dlv_est: Gradient of the GARCH part of the log-likelihood function of an (E)DCC GARCH model


This function returns the gradient of the volatility part of the log-likelihood function of the DCC.


    dlv.est(par, dvar, model)



a vector of the parameters in the vector GARCH equation


a matrix of the data used for estimating an (E)DCC-GARCH model (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


A vector of the gradient. (3N \times 1) for "diagonal" and (2N^{2}+N \times 1) for "extended".


The function can be called from optim in dcc.estimation1. For obtaining the gradient for all t, use dlv instead.
