t , one prefers the invertible solution. Remark 2.3. If { X t } is a stationary solution to the stochastic difference equation Φ(L) X t = Θ(L) Z t with Z t WN(0 , σ 2 ) and if in addition Φ( z )Θ( z ) 6 = 0 for | z | ≤ 1 then X t = X j =0 ψ j Z t - j , Z t = X j =0 π j X t - j , where the coefficients { ψ j } and { π j } are determined for | z | ≤ 1 by Ψ( z ) = Θ( z ) Φ( z ) and Π( z ) = Φ( z ) Θ( z ) , respectively. In this case { X t } is causal and invert- ible with respect to { Z t } . Remark 2.4. If { X t } is an ARMA process with Φ(L) X t = Θ(L) Z t such that Φ( z ) 6 = 0 for | z | = 1 then there exists polynomials ˜ Φ( z ) and ˜ Θ( z ) and a white noise process { ˜ Z t } such that { X t } fulfills the stochastic difference equation ˜ Φ(L) X t = ˜ Θ(L) ˜ Z t and is causal with respect to { ˜ Z t } . If in addition Θ( z ) 6 = 0 for | z | = 1 then ˜ Θ(L) can be chosen such that { X t } is also invertible with respect to { ˜ Z t } (see the discussion of the AR(1) process after the definition of causality and Brockwell and Davis (1991, p. 88)). 2.4 Computation of the autocovariance func- tion of an ARMA process Whereas the autocovariance function summarizes the external and directly observable properties of a time series, the coefficients of the ARMA process give information of its internal structure. Although there exists for each ARMA model a corresponding autocovariance function, the converse is not true as we have seen in Section 1.3 where we showed that two MA(1) pro- cesses are compatible with the same autocovariance function. This brings up a fundamental identification problem. In order to shed some light on the relation between autocovariance function and ARMA models it is necessary

40 CHAPTER 2. ARMA MODELS to be able to compute the autocovariance function for a given ARMA model. In the following, we will discuss three such procedures. Each procedure relies on the assumption that the ARMA process Φ(L) X t = Θ(L) Z t with Z t WN(0 , σ 2 ) is causal with respect to { Z t } . Thus there exists a represen- tation of X t as a weighted sum of current and past Z t ’s: X t = j =0 ψ j Z t - j with j =0 | ψ j | < . 2.4.1 First procedure Starting from the causal representation of { X t } , it is easy to calculate its autocovariance function given that { Z t } is white noise. The exact formula is proved in Theorem (6.4). γ ( h ) = σ 2 X j =0 ψ j ψ j + | h | , where Ψ( z ) = X j =0 ψ j z j = Θ( z ) Φ( z ) for | z | ≤ 1 . The first step consists in determining the coefficients ψ j by the method of undetermined coefficients. This leads to the following system of equations: ψ j - X 0 <k j φ k ψ j - k = θ j , 0 j < max { p, q + 1 } , ψ j - X 0 <k p φ k ψ j - k = 0 , j max { p, q + 1 } . This equation system can be solved recursively (see Section 2.3): ψ 0 = θ 0 = 1 , ψ 1 = θ 1 + ψ 0 φ 1 = θ 1 + φ 1 , ψ 2 = θ 2 + ψ 0 φ 2 + ψ 1 φ 1 = θ 2 + φ 2 + φ 1 θ 1 + φ 2 1 , . . . Alternatively one may view the second part of the equation system as a linear homogeneous difference equation with constant coefficients (see Section 2.3).

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
