fourth: Fourth-order moment condition for the vector GARCH equation

Description Usage Arguments Value References See Also

Description

This function computes the fourth-order moment condition for the vector GARCH equation in the (E)CCC-GARCH models.

Usage

1
    fourth(A, B, R)

Arguments

A

an ARCH parameter matrix (N \times N)

B

a GARCH parameter matrix (N \times N)

R

a constant conditional correlation matrix (N \times N)

Value

a scalar. If strictly less than unity, the condition is satisfied.
