On the efficacy of simulated maximum likelihood for estimating the parameters of stochastic differential equations
Hurn, Stanley, Lindsay, Kenneth A., & Vance, Martin (2003) On the efficacy of simulated maximum likelihood for estimating the parameters of stochastic differential equations. Journal of Time Series Analysis, 24(1), pp. 45-63.
A method for estimating the parameters of stochastic differential equations (SDEs) by simulated maximum likelihood is presented. This method is feasible whenever the underlying SDE is a Markov process. Estimates are compared to those generated by indirect inference, discrete and exact maximum likelihood. The technique is illustrated with reference to a one-factor model of the term structure of interest rates using 3-month US Treasury Bill data.
