## Constrained Nonlinear Programming for Volatility Estimation with GARCH Models

The paper proposes a constrained Nonlinear Programming methodology for volatility estimation with GARCH models. These models are usually developed and solved as unconstrained optimization problems whereas they actually fit into nonlinear, nonconvex problems. Computational results on FTSE 100 and S & P 500 indices with up to 1500 data points are given and contrasted to … Read more
