Quasi-likelihood estimation for semimartingales
AbstractA technique of parameter estimation for a semimartingale based on the maximization of a likelihood type function is proposed. This technique is shown to be optimal in the sense of Godambe within a certain class of estimating equations. The resulting estimators are shown to be consistent and asymptotically normally distributed on certain events under relatively weak assumptions.
