Estimation of a stationary multivariate ARFIMA process

Kévin Stanislas Mbeke, Ouagnina Hili


In this note, we consider an m-dimensional stationary multivariate long memory ARFIMA (AutoRegressive Fractionally Integrated Moving Average) process, which is defined as : A(L)D(L) (y1(t),...,ym(t))' = B(L) (1(t),..., m(t))', where M' denotes the transpose of the matrix M. We determine the minimum Hellinger distance estimator (MHDE) of the parameters of a stationary multivariate long memory ARFIMA. This method is based on the minimization of the Hellinger distance between the random function of fn(.) and a theoretical probability density fθ(.). We establish, under some assumptions, the almost sure convergence of the estimator and its asymptotic normality.
