Motivated by random phenomena in natural science as well as by mathematical finance, stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs) have been intensively studied during the last fifty years with a main focus on theoretical analytic and probabilistic aspects. Thanks to the exploding number of available data and the fast progress in information technology, SPDE models become nowadays increasingly popular for practitioners, for instance, to model neuronal systems or interest rate fluctuations to give only two examples. Consequently, statistical methods are required to calibrate this class of complex models.
We study the parameter estimation for parabolic, linear, second order SPDEs observing a mild solution on a discrete grid in time and space. A high-frequency regime is considered where the mesh of the grid in the time variable goes to zero. Focusing on volatility estimation, we provide an explicit and easy to implement method of moments estimator based on the squared increments of the process. The estimator is consistent and admits a central limit theorem. This is established moreover for the estimation of the integrated volatility in a semi-parametric framework. Starting from a representation of the solution as an infinite factor model and exploiting mixing properties of Gaussian time series, the theory considerably differs from the statistics for semi-martingales literature. The performance of the method is illustrated in a simulation study.
This is joint work with Markus Bibinger.
