Using multiple Wiener-Itô stochastic integrals and Malliavin calculus we study the rescaled quadratic variations of a general Hermite process of order q with long-memory (Hurst) parameter H ∈ (frac(1, 2), 1). We apply our results to the construction of a strongly consistent estimator for H. It is shown that the estimator is asymptotically non-normal, and converges in the mean-square, after normalization, to a standard Rosenblatt random variable. To cite this article: A.
