Moderate deviations in a class of stable but nearly unstable processes

Abstract : We consider a stable but nearly unstable autoregressive process of any order. The bridge between stability and instability is expressed by a time-varying companion matrix $A_{n}$ with spectral radius $\rho(A_{n}) < 1$ satisfying $\rho(A_{n}) \rightarrow 1$. In that framework, we establish a moderate deviation principle for the empirical covariance only relying on the elements of $A_{n}$ through $1-\rho(A_{n})$ and, as a by-product, we establish a moderate deviation principle for the OLS estimator when $\Gamma$, the renormalized asymptotic variance of the process, is invertible. Finally, when $\Gamma$ is singular, we also provide a compromise in the form of a moderate deviation principle for a penalized version of the estimator. Our proofs essentially rely on troncations and $m_{n}$--dependent sequences with an unbounded rate $(m_{n})$.
