Parameter Estimation for Lévy-Driven Continuous-Time Linear Models with Tapered Data

  • Mamikon S. GinovyanEmail author


The paper is concerned with the statistical parametric estimation of a vector spectral parameter for Lévy-driven continuous-time stationary linear models with tapered data. As an estimator for unknown parameter we consider the Whittle estimator based on tapered data. Consistency and asymptotic normality of the estimator are established.
