Description

This function returns the analytical gradient of the log-likelihood function of the (E)CCC-GARCH(1,1) model.

Usage

1
   analytical.grad(a, A, B, R, u, model)

Arguments

a

a vector of constants in the vector GARCH equation (N \times 1)

A

an ARCH parameter matrix in the vector GARCH equation (N \times N)

B

a GARCH parameter matrix in the vector GARCH equation (N \times N)

R

a constant conditional correlation matrix (N \times N)

u

a matrix of the data used for estimating the (E)CCC-GARCH(1,1) model (T \times N)

model

a character string describing the model. "diagonal" for the diagonal model and "extended" for the extended (full ARCH and GARCH parameter matrices) model

Value

a npar \times T matrix of gradients

Note

In the output, each column (not row) corresponds to the gradient at observation t.
