About this book

This work is an overview of statistical inference in stationary, discrete time stochastic processes. Results in the last fifteen years, particularly on non-Gaussian sequences and semi-parametric and non-parametric analysis have been reviewed. The first chapter gives a background of results on martingales and strong mixing sequences, which enable us to generate various classes of CAN estimators in the case of dependent observations. Topics discussed include inference in Markov chains and extension of Markov chains such as Raftery's Mixture Transition Density model and Hidden Markov chains and extensions of ARMA models with a Binomial, Poisson, Geometric, Exponential, Gamma, Weibull, Lognormal, Inverse Gaussian and Cauchy as stationary distributions. It further discusses applications of semi-parametric methods of estimation such as conditional least squares and estimating functions in stochastic models. Construction of confidence intervals based on estimating functions is discussed in some detail. Kernel based estimation of joint density and conditional expectation are also discussed. Bootstrap and other resampling procedures for dependent sequences such as Markov chains, Markov sequences, linear auto-regressive moving average sequences, block based bootstrap for stationary sequences and other block based procedures are also discussed in some detail. This work can be useful for researchers interested in knowing developments in inference in discrete time stochastic processes. It can be used as a material for advanced level research students.

About the authors

M. B. Rajarshi received his Ph.D. in 1978 from the University of Pune, India. His research interests include inference for stochastic processes, applied probability and stochastic modeling. He has published about 35 papers in these areas mostly in international journals. Dr Rajarshi retired in 2009 from the University of Pune as a Professor of Statistics. He has held visiting appointments at Pennsylvania State University (USA), University of Waterloo and Memorial University of Newfoundland (Canada). He was the Chief Editor of the Journal of the Indian Statistical Association (2000-2006). He was elected as a Member of the International Statistical Institute (1998) and at present is the President of the India Chapter of the International Indian Statistician Association.
