ARMAacf {stats}R Documentation

Compute Theoretical ACF for an ARMA Process

Description

Compute the theoretical autocorrelation function or partial autocorrelation function for an ARMA process.

Usage

ARMAacf(ar = numeric(0), ma = numeric(0), lag.max = r, pacf = FALSE)

Arguments

ar numeric vector of AR coefficients
ma numeric vector of MA coefficients
lag.max integer. Maximum lag required. Defaults to max(p, q+1), where p, q are the numbers of AR and MA terms respectively.
pacf logical. Should the partial autocorrelations be returned?

Details

The methods used follow Brockwell & Davis (1991, section 3.3). Their equations (3.3.8) are solved for the autocovariances at lags 0, ..., max(p, q+1), and the remaining autocorrelations are given by a recursive filter.

Value

A vector of (partial) autocorrelations, named by the lags.

Examples

ARMAacf(c(1.0, -0.25), 1.0, lag.max = 10)
## Example from Brockwell & Davis (1991, pp.92-4)
## answer 2^(-n) * (32/3 + 8 * n) /(32/3)
n <- 1:10; 2^(-n) * (32/3 + 8 * n) /(32/3)
ARMAacf(c(1.0, -0.25), 1.0, lag.max = 10, pacf = TRUE)
ARMAacf(c(1.0, -0.25), lag.max = 10, pacf = TRUE)
