Tempered stable Ornstein-Uhlenbeck processes: a practical view
We study the one-dimensional Ornstein-Uhlenbeck (OU) processes with marginal law given by the tempered stable and tempered infinitely divisible distributions proposed by Rosinski (2007) and Bianchi et al. (2010b), respectively. In general, the use of non-Gaussian OU processes is impeded by difficulty in calibration and simulation. Accordingly, we investigate the law of transition between consecutive observations of OU processes and - with a view to practical applications - evaluate the characteristic function of integrated tempered OU processes in three cases: classical tempered stable, variance gamma, and rapidly decreasing tempered stable. Then we analyze how one can draw a random sample from this class of processes using both the classical inverse transform algorithm and an acceptance-rejection method based on the simulation of a stable random sample. Finally, with a maximum likelihood estimation method based on the fast Fourier transform, we assess the performance of the simulation algorithm empirically.
