a GARCH parameter matrix (N \times N)


a matrix of the conditional variances (T \times N)


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


the Hessian of the volatility part of the DCC log-likelihood function (T \times N^{2})
