Fast information transfer detection between asynchronous time series

Transfer Entropy (TE)  from timeseries B to A measures how much information time series B adds to the prediction of time series A.  We first recall asymptotic results for a test of TE, then introduce TE for asynchronous time-series such as limit order book events, and finally use time-shifting to characterize the typical time needed for information transmission between two limit order books or two exchanges, and the typical delay after which no information transmission takes place.
