讲座题目:Theory and Practice on Semiparametric ModelAveraging for Nonlinear Time Series Forecasting

主讲人:卢祖帝(英国 南安普顿大学 数学科学学院和南安普顿统计科学研究所教授)

讲座时间:115日上午1000—1130

讲座地点:文波楼四楼会议室

内容摘要:In this talk, I will review some recent progress in theory and practice on semiparametric model averaging schemes for nonlinear dynamictime series regression modelling with a very large number of covariatesincluding exogenous regressors and autoregressive lags. Our objective isto obtain more accurate estimates and forecasts of time series by usinga large number of conditioning information variables in a nonparametric way. We have proposed several semiparametric penalized methods of ModelAveraging MArginal Regression (MAMAR) for the regressors and autoregressors either through an initial screening procedure to screen out theregressors whose marginal contributions are not signicant in estimatingthe joint multivariate regression function or by imposing an approximatefactor modelling structure on the ultrahigh dimensional exogenous regressors with principal component analysis used to estimate the latent common factors. In either case, we construct the optimal combination of thesignicant marginal regression and autoregression functions to approximate the objective joint multivariate regression function. Asymptoticproperties for these schemes are derived under some regularity conditions.Empirical applications of the proposed methodology to forecasting the economic risk, such as inflation risk in the UK, will be demonstrated.
