spec.ar {stats}R Documentation

Estimate Spectral Density of a Time Series from AR Fit

Description

Fits an AR model to x (or uses the existing fit) and computes (and by default plots) the spectral density of the fitted model.

Usage

spec.ar(x, n.freq, order = NULL, plot = TRUE, na.action = na.fail,
        method = "yule-walker", ...)

Arguments

x A univariate (not yet:or multivariate) time series or the result of a fit by ar.
n.freq The number of points at which to plot.
order The order of the AR model to be fitted. If omitted, the order is chosen by AIC.
plot Plot the periodogram?
na.action NA action function.
method method for ar fit.
... Graphical arguments passed to plot.spec.

Value

An object of class "spec". The result is returned invisibly if plot is true.

Warning

Some authors, for example Thomson (1990), warn strongly that AR spectra can be misleading.

Note

The multivariate case is not yet implemented.
