Slice Distribution of GARCH(1,1) 

Generalized autoregressive conditionally heteroscedastic process GARCHProcess is used to describe time series that exhibit volatility clustering phenomenon. The distribution of the time slice of a GARCH process has much heavier tails than the normal distribution. These two properties make GARCH process a very attractive choice to model financial time series, which display both of these phenomena.
