Time-varying (S, s) band models: Properties and interpretation
MetadataShow full item record
A recent strand of empirical work uses (S, s) models with time-varying stochastic bands to describe infrequent adjustments of prices and other variables. The present paper examines some properties of this model, which encompasses most micro-founded adjustment rules rationalizing infrequent changes. We illustrate that this model is flexible enough to fit data characterized by infrequent adjustment and variable adjustment size. We show that, to the extent that there is variability in the size of adjustments (e.g. if both small and large price changes are observed), (i) a large band parameter is needed to fit the data and (ii) the average band of inaction underlying the model may differ strikingly from the typical observed size of adjustment. The paper thus provides a rationalization for a recurrent empirical result: very large estimated values for the parameters measuring the band of inaction. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.

Reducing the dimensionality of hyperspectral remotely sensed data with applications for maximum likelihood image classificationSantich, Norman Ty (2007)As well as the many benefits associated with the evolution of multispectral sensors into hyperspectral sensors there is also a considerable increase in storage space and the computational load to process the data. ...
Granular vortices: Identification, characterization and conditions for the localization of deformationTordesillas, A.; Pucilowski, S.; Lin, Qun; Peters, J.; Behringer, R. (2016)We relate the micromechanics of vortex evolution to that of force chain buckling and, on this basis, formulate the conditions for strain localization in a continuum model of dense granular media. Using the traditional ...
