The Ljung-Box test for whiteness in a time series.

Description

portman.Q uses the cummulative ACF to test for whiteness of a time series.

Usage

1
2
    portman.Q(x, K)
    

Arguments

x

A time series (vector without missing values).

K

the maximum lag of the ACF to be used in the test.

Details

This is the Ljung-Box version of the the Portemanteau test for whiteness (Tong 1990). It may in particular be usefull to test for whiteness in the residuals from time series models.

Value

A vector is returned consisting of the asymtpotic chi-square value, the associated d.f. and asymptotic p.val for the test of whiteness.
