About this book
In this monograph we have considered a class of autoregressive models whose coefficients are random. The models have special appeal among the non-linear models so far considered in the statistical literature, in that their analysis is quite tractable. It has been possible to find conditions for stationarity and stability, to derive estimates of the unknown parameters, to establish asymptotic properties of these estimates and to obtain tests of certain hypotheses of interest. We are grateful to many colleagues in both Departments of Statistics at the Australian National University and in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Wo110ngong. Their constructive criticism has aided in the presentation of this monograph. We would also like to thank Dr M. A. Ward of the Department of Mathematics, Australian National University whose program produced, after minor modifications, the "three dimensional" graphs of the log-likelihood functions which appear on pages 83-86. Finally we would like to thank J. Radley, H. Patrikka and D. Hewson for their contributions towards the typing of a difficult manuscript.
