Function to parametrize a stationary AR process

Description

The function maps a vector of length p to the vector of autoregressive coefficients of a stationary AR(p) process. It can be used to parametrize a stationary AR(p) process

Usage

1

Arguments

raw

a vector of length p

Details

The function first maps each element of raw to (0,1) using tanh. The numbers obtained are treated as the first partial autocorrelations of a stationary AR(p) process and the vector of the corresponding autoregressive coefficients is computed and returned.

Value

The vector of autoregressive coefficients of a stationary AR(p) process corresponding to the parameters in raw.
