A robust algorithm for parameter estimation in smooth transition autoregressive models
Finding a precise estimate for the smoothness parameter of LSTAR models is notoriously difficult. This paper introduces a robust estimation method for the transition and autoregressive parameters of STAR models, comprising gradient descent and singular value decomposition to account for heteroscedastic noise.
