Description

Generators for efpFunctional objects suitable for aggregating empirical fluctuation processes to test statistics along continuous variables (i.e., along time in time series applications).

supLM(from = 0.15, to = NULL) 

maxMOSUM(width = 0.15)

Arguments

from, to

numeric from interval (0, 1) specifying start and end of trimmed sample period. By default, to is 1 - from, i.e., with the default from = 0.15 the first and last 15 percent of observations are trimmed.

width

a numeric from interval (0,1) specifying the bandwidth. Determines the size of the moving data window relative to sample size.

Details

supLM and maxMOSUM generate efpFunctional objects for Andrews' supLM test and a (maximum) MOSUM test, respectively, with the specified optional parameters (from and to, and width, respectively). The resulting objects can be used in combination with empirical fluctuation processes of class gefp for significance testing and visualization. The corresponding statistics are useful for carrying out structural change tests along a continuous variable (i.e., along time in time series applications). Further typical efpFunctionals for this setting are the double-maximum functional maxBB and the Cramer-von Mises functional meanL2BB.

Value

An object of class efpFunctional.
