STATISTICS 4005 ASSIGNMENT 3 Due date: February 26, 2004 1. Consider the AR(2) process Z t = 0 . 7 Z t - 1 - 0 . 12 Z t - 2 + a t where a t ’s are independently, identically distributed as N (0 , 1). (a) Find the autocovariances γ 0 , γ 1 and γ 2 . (b) Is the process { Z t } stationary? Why? (c) By considering the following recursive formula P k = A P k - 1 where P k = " ρ k ρ k - 1 # , A = " 0 . 7 - 0 . 12 1 0 # , derive the general form of the autocorrelation function ρ k for k = 0 , 1 , 2 , 3 ,... 2. (a) Find the range of b so that the following AR(2) process Z t = Z t - 1 + b Z t - 2 + a t is stationary, where { a t } is a white noise process. (b) Find the autocorrelations ρ 1 and ρ 2 for part (a) when b = - 0 . 5. 3. Suppose that a random process { X t } ( t = 0 , ± 1 , ± 2 ,... ) is defined by X t - 0 . 6 X t - 1 = Z t + 0 . 4 Z t - 1 where { Z t } is a white noise process with V ar ( Z t ) = 1 and Z t is independent of X t - 1 ,X t - 2 ,... . (a) Find the values of
