gotheta(theta, object, garchlist = list(init.rec = "mci", delta = 2,
skew = 1, shape = 4, cond.dist = "norm", include.mean = FALSE,
include.delta = NULL, include.skew = NULL, include.shape = NULL,
leverage = NULL, trace = FALSE, algorithm = "nlminb", hessian = "ropt",
control = list(), title = NULL, description = NULL))

Arguments

theta

Vector of Euler angles.

object

An object of formal class Goinit or an extension thereof.

garchlist

List with optional elements passed to garchFit.

Details

In a first step the orthogonal matrix U is computed as the product of rotation matrices given the vector theta of Euler angles with the function UprodR. The linear map Z is computed next as Z = P D^{\frac{1}{2}} U'. The unobserved components Y are calculated as Y = X Z^{-1}. These are then utilized in the estimation of the univariate GARCH models according to object@garchf. The conditional variance/covariance matrices are calculated according to V_t = Z H_t Z' whereby H_t signifies a matrix with the conditional variances of the unvariate GARCH models on its diagonal.

Value

Returns an object of class GoGARCH.
