Bayesian Analysis of Latent Threshold Dynamic Models
(Journal of Business and Economic Statistics, 2013-04-01)
We discuss a general approach to dynamic sparsity modeling in multivariate time series analysis. Time-varying parameters are linked to latent processes that are thresholded to induce zero values adaptively, providing natural ...
