Hence when o :5 1 the first moment is infinite and when a < 2 the second moment is infinite. The Gaussian distribution is the only stable distribution that has finite second moments. 1 Maximum Likelihood Estimation Mittnik et al.  use an approximate conditional maximum likelihood (ML) procedure to estimate the parameters of the stable distribution. L) Sa,p t=l t a-I. 23) 2. 22). Since the stable density function is approximated, the estimated stable parameters are approximate. For further details on stable maximum likelihood estimation see Mittnik et al.
In Figure 8 the plot of the histogram of first differences in the credit spread times series unambiguously indicates non-Gaussian statistical properties. This time series has an excessive kurtosis of 22 compared to a Gaussian kurtosis of 3. Despite the departure from Gaussian properties, as our base case, we model the Baa credit spread dynamics with a mean-reverting conditional Gaussian process. 2 Model for the credit spread/intensity rate process We model the term structure of credit spreads and its dynamics by modeling the intensity of the Cox process, h(t), which is the instantaneous conditional probability of default at time t, given all the available information at this time .
U This section briefly discusses properties of the copula function and we describe how to implement a copula in the section on computational procedures. 21 We refer the reader to a survey paper by Embrechts et al.  that applies copulas for risk management. 1 D. D'Souza, K. Amir-Atefi, and B. Racheva-lotova Copula functions The mathematical tool used to capture the underlying dependence structure of a general multivariate distribution is the copula function. The copula refers to a class of multivariate distribution functions supported on a unit hypercube with standard uniform marginals.
