Structural Change and Time Series Analysis

  • Lyle D. Broemeling


This investigation introduces changing-parameter ARMA processes as a way to model a time series. Many time series exhibit a changing trend or a changing autocorrelation structure; that is to say, they have certain nonstationary characteristics that cannot be modeled by the usual ARMA representation. The analysis of a changing parameter process is accomplished by a Bayesian approach, where the posterior distributions of the parameters are derived, and the analysis is illustrated with a moving average model that has a changing autocorrelation function.
