Asymptotic Theory for Fractional Regression Models via Malliavin Calculus



We study the asymptotic behavior as n→∞ of the sequence
where \(B^{H_{1}}\) and \(B^{H_{2}}\) are two independent fractional Brownian motions, K is a kernel function and the bandwidth parameter α satisfies certain hypotheses in terms of H1 and H2. Its limiting distribution is a mixed normal law involving the local time of the fractional Brownian motion \(B^{H_{1}}\). We use the techniques of the Malliavin calculus with respect to the fractional Brownian motion.
