Consistent estimation in partially observed random walks. (English) Zbl 0588.62058
Let $$X_ 1,...,X_ n$$ be independent and identically distributed according to a d.f. F with all central moments being finite and $$N_ i,\quad i=1,2,..$$. be a strictly increasing sequence of nonnegative integers. The problem of consistent estimation of the moments of F based only on the knowledge of the sequence $$S_{N_ i}=X_ 1+...+X_{N_ i},\quad i=1,2,..$$. is considered.
The continuous-time analogue of this problem, i.e. when $$X_ t,\quad t\geq 0$$ is a process with stationary and independent increments, is also discussed.
