# Calculate Factor Vector(s)

### Description

Generic function for the factor vector calculation given the SSA decomposition.

### Usage

1 2 3 4 |

### Arguments

`x` |
SSA object holding the decomposition. |

`idx` |
indices of the factor vectors to compute. |

`...` |
additional arguments to 'calc.v'. |

### Details

Factor vector is a column of the factor matrix V, which is calculated as follows:

*
V = Σ^(-1) X^T U,
*

where X is a Hankel trajectory matrix, U is the matrix of eigenvectors and Sigma is a matrix of singular values.

### Value

A numeric vector of suitable length (usually depends on SSA method and window length).

### Examples

1 2 3 4 | ```
# Decompose 'co2' series with default parameters
s <- ssa(co2)
# Calculate the 5th factor vector
v <- calc.v(s, 5)
