Almost sure asymptotic likelihood theory for diffusion processes

  • T. S. Lee (a1) and F. Kozin (a1)

We consider maximum likelihood estimators for parameters of diffusion processes that are generated by nth-order Ito equations. We establish asymptotic consistency as well as convergence in distribution to normality for the estimators. Examples are presented and discussed.
