A New Estimation Technique for AR(1) Model with Long-tailed Symmetric Innovations

In recent years, it is seen in many time series applications that innovations are non-normal. In this situation, it is known that the least squares (LS) estimators are neither efficient nor robust and maximum likelihood (ML) estimators can only be obtained numerically which might be problematic. The estimation problem is considered newly through different distributions by the use of modified maximum likelihood (MML) estimation technique which assumes the shape parameter to be known. This becomes a drawback in machine data processing where the underlying distribution cannot be determined but assumed to be a member of a broad class ofdistributions. Therefore, in this study, the shape parameter is assumed to be unknown and the MML technique is combined with Huber’s estimation procedure to estimate the model parameters of autoregressive (AR) models of order 1, named as adaptive modified maximum likelihood (AMML) estimation. After the derivation of the AMML estimators, their efficiency and robustness properties are discussed through simulation study and compared with both MML and LS estimators. Besides, two test statistics for significance of the model are suggested. Both criterion and efficiency robustness properties of the test statistics are discussed, and comparisons with the corresponding MML and LS test statistics are given. Finally, the estimation procedure is generalized to AR(q) models.

Adaptive inference of autoregressive models under nonnormality
Yentür, Begüm; Dener Akkaya, Ayşen.; Department of Statistics (2019)
Recently, non-normal innovations in autoregressive models have become prevalent in many applications. In this case, it is known that the least squares (LS) estimators are neither efficient nor robust. Also, obtaining maximum likelihood (ML) estimators requires numerical solution which is a formidable task. To overcome these difficulties modified maximum likelihood (MML) estimation technique is used to obtain the estimators of the model parameters. In this method, although explicit solution can be found, the...
A Self-Cloning Agents Based Model for High-Performance Mobile-Cloud Computing
Angın, Pelin; Jin, Zhongjun (2015-07-02)
The rise of the mobile-cloud computing paradigm in recent years has enabled mobile devices with processing power and battery life limitations to achieve complex tasks in real-time. While mobile-cloud computing is promising to overcome the limitations of mobile devices for real-time computing, the lack of frameworks compatible with standard technologies and techniques for dynamic performance estimation and program component relocation makes it harder to adopt mobile-cloud computing at large. Most of the avai...
Use of spatial four-bar mechanism for the synthesis of mechanisms with large dwell
Söylemez, Eres; Parlaktas, V (2004-04-04)
In several design applications there is a need for mechanisms having long periods of dwell. If the output is to remain completely stationary cam, geneva or intermittent gear mechanisms are used. When an approximate dwell is sufficient, this is usually achieved by mechanisms with lower kinematic pairs or with cycloidal motion mechanisms utilizing gear pairs. There exists several examples in the literature where a cam is conveniently replaced by a six-link planar dwell mechanism. However, in cases where large...
Estimation of AR(1) Model Having Generalized Logistic Disturbances
Akkaya, Ayşen (null; 2020-01-02)
Non-normality is becoming a common feature in real life applications. Using non-normal disturbances in autoregressive models induces non-linearity in the likelihood equations so that maximum likelihood estimators cannot be derived analytically. Thus, modified maximum likelihood estimation (MMLE) technique is introduced in literature to overcome this difficulty. However, this method assumes the shape parameter to be known which is not realistic in real life. Recently, for unknown shape parameter case, adapti...
A SoHo router implementation on Motorola MCF5272 processor and uCLinux operating system
Kaçar, Mehmet Nazir; Bazlamaçcı, Cüneyt Fehmi; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
Recently, various special purpose processors have been developed and are frequently being used for different specialized tasks. Prominent among these are the communication processors, which are generally used within an embedded system environment. Such processors can run relatively advanced and general purpose operating systems such as uCLinux, which is a freely available embedded Linux distribution. In this work, a prototype SoHo (Small office / Home office) router is designed and implemented using Motorol...
