The theoretical autocovariance function of an AR(p) with unit variance is computed. This algorithm has many applications. In this package it is used for the computation of the information matrix, in simulating p initial starting values for AR simulations and in the computation of the exact mle for the mean.
TacvfAR(phi, lag.max = 20)
vector of AR coefficients
computes autocovariances lags 0,1,...,maxlag
The algorithm given by McLeod (1975) is used.
The built-in R function ARMAacf could also be used but it is quite complicated and apart from the source code, the precise algorithm used is not described. The only reference given for ARMAacf is the Brockwell and Davis (1991) but this text does not give any detailed exact algorithm for the general case.
Another advantage of TacvfAR over ARMAacf is that it will be easier for to translate and implement this algorithm in other computing environments such as MatLab etc. since the code is entirely written in R.
Vector of length = (lag.max+1) containing the autocovariances at lags 0,...,lag.max is returned.
