Nonparametric change-point analysis of volatility. (English) Zbl 1421.62163

In this manuscript the authors develop some methods for change-point analysis of volatility. First, a test for change-point analysis for the volatility against jumps is constructed and its limit behavior is derived. Then, a minimax-optimal test is constructed for the local change problem. Finally, the global change problem is considered and a change-point test for this problem is given and its asymptotic results are presented.
