mloglik1a(jtms, TT = max(jtms), nu, g,
          Ig = function(x) sapply(x, function(y) integrate(g, 0, y)$value),
          tol.abs = 1e-12, tol.rel = 1e-12, limit = 1000
          )

Arguments

jtms

A numeric vector, with values sorted in ascending order. Jump times to fit the inhomogeneous self-exciting point process model on.

TT

A scalar. The censoring time, or the terminal time for observation. Should be (slightly) greater than the maximum of jtms.

nu

A (vectorized) function. The baseline intensity function.

g

A (vectorized) function. The excitation function.

Ig

A (vectorized) function. Its value at t gives the integral of the excitation function from 0 to t.

tol.abs

A small positive number. The tolerance of the absolute error in the numerical integral of ν.

tol.rel

A small positive number. The tolerance of the relative error in the numerical integral of ν.

limit

An (large) positive integer. The maximum number of subintervals allowed in the adaptive quadrature method to find the numerical integral of ν.

Details

This version of the mloglik function uses external C code to speedup the calculations. Otherwise it is the same as the mloglik0 function.

Value

The value of the negative log-liklihood.
