plotArmaTrueacf(object, lag.max=20, pacf=FALSE, plot=TRUE,
          xlab="lag", ylab=c("ACF", "PACF")[1+pacf],
          ylim=c(-1, 1)*max(ACF), type="h",
          complex.eps=1000*.Machine[["double.neg.eps"]], ...)

Arguments

object

either a numeric vector or a list with components 'ar' and 'ma'. If 'object' is numeric, it is interpreted as a model with no 'ma' part.

lag.max

the maximum number of lags for which to calculate the ACF or PACF

pacf

logical. Should the partial autocorrelations be returned?

plot

logical. Should the ACF (or PACF) be plotted?

xlab, ylab, ylim, type

arguments for 'plot'

complex.eps

a small positive number used to identify complex conjugates: Let 'roots' = the vector of p roots of the characteristic polynomial of the autoregressive part of 'object'. This is used by 'findConjugates': x[i] and x[j] are considered conjugate if their relative difference exceeds complex.eps but the relative difference of their conjugates is less than complex.eps.

We use 'solve' in the 'polynom' package, because it was substially more accurate for cases we tested in R 2.6.0 than 'polyroot'.

...

optional arguments passed to 'plot'

Details

1. Compute and test stationarity. An ARMA process is stationary if all the roots of its AR component lie inside the unit circle (Box and Jenkins, 1970). If the process is not stationary, a warning is issued, and no plot is produced.

2. Compute and plot the theoretical ACF.

3. Analyze periodicity of any complex roots

Value

a list with the following components

roots

a complex vector of the roots sorted by modulus and sign of the immaginary part.

acf, pacf

a named numeric vector of the estimated ACF (or PACF of 'pacf = TRUE').

periodicity

a data.frame with one row for each complex conjugate pair of roots and columns 'damping' and 'period'.
