The correlation structure of the sample autocovariance function for a particular class of time series with elliptically contoured distribution

Abstract

In the context of time series, the classical estimator of the autocovariance function can be written as a quadratic form of the observations. If data have an elliptically contoured distribution with constant mean, then the correlation between the sample autocovariance function at two different lags is a function of the time design matrix and the covariance matrix of the process. When data have a regular support, an explicit formula for this correlation is available for a particular family of covariance matrices. Surprisingly, this correlation structure is exactly the same as the one for a Gaussian white noise.
