7.8 Further Reading: Estimation of The GWN Model

  • Good introductory statistical theory is given in (DeGroot and Schervish 2011). For an econometrics focus see (Goldberger 1991). More advanced books - (Casella and Berger 2002), Bickell and Dokson.
  • R books on statistics, Monte Carlo and bootstrapping: (Vinod 2010) (bootstrapping)
  • Surprisingly, the statistical properties of VaR are often not discussed much in standard textbook treatments. See, for example (Jorion 1997).
