Asymptotic expansions and bootstrapping distributions for dependent variables: A martingale approach. (English) Zbl 0759.62011
Author’s abstract: The paper develops a one-step triangular array asymptotic expansion for continuous martingales which are asymptotically normal. Mixing conditions are not required, but the quadratic variations of the martingales must satisfy a law of large numbers and a central limit type condition. From this result, we derive expansions for the distributions of estimators in asymptotically ergodic differential equation models, and also for the bootstrapping estimators of these distributions.
