The variance of an integrated process need not diverge to infinity
AbstractFor a process with stationary first differences necessary and sufficient conditions for the variance of the process to be unbounded are given. An example shows that the variance of an integrated process -- while being unbounded -- need not diverge to infinity. Sufficient conditions for the variance of an integrated process to diverge to infinity are provided.
