ARCH and GARCH Models Using dependence of as motivation, Engle (1982) suggested the ARCH(q) model % 2 t % ttt œ2 a È â t01 q 22 t1 tq αα % α %  , where a 's independent and identically distributed random variables with mean 0 and t variance 1. There are certain conditions on 's that need to be satisfied for 0, that is, 0 for it i 2 i 0, ,q. œá Note that in the above, since , the conditional variance is a function of the past %. œ]  values of series as well. ] t Thus, given history H , the volatility equation is an exact function for h . In the above the t mean corrected process is stationary. % t 1
