Recent econometrics is not satisfied with these results but exploits faster convergence rates to more complex distributions in the case of nonstationary processes. These results, however, will only be introduced in Part III of the book. 2 Sequential Stochastic Models and Asymptotics In Chapter 1, we considered a statistical model {X n , , Pnθ } for which the sample size n was fixed. We now move to the case when the sample size n goes to infinity. A compatibility condition is obviously necessary: if n < n , then Pnθ must be the marginal probability of X n derived from Pnθ defined on X n .

First, we will derive the conditional model as a byproduct of the joint model, but in practice the conditional model is often directly specified and the underlying joint model is not explicitly defined. ,n be the sample. It is assumed that, for each observation i, xi can be partitioned into (yi , z i ) with respective dimensions p and q (with p + q = m). ,n . Moreover, the space X is factorized into Y × Z with yi ∈ Y and z i ∈ Z . This splitting of x facilitates the presentation, but in some examples, yi and z i are two functions 13:56 P1: OSO/OVY P2: OSO/OVY QC: OSO/OVY T1: OSO Ecoeok CUFX117-Florens 0521876407 April 22, 2007 Statistical Models 11 of xi defining a bijective (one-to-one and onto) mapping between xi and the pair (yi , z i ).

Xi−1 . 2). The Markovian model is then homogeneous. The next question asks under which conditions is such a model stationary. Let us consider first the case r = 1. One can show easily enough that this model is stationary if and only if the distributions of x1 and x2 are identical. 3) where we assume for simplicity that the dominating measure is Lebesgue measure. 3) admits a solution f 0 , then the Markovian model has a stationary solution. In this case, if the distribution of x1 is given by the density f 0 , then the model will be stationary.
