# Representation of Multiplicative Seasonal Vector Autoregressive Moving Average Models

2009-11-01
Time series often contain observations of several variables and multivariate time series models are used to represent the relationship between these variables. There are many studies on vector autoregressive moving average (VARMA) models, but the representation of multiplicative seasonal VARMA models has not been seriously studied. In a multiplicative vector model, such as a seasonal VARMA model, the representation is not unique because of the noncommutative property of matrix multiplication. In this article, we carefully examine the consequences of different model representations on parameter estimation and forecasting through numerical illustrations, simulation, and the analysis of a housing starts and housing sales dataset.

 Estimation and hypothesis testing in multivariate linear regression models under non normality İslam, Muhammed Qamarul (Informa UK Limited, 2017-01-01) This paper discusses the problem of statistical inference in multivariate linear regression models when the errors involved are non normally distributed. We consider multivariate t-distribution, a fat-tailed distribution, for the errors as alternative to normal distribution. Such non normality is commonly observed in working with many data sets, e.g., financial data that are usually having excess kurtosis. This distribution has a number of applications in many other areas of research as well. We use modifie...
 Multiple linear regression model with stochastic design variables İslam, Muhammed Qamarul (Informa UK Limited, 2010-01-01) In a simple multiple linear regression model, the design variables have traditionally been assumed to be non-stochastic. In numerous real-life situations, however, they are stochastic and non-normal. Estimators of parameters applicable to such situations are developed. It is shown that these estimators are efficient and robust. A real-life example is given.
 Regression analysis with a dtochastic design variable Sazak, HS; Tiku, ML; İslam, Muhammed Qamarul (Wiley, 2006-04-01) In regression models, the design variable has primarily been treated as a nonstochastic variable. In numerous situations, however, the design variable is stochastic. The estimation and hypothesis testing problems in such situations are considered. Real life examples are given.
 Marginalized transition random effect models for multivariate longitudinal binary data İlk Dağ, Özlem (Wiley, 2007-03-01) Generalized linear models with random effects and/or serial dependence are commonly used to analyze longitudinal data. However, the computation and interpretation of marginal covariate effects can be difficult. This led Heagerty (1999, 2002) to propose models for longitudinal binary data in which a logistic regression is first used to explain the average marginal response. The model is then completed by introducing a conditional regression that allows for the longitudinal, within-subject, dependence, either...
 Linear contrasts in experimental design with non-identical error distributions Senoglu, B; Tiku, ML (Wiley, 2002-01-01) Estimation of linear contrasts in experimental design, and testing their assumed values, is considered when the error distributions from block to block are not necessarily identical. The normal-theory solutions are shown to have low efficiencies as compared to the solutions presented here.
