Asymptotic Properties of Pseudo Maximum Likelihood Estimates for Multiple Frequency I(1) Processes

Dietmar Bauer, Martin Wagner
2002
In this paper we derive (weak) consistency and the asymptotic distribution of pseudo maximum likelihood estimates for multiple frequency I(1) processes. By multiple frequency I(1) processes we denote processes with unit roots at arbitrary points on the unit circle with the integration orders corresponding to these unit roots all equal to 1. The parameters corresponding to the cointegrating spaces at the different unit roots are estimated super-consistently and have a mixture of Brownian motions

The problem is formulated in the state space framework, using the canonical form and parameterization introduced by Bauer and Wagner (2002b). Therefore the analysis covers vector ARMA processes and is not restricted to autoregressive processes.
