On the comparison of time series using subsampling


  • Maharaj, Elizabeth Ann
  • Alonso Fernández, Andrés Modesto


In this paper we propose a procedure based on the subsampling techniques for the comparison of stationary time series that are not necessarily independent. We study a test based on the Euclidean distance between the autocorrelation functions of two series. Consistency of the proposed method is established. We present a Monte Carlo study with the size and the power of the proposed test.
