Résumé : Strong consistency and asymptotic normality of a Gaussian quasi-maximum likelihood estimator for the parameters of a causal, invertible, and identiable vector autoregressive-moving average (VARMA) model are established in an indirect way. The proof is based on similar results for a much wider class of VARMA models with time-dependent coecients, hence in the context of non-stationary and heteroscedastic time series. For that reason, the proof avoids spectral analysis arguments and does not make use of ergodicity. The results presented are also applicable to ARMA models.
