence to the popular self-exciting Hawkes process and it is shown that on real-world datasets that the MBP process outperforms HIP for the task of popularity prediction. Expand


An estimation procedure for the Hawkes process
In this paper, we present a nonparametric estimation procedure for the multivariate Hawkes point process. The timeline is cut into bins and—for each component process—the number of points in each binExpand
Functional central limit theorems for stationary Hawkes processes and application to infinite-server queues
A functional central limit theorem is proved for stationary Hawkes processes in the asymptotic regime where the baseline intensity is large and the limit is a non-Markovian Gaussian process with dependent increments. Expand
Locally stationary Hawkes processes
This paper addresses the generalization of stationary Hawkes processes in order to allow for a time-evolving second-order analysis. Motivated by the concept of locally stationary autoregressiveExpand
A self‐normalized approach to confidence interval construction in time series
We propose a new method to construct confidence intervals for quantities that are associated with a stationary time series, which avoids direct estimation of the asymptotic variances. Unlike theExpand
The Hawkes process with renewal immigration & its estimation with an EM algorithm
Two EM algorithms are introduced: the first extends the existing EM algorithm for the Hawkes process to consider renewal immigration, and the second reduces the amount of missing data, considering only if a point is an immigrant or not as missing data. Expand
Absolute regularity and Brillinger-mixing of stationary point processes
We study the following problem: How to verify Brillinger-mixing of stationary point processes in $$ {{\mathbb{R}}^d} $$ by imposing conditions on a suitable mixing coefficient? For this, we define anExpand
Exact and approximate EM estimation of mutually exciting hawkes processes
Motivated by the availability of continuous event sequences that trace the social behavior in a population e.g. email, we believe that mutually exciting Hawkes processes provide a realistic andExpand
Spectra of some self-exciting and mutually exciting point processes
SUMMARY In recent years methods of data analysis for point processes have received some attention, for example, by Cox & Lewis (1966) and Lewis (1964). In particular Bartlett (1963a,b) has introducedExpand
Mixing properties and central limit theorem for associated point processes
Positively (resp. negatively) associated point processes are a class of point processes that induce attraction (resp. inhibition) between the points. As an important example, determinantal pointExpand
Hawkes and INAR(∞) processes
In this paper, we discuss integer-valued autoregressive time series (INAR), Hawkes point processes, and their interrelationship. Besides presenting structural analogies, we derive a convergenceExpand
