Variational inference of the drift function for stochastic differential equations driven by Lévy processes

by   Min Dai, et al.

In this paper, we consider the nonparametric estimation problem of the drift function of stochastic differential equations driven by α-stable Lévy motion. First, the Kullback-Leibler divergence between the path probabilities of two stochastic differential equations with different drift functions is optimized. By using the Lagrangian multiplier, the variational formula based on the stationary Fokker-Planck equation is constructed. Then combined with the data information, the empirical distribution is used to replace the stationary density, and the drift function is estimated non-parametrically from the perspective of the process. In the numerical experiment, the different amounts of data and different α values are studied. The experimental results show that the estimation result of the drift function is related to both. When the amount of data increases, the estimation result will be better, and when the α value increases, the estimation result is also better.
