Hurn, Stan, Jeisman, Joseph, & Lindsay, Ken (2006) Some Remarks on the Approximation of Transitional Density in Stochastic Differential Equations. In Dungey, M & Bardsley, P (Eds.) Econometric Society, ESAM06, 4 - 7 July 2006, Australia, Northern Territory, Alice Springs.
AÄ³t-Sahalia (2002) introduced a method to estimate transitional probability densities of di®usion processes by means of Hermite expansions with coe±cients determined by means of Taylor series. This note describes a numerical procedure to ¯nd these coe±cients based on the calculation of moments. One advantage of this procedure is that it can be used e®ectively when the mathematical operations required to ¯nd closed-form expressions for these coe±cients are otherwise infeasible.
