Maximum likelihood estimation and inference is conveniently invariant to variation in the total number of ...

  • A Canonical Representation of Block Matrices with Applications to Covariance and Correlation Matrices Abstract: We obtain a canonical representation for block matrices. The representation facilitates simple computation of the determinant, the matrix inverse, and other powers of a block matrix, as well as ...

  • A Multivariate Realized GARCH Model Abstract: We propose a novel class of multivariate Realized GARCH models that utilize realized measures of volatility and correlations. The key property of the model is a convenient parametrization of ...

  • A New Parametrization of Correlation Matrices Abstract: We introduce a novel parametrization of the correlation matrix. The reparametrization facilitates modeling of correlation and covariance matrices by an unrestricted vector, where positive definiteness is an innate property ...
