Estimation of hurst parameter and minimum variance spectrum

Main Article Content

Joo-Mok Kim


Consider FARIMA time series with innovations that have infinite variances. We are interested in the estimation of self-similarities $H_n$ of FARIMA$(0, d, 0)$ by using modified $R/S$ statistic. We can confirm that the $H_n$ converges to Hurst parameter $H=d+\frac12$. Finally, we figure out ARMA and minimum variance power spectrum density of FARIMA processes.
