Graphical models for multivariate Markov chains
The aim of this paper is to provide a graphical representation of the dynamic relations among the marginal processes of a first order multivariate Markov chain. We show how to read Granger-noncausal and contemporaneous independence relations off a particular type of mixed graph, when directed and bi-directed edges are missing. Insights are also provided into the Markov properties with respect to a graph that are retained under marginalization of a multivariate chain. Multivariate logistic models for transition probabilities are associated with the mixed graphs encoding the relevant independencies. Finally, an application on real data illustrates the methodology.
