Functional-coefficient regression models for nonlinear time series. (English) Zbl 0996.62078
Summary: The local linear regression technique is applied to estimation of functional-coefficient regression models for time series data. The models include threshold autoregressive models and functional-coefficient autoregressive models as special cases but with the added advantages such as depicting finer structure of the underlying dynamics and better postsample forecasting performance. Also proposed are a new bootstrap test for the goodness of fit of models and a bandwidth selector based on newly defined crossvalidatory estimation for the expected forecasting errors. The proposed methodology is data-analytic and of sufficient flexibility to analyze complex and multivariate nonlinear structures without suffering from the “curse of dimensionality”. The asymptotic properties of the proposed estimators are investigated under the \(\alpha\)-mixing condition. Both simulated and real data examples are used for illustration.
