Inference for Systems of Stochastic Differential Equations from Discretely Sampled Data
A Numerical Maximum Likelihood Approach
Maximum likelihood estimation of discretely observed diffusion processes is mostly hampered by the lack of a closed form solution of the transient density. In this paper the author expands extant work on univariate diffusions to higher dimensions. After providing evidence for the efficiency of a numerical approach, the authors illustrate its application for the estimation of a joint system of short-run and medium run investor sentiment and asset price dynamics using German stock market data.
