Abstract

An exact form of the local Whittle likelihood is studied with the intent of developing a general purpose estimation procedure for the memory parameter ( d ) that does not rely on tapering or differencing prefilters. The resulting exact local Whittle estimator is shown to be consistent and to have the same N (0,1/4) limit distribution for all values of d if the optimization covers an interval of width less than 9/2 and the initial value of the process is known.
