Memory and infrequent breaks. (English) Zbl 0968.91036

Summary: We study how processes with infrequent regime switching may generate a long memory effect in the autocorrelation function. In such a case, the use of a strong fractional \(I(d)\) model for economic or financial analysis may lead to spurious results.
