Auto-Regressive Conditional Heteroskedasticity (ARCH)

Auto-Regressive Conditional Heteroskedasticity (ARCH) is a nonlinear stochastic process, where the variance is time-varying, and a function of the
past variance. ARCH processes have frequency distributions which have high peaks at the mean and fat-tails, much like fractal distributions.
