Threshold Models in Non-linear Time Series Analysis by Howell Tong (auth.)

In the final years or so, i used to be such a lot lucky in being given possibilities of lecturing on a brand new technique to numerous audiences in Britain, China, Finland, France and Spain. regardless of my nearly Confucian perspective of who prefer speaking (i.e. a temporary list) to writing (i.e. an enduring record), the nice and cozy encouragement of pals has resulted in the consequent notes. i'm additionally merely too aware of the infancy of the method brought in those notes. even if, it really is my honest desire that publicity to a much wider viewers will speed up its adulthood. Readers are assumed to be accustomed to the fundamental conception of time sequence research. The ebook by means of Professor M.B. Priestley (1981) can be used as a basic reference. bankruptcy One is addressed to the overall query: "why will we want non-linear time sequence models?" After describing a few major merits of linear types, it singles out a number of significant boundaries of linearity. after all, the choice displays my own view at the topic, that is simply at its very starting, even though there does appear to be a basic contract within the literature that point irr'eversibility and restrict cycles are one of the such a lot obvious.

After five decades of domination by liAear Gaussian models. the time is certainly ripe for a serious study of ways of removing the many limitations of these models. Once we decide to incorporate features in addition to the autocovariances. the class of models would have to be greatly enlarged to include those besides the Gaussian ARMA models. We may either retain the general ARMA framework and allow the white noise to be non-Gaussian. or we may completely abandon the linearity assumption. In the former case.

1) dt I'lhere I and H are parameters of the ship's rudder, 14(-~o) = -Mo. 2) where b is a constant and Z is defined by Z(n) = { -1 for n > 0, +1 for n < O. Zero is the threshold. Of course, in contrast to the situation in example (i), the object of the exercise here is to investigate operating conditions under which no limit cycles exist in the phase diagram of ($, d$/dt). 3). 3). That is, the situation described in (ii) is quite typical of servo-systems. It may also be noted that the analysis can be extended to the case where the Z function contains hysteresis.

That is. We call ~in [YO Pj2/var{E{XtIXt_j)}] the second order index of J£Z linearity. When var{E{XtIXt_j)} to this is defined to be 1. = 0 for some j. the ratio of Yo Pj2 Let this index be denoted by~. It involves only the bivariate distribution. and 0 sl sLIt may be roughly interpreted as a practical measure of how close the probabilistic structure of {X t } is to normality (see Tong. 1982a). It is one if but not only if {X t } is a stationary Gaussian sequence. It is pertinent to recall the more general result (Brillinger.
