On Darling–Robbins type confidence sequences and sequential tests with power one for parameters of an autoregressive process

15 Nov 1999-Statistics & Probability Letters (Elsevier)-Vol. 45, Iss: 3, pp 205-214

AbstractIn this paper, we have obtained confidence sequences using Chow's generalization of Hajek–Renyi inequality and the law of iterated logarithm for the autoregressive parameter in a stable first order autoregressive model where innovations are assumed to be independently and identically distributed. A sequential testing procedure with power one has also been proposed. We have also indicated a generalization to confidence sequences for several parameters in a pth order autoregressive model.

Abstract: The plant ‘Heat Rate’ (HR) is a measure of overall efficiency of a thermal power generating system. It depends on a large number of factors, some of which are non-measurable, while data relating to others are seldom available and recorded. However, coal quality (expressed in terms of ‘effective heat value’ (EHV) as kcal/kg) transpires to be one of the important factors that influences HR values and data on EHV are available in any thermal power generating system. In the present work, we propose a prediction interval of the HR values on the basis of only EHV, keeping in mind that coal quality is one of the important (but not the only) factors that have a pronounced effect on the combustion process and hence on HR. The underlying theory borrows the idea of providing simultaneous confidence interval (SCI) to the coefficients of a p-th p(≥1) order autoregressive model (AR(p)). The theory has been substantiated with the help of real life data from a power utility (after suitable base and scale transfo...

Introduction—Let x,x 1, x 2 … be a sequence of independent, identically distributed random variables with mean 0, variance 1, and moment generating function ϕ(t) = E(etz) finite in some neighborhood of t= 0, and put S n = x 1, + … + x n, \(\bar x\) n = S n/n. For any sequence of positive constants a n, n ≥ 1, let P m = P(|\(\bar x\) n| ≥ a n for some n ≥ m).
