An ARCH Robust STAR Test
() and Johan Lyhagen
Abstract: The LM type linearity test for STAR nonlinearities is
severely distorted when the process is governed by conditional
heteroskedasticity. In order to correct the test we propose a parametric
bootstrap. It is shown, by means of Monte Carlo methods, that the bootstrap
test is almost exact.
