Robust empirical likelihood for time series

Early View

This article introduces a robust frequency domain empirical likelihood inference procedure for the parametric component in the spectral densities of stationary processes. We construct the empirical likelihood function by using a new spectral estimating function to achieve robustness against contamination in the spectral density. Simulation studies demonstrate the good performance of the proposed robust frequency domain empirical likelihood method, which produces more accurate confidence regions than the ordinary empirical likelihood counterpart.
