The notion of ψ-weak dependence and its applications to bootstrapping time series

Paul Doukhan, CREST, Paris
Michael H. Neumann, Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena

We give an introduction to a notion of weak dependence which is more general than mixing and allows to treat for example processes driven by discrete innovations as they appear with time series bootstrap. As a typical example, we analyze autoregressive processes and their bootstrap analogues in detail and show how weak dependence can be easily derived from a contraction property of the process. Furthermore, we provide an overview of classes of processes possessing the property of weak dependence and describe important probabilistic results under such an assumption.

AMS 2000 subject classifications: Primary 60E15; secondary 62E99.

Keywords: Autoregressive processes, autoregressive bootstrap, mixing, weak dependence.
