 get_regime_means R Documentation

## Calculate regime means \mu_{m}

### Description

get_regime_means calculates regime means \mu_{m} = (I - \sum A_{m,i})^(-1)) for the given GMVAR, StMVAR, or G-StMVAR model.

### Usage

get_regime_means(gsmvar)


### Arguments

 gsmvar an object of class 'gsmvar', typically created with fitGSMVAR or GSMVAR.

### Value

Returns a (dxM) matrix containing regime mean \mu_{m} in the m:th column, m=1,..,M.
