Description

Performs the Epps test for normality. The null hypothesis (H0) is that the given data follows a stationary Gaussian process.

Usage

1

Arguments

y

a numeric vector or an object of the ts class containing a stationary time series.

Details

The Epps test minimize the process' empirical characteristic function using a quadratic loss in terms of the process two first moments. The test was proposed by Epps, T.W. (1987) and implemented by Nieto-Reyes, A., Cuesta-Albertos, J. & Gamboa, F. (2014) using the amoebam() function of Press, W.H., Teukolsky, S.A., Vetterling, W.T. and Flannery, B.P. (2007).

Value

a h.test class with the main results of the Epps hypothesis test. The h.test class have the following values:
