Resource description

This paper examines the Gaussian maximum likelihood estimator (GMLE) in the context of a general form of spatial autoregressive and moving average (ARMA) processes with finite second moment. The ARMA processes are supposed to be causal and invertible under the half-plane unilateral order, but not necessarily Gaussian. We show that the GMLE is consistent. Subject to a modification to confine the edge effect, it is also asymptotically distribution-free in the sense that the limit distribution is normal, unbiased and has variance depending only on the autocorrelation function. This is an analogue of Hannan's classic result for time series in the context of spatial processes.
