Consider the model Yt = βYt-1 + g(Yt-2) + εt for t ≥ 3. Here g is an unknown function, β is an unknown parameter to be estimated and εt are i.i.d. random error with zero 0 and variance σ2 and εt are independent of Ys for all t ≥ 3 and s = 1, 2. A class of asymptotically normal estimators of β are directly obtained based on piecewise polynomial approximator g ̂T(·) of g and the model Yt = βYt-1 + g ̂T(Yt-2) + εt. The asymptotic normality of pseudo-LS (PLS) estimator β ̌T of β and an estimator σ ̌T 2 of σ2 are investigated.
