Abstract

In high frequency financial data not only returns but also waiting times between trades are random variables. In this work, we analyze the spectra of the waiting-time processes for tick-by-tick trades. The numerical problem, strictly related with the real inversion of Laplace transforms, is analyzed by using Tikhonov's regularization method. We also analyze these spectra by a rough method using a comb of Dirac's delta functions.
