Abstract: In this thesis,the limiting Gaussian distribution of a class of Cram´er-von Mises statistics{T N }for two-sample problem pertaining to empirical processes of the squared residuals from two independent samples of ARCH processes is elucidated. A distinctive feature is that, unlike the residuals of ARMA processes, the asymptotics{T N}depend on those of ARCH volatility estimators. Based on the asymptotis of{T N},we numerically assess the relative asymptotic efficiency and ARCH volatility effect for some ARCH residual distributions. Moreover, a measure of robustness for {T N }is introduced. Then this aspect of{T N}based on such residual distributions is illustrated numerically. In contrast with the i.i.d.or ARMA settings, these studies illuminate some interesting features of ARCH residuals.
