On the maximum of covariance estimators


  • Jirak, Moritz


Let be a stationary process with mean 0 and finite variances, let [phi]h=E(XkXk+h) be the covariance function and its usual estimator. Under mild weak dependence conditions, the distribution of the vector is known to be asymptotically Gaussian for any , a result having important statistical consequences. Statistical inference requires also determining the asymptotic distribution of the vector for suitable d=dn-->[infinity], but very few results exist in this case. Recently, Wu (2009) [19] obtained tail estimates for the vector for some sequences dn-->[infinity] and used these to construct simultaneous confidence bands for , 1
