Sancetta, A. (2007). Nearest Neighbor Conditional Estimation for Harris Recurrent Markov Chains. https://doi.org/10.17863/CAM.5056
This paper is concerned with consistent nearest neighbor time series estimation for data generated by a Harris recurrent Markov chain. The goal is to validate nearest neighbor estimation in this general time series context, using simple and weak conditions. The framework considered covers, in a unified manner, a wide variety of statistical quantities, e.g. autoregression function, conditional quantiles, conditional tail estimators and, more generally, extremum estimators. The focus is theoretical, but examples are given to highlight applications.

Alan, Sule; Browning, Martin (CFAP, Cambridge Judge Business School, University of Cambridge, 2008-01)We present a novel structural estimation procedure for models of intertemporal allocation. This is based on modelling expectation errors directly; we refer to it as Synthetic Residual Estimation (SRE). The flexibility of ...
Consistent estimation in Mendelian randomization with some invalid instruments using a weighted median estimator Bowden, Jack; Smith, George Davey; Haycock, Philip C.; Burgess, Stephen (Wiley, 2016)Developments in genome-wide association studies and the increasing availability of summary genetic association data have made application of Mendelian randomization relatively straightforward. However, obtaining reliable ...
Lecture on estimation and inference: Non-maximum likelihood estimation and statistical inference for linear and nonlinear mixed models Greenham, S. (Isaac Newton Institute, 2011-08-11)Traditionally linear and nonlinear mixed effects models are estimated by maximum likelihood assuming normal distribution. The goal of this lecture is to discuss non-iterative methods for estimation of linear mixed models ...
