Nonlinear transformations of integrated time series. (English) Zbl 0721.62088

Summary: We consider the effects of nonlinear transformations on integrated processes and unit root tests performed on such series. A test that is invariant to monotone data transformations is proposed. It is shown that series are generally not cointegrated with nonlinear transformations of themselves, but the same transformation applied to a pair of cointegrated series can result in cointegration between the transformed series.
