Selection of weak VARMA models by modified Akaike's information criteria

Journal Article

This article considers the problem of order selection of the vector autoregressive moving‐average (VARMA) models under the assumption that the errors are uncorrelated but not necessarily independent. These models are called weak VARMA by opposition to the standard VARMA models, also called strong VARMA models, in which the error terms are supposed to be i.i.d. We relax the standard independence assumption to extend the range of application of the VARMA models, allowing us to treat linear representations of general nonlinear processes. We propose a modified version of the Akaike information criterion for identifying the orders of weak VARMA models.
