autocopula; time series; residuals; regime-switching models
The autocorrelation function describing the linear dependence is not suitable for description of residual dependence of the regime-switching models. In this contribution, inspired by Rakonczai ([20]), we will model the residual dependence of the regime-switching models (SETAR, LSTAR and ESTAR) with the autocopulas (Archimedean, EV and their convex combinations) and construct improved quality models for the original real time series.
