# State-dependent Hawkes processes and their application to limit order book modelling

@inproceedings{MorariuPatrichi2018StatedependentHP, title={State-dependent Hawkes processes and their application to limit order book modelling}, author={Maxime Morariu-Patrichi and Mikko S. Pakkanen}, year={2018} }

We study statistical aspects of state-dependent Hawkes processes, which are an extension of Hawkes processes where a self- and cross-exciting counting process and a state process are fully coupled, interacting with each other. The excitation kernel of the counting process depends on the state process that, reciprocally, switches state when there is an event in the counting process. We first establish the existence and uniqueness of state-dependent Hawkes processes and explain how they can be… Expand
