Testing (Infinitely) Many Zero Restrictions

  title={Testing (Infinitely) Many Zero Restrictions},
  author={Jonathan B. Hill},
  journal={arXiv: Statistics Theory},
We present a max-test statistic for testing (possibly infinitely) many zero parameter restrictions in a general parametric regression framework. The test statistic is based on estimating the key parameters one at a time in many models of possibly vastly smaller dimension than the original model, and choosing the largest in absolute value from these individually estimated parameters. Under mild conditions the parsimonious models identify whether the original parameter of interest is or is not…

Edgeworth correction by bootstrap in autoregressions

We prove that the distribution of least-squares estimates in autoregressions can be bootstrapped with accuracy $o(n^{-1/2})$ a.s., thereby improving the normal approximation error of $O(n^{-1/2})$.

Simulation and the Asymptotics of Optimization Estimators

A general central limit theorem is proved for estimators defined by minimization of the length of a vector-valued, random criterion function. No smoothness assumptions are imposed on the criterion

High-Frequency Financial Econometrics

This book is fundamentally about the estimation of risk. At an intuitive level, risk is easy to understand: given an asset with a current price of say $100, what is the likelihood that at some future

Minimax and Adaptive Prediction for Functional Linear Regression

This article considers minimax and adaptive prediction with functional predictors in the framework of functional linear model and reproducing kernel Hilbert space and proposes an easily implementable data-driven roughness regularization predictor that is shown to attain the optimal rate of convergence adaptively without the need of knowing the covariance kernel.

Gaussian Approximation for High Dimensional Time Series

This work considers the problem of approximating sums of high-dimensional stationary time series by Gaussian vectors, using the framework of functional dependence measure, and considers an estimator for long-run covariance matrices and study its convergence properties.

Testing When a Parameter Is on the Boundary of the Maintained Hypothesis

This paper considers testing problems where several of the standard regularity conditions fail to hold. We consider the case where (i) parameter vectors in the null hypothesis may lie on the boundary
