Pseudo Maximum Likelihood and Moments Estimators for Some Ergodic Diffusions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


When \(\left (X_t\right )_{t\geq 0}\) is an ergodic process, the density function of Xt converges to some invariant density as t →∞. We will compute and study some asymptotic properties of pseudo moments estimators obtained from this invariant density, for a specific class of ergodic processes. In this class of processes we can find the Cox-Ingersoll & Ross or Dixit & Pindyck processes, among others. A comparative study of the proposed estimators with the usual estimators obtained from discrete approximations of the likelihood function will be carried out.
