Smooth Transition Models
Abstract: This paper considers smooth transition regression models
and their univariate counterparts, smooth transition autoregressive models.
The model is defined and thereafter, linearity testing, statistical
inference in smooth transition models, and areas of application are
discussed. A bivariate application of smooth transition models to testing
Granger noncausality between variables is presented using two long Swedish
macroeconomic time series.
