Note the route to treating problems where one does not have estimating functions differentiable with respect to the parameter of interest. Here the variable in question is discrete. However, by suitably increasing the noise a "resonance" can be set up making the signal apparent. Resonance may be a very important phenomenon scientifically. It has, for example, been proposed as a possible explanation for the ice ages. Consistency and rate of convergence results are available. An information formulation can proceed as follows. Prom the semimartingale representation say, derived from 4.

Asymptotically, G P 2 and Ip are maximized for the same p. But it seems that the periodogram based approach is still appropriate. As a general conclusion, it seems profitable to think about statistical problems in a setting of maximizing an information. I see this as an important unifying principle. Box, G. Davidson, J.

The review is to a large extent based on two papers Barndorff-Nielsen and Shephard a,b where more detailed information may be found. See also Barndorff-Nielsen and Shephard c,d,e. The models in question aim to incorporate one or more of the main stylised features of financial series, be they stock prices, foreign exchange rates or interest rates. A summary of these stylised features, and a comparison with related empirical findings in the study of turbulence, is given in Section 3.

In fact, the intriguing similarities between finance and turbulence have given rise to a new field of study coined 'econophysics'. The study of such processes, as part of probability theory generally, is currently attracting a great deal of attention, see Bertoin , , Sato , Barndorff-Nielsen, Mikosch and Resnick , and references given there. It is by now well recognised that Brownian motion generally provides a poor description of log price processes of stocks and other financial assets.

Merely changing from Brownian motion to another, more suitable, Levy process does not, however, provide a modelling of the important quasi long range dependencies cf. Section 3 that pervades the financial markets. But such dependencies may be captured by further use of Levy processes, as innovation processes driving volatility processes in the framework of SV Stochastic Volatility models. Discrete time models of this kind were considered in Barndorff-Nielsen b. That approach has since been developed, in joint work with Neil Shephard, into the continuous time setting, and the rest of the present note consists mainly in a summary of that work Barndorff-Nielsen and Shephard a,b; cf.

Because of its role in 2. Barndorff-Nielsen b. However, even processes with real long range dependence can be constructed in this way Barndorff-Nielsen Finally, the so-called leverage effect see Section 3 can be modelled by adding an extra term in equation 2. The features are widely recognized as being esssential for understanding and modelling within these two, quite different, subject areas. In finance the observational series concerned consist of values of assets such as stocks or logarithmic stock returns or exchange rates, while in wind turbulence the series typically give the velocities or velocity derivatives or differences , in the mean wind direction of a large Reynolds number wind field.

For some typical examples of empirical probability densities of logarithmic asset returns, on the one hand, and velocity differences in large Reynolds number wind fields, on the other, see, for instance, Eberlein and Keller and Shephard , respectively Barndorff-Nielsen a. A very characteristic trait of time series from turbulence as well as finance is that there seems to be a kind of switching regime between periods of relatively small random fluctuations and periods of high 'activity'.

For detailed and informative discussions of the concepts of intermittency and energy dissipation, see Frisch Stylised features. The generalised hyperbolic laws exhibit this type of behaviour. Velocity differences in turbulence show an inherent asymmetry consistent with Kolmogorov's modified theory of homogeneous high Reynolds number turbulence cf. Barndorff-Nielsen, Distributions of financial asset returns are generally rather close to being symmetric around 0, but for stocks there is a tendency towards asymmetry stemming from the fact that the equity market is prone to react differently to positive as opposed to negative LEVY MODELLING 29 returns, cf.

This reaction pattern, or at least part of it, is referred to as a 'leverage effect' whereby increased volatility tends to be associated with negative returns. By aggregational Gaussianity is meant the fact that long term aggregation of financial asset returns, in the sense of summing the returns over longer periods, will lead to approximately normally distributed variates, and similarly in the turbulence context2. For illustrations of this, see for instance Eberlein and Keller and Barndorff-Nielsen a. The estimated autocorrelation functions based on log price differences on stocks or currencies are generally closely consistent with an assumption of zero autocorrelation.

Nevertheless, this type of financial data exhibit 'quasi long range dependence' which manifests itself inter alia in the empirical autocorrelation functions of the absolute values or the squares of the returns, which stay positive for many lags. For discussions of scaling phenomena in turbulence we refer to Frisch As regards finance, see Barndorff-Nielsen and Prause and references given there. In finance, Burgers' equation has turned up in work by Hodges and Carverhill and Hodges and Selby However, the interpretation of the equation in finance does not appear to have any relation to the role of the equation in turbulence.

Taylor Department of Statistics The University of Georgia Athens, GA Abstract A dependent bootstrap is shown to produce estimators which have smaller variances but which are still consistent and asymptotically valid.

Simulated confidence intervals are used to examine possible gains in coverage probabilities and interval lengths. The use of independent models is prevalent in bootstrapping. Efron introduced the bootstrap as a tool to estimate the standard error of a statistic, and an enormous amount of applied and theoretical research on the bootstrap technique has followed in the past two decades. While much of this ensuing research has been methodological adaptions and theoretical validity verifications for different statistics, considerable research has been directed toward shortcomings and possible improvements to the basic bootstrap technique.

The traditional resampling of the sample observations with replacement produces independent and identically distributed bootstrap random variables conditional on the original sample , and many of the theoretical justifications of the bootstrap procedures are crucially related to techniques involving independent random variables. Resampling without replacement produces dependent random variables actually negatively dependent which are still identically distributed and in fact has the desirable property of exchangeability. The purpose of this paper is to consider some estimation using a form of dependent bootstrapping.

In particular, confidence interval comparisons will be given for the traditional bootstrap procedure and the dependent bootstrap procedure. The majority of research on resampling without replacement has been for application in finite population sampling. Gross introduced the concept and many others Bickel and Freedman, ; Chao and Lo, ; Sitter, ; Booth,Butler and Hall, ; and others have extended this research. In Politis and Romano examined resampling without replacement from a data set to approximate the sampling distribution of a statistic Tn.

Under weak assumptions, they showed that the empirical distribution of the suitably normalized values of the statistic computed for all subsamples of size b from the original data is first order asymptotically valid for the true sampling distribution of Tn. This is a generalization from Wu who studied the same method in the i. Bertail showed second order correctness of this method for an adequately chosen resample size.

Their investigations differ from this proposed research because they sample without replacement from the original data rather than an enriched collection with a fixed number of copies of each observation. Praestgaard and Wellner showed that "ra out of fcn" could allow larger bootstrap sample sizes and some asymptotic results using exchangeability arguments. Babu and Singh and Babu and Bai showed that Edgeworth expansions could be used to obtain approximation results for estimators based on samples drawn without replacement from a finite population.

Their approximation results provide for weak convergence of normalized absolute differences of original sample statistics and bootstrap statistics. This paper will compare the coverage probabilities and lengths of the more generally used bootstrap confidence intervals for the traditional bootstrap and the dependent bootstrap. The formal definition of the dependent bootstrap procedure and the theoretical properties of consistency and asymptotic validity are listed in Section 2. Section 3 provides the description and results of the simulations for the confidence intervals.

Negative dependence includes independence, and the terminology of negative relates to 2. In particular, they showed that the dependent bootstrap produces negatively dependent random variables. The technique of the proof for Theorem 2. Moreover, it is important to observe that required moment conditions in Theorem 2. Finite population versions of these results were also obtained cf: Smith and Taylor For the validity asymptotic normality for the dependent bootstrap a stronger more restrictive form of negative dependence is needed, namely negative association.

Using a combination of exchangeable and negative association results, Patterson, Smith, Taylor, and Bozorgnia obtained the following central limit thoerem for the dependent bootstrap. Moreover, Theorem 2. This result is stated for i. Using the bootstrap samples, the percentile and bootstrap-t confidence intervals were obtained. The same procedure was followed using the traditional bootstrap. The estimated coverage probabilities and average lengths are reported in Tables The results show that for all distributions there is little difference between the coverage probabilities and the lengths of the normal theory CI, the traditional bootstrap and the dependent bootstrap procedure, when the bootstrap-t method of CI computation is used.

However, for the percentile method of confidence interval computation, the dependent bootstrap performs poorly when compared to the traditional bootstrap and the normal theory method cf: Tables This result is to be expected since the variance of the dependent bootstrap mean estimator cf: 2. Thus, an adjustment to the percentile method is needed for the dependent bootstrap confidence intervals to achieve desired coverage probabilities while trying to maintain shorter lengths.

Specifically, since the percentiles are functionally related to the standard deviation, instead of using 3. Laws of large numbers for bootstrapped U-statistics. Planning and Inf.

These tests are based on autoregression rank scores, and extend to the time-series context a method proposed by Jureckova for regression rank scores and regression models with independent observations.

Their asymptotic distributions are derived, and they are shown to coincide with those of classical Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistics, under null hypotheses as well as under contiguous alternatives. Local asymptotic efficiencies are investigated. A Monte Carlo experiment is carried out to illustrate the performance of the proposed tests. Keywords: Autoregressive models, Autoregression quantiles, Autoregression rank scores, Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, Local asymptotic efficiency.

Koul and Saleh , extending to the time-series context Koenker and Bassett 's concept of regression quantiles, defined the a-autoregression quantile for model 1. A crucial property of autoregression rank scores is their autoregressioninvariance, i. Some further algebraic relations between autoregression quantiles and the corresponding autoregression rank scores are provided in Lemma 2.

In the present paper, new tests based on a autoregression rank score version of the traditional Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistic are introduced for model 1. The asymptotic behaviour of these tests is investigated in Section 3, where we show that the limiting distributions of the test statistics coincide with those of the classical Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistics, both under the null hypothesis as under contiguous alternatives.

Our results extend those of Jureckova from regression models to autoregression models. The local asymptotic efficiency of these tests is also investigated. Finally, the performance of the proposed tests is illustrated on simulated AR series with Normal, Laplace and Cauchy innovation densities, respectively.

As for the linear approximation 2. This problem already appears in the classical case of Kolmogorov-Smirnov tests for linear models with independent observations; see Hajek and Sidak , Section VII.

Though more extensive simulations should be undertaken, Table 1 nevertheless indicates that Kolmogorov-Smirnov techniques, especially the onesided, based on nonlinear test statistics, can be expected to beat locally asymptotically optimal tests based on linear statistics.
