nscosinor.initial-internal: Initial Values for Non-stationary Cosinor

Description Usage Arguments Author(s)

Description

Creates initial values for the non-stationary cosinor decomposition nscosinor. For internal use only.

Usage

1
nscosinor.initial(data, response, tau, lambda=1/12, n.season)

Arguments

data

a data frame.

response

response variable.

tau

vector of smoothing parameters, tau[1] for trend, tau[2] for 1st seasonal parameter, tau[3] for 2nd seasonal parameter, etc. Larger values of tau allow more change between observations and hence a greater potential flexibility in the trend and season.

lambda

distance between observations (lambda=1/12 for monthly data, default).

n.season

number of seasons.
