# Generalized FOBI

### Description

The gFOBI method for blind source separation problem. It is used in case of time series with stochastic volatility. The method is a generalization of FOBI, which is a method designed for iid data.

### Usage

### Arguments

`X` |
Numeric matrix or multivariate time series object of class |

`k` |
Vector of lags. Lag can be any non-negative integer, or a vector consisting of them. Default is |

`eps` |
Convergence tolerance. |

`maxiter` |
Maximum number of iterations. |

`method` |
Method to use for the joint diagonalization, options are |

`...` |
Other arguments passed on to chosen joint diagonalization method. |

### Details

Assume that *Y* has *p* columns and it is whitened, i.e. *Y = S^(-1/2)*(X - (1/T)*sum_t(X_(ti)))*, where *S* is a sample covariance matrix of *X*. Algorithm first calculates

*B^ij_k(Y) = (1/(T - k))*sum[Y_(t + k) Y_t' E^ij Y_t Y_(t + k)'],*

where *t = 1, …, T*, and then

*B_k(Y) = sum(B^ii_k(Y)),*

for *i = 1, …, p*.

The algorithm finds an orthogonal matrix *U* by maximizing

*sum(||diag(U B_k(Y) U')||^2).*

The final unmixing matrix is then *W = U S^(-1/2)*.

### Value

A list with class 'bss' containing the following components:

`W ` |
The estimated unmixing matrix. |

`k ` |
The vector of the used lags. |

`S ` |
Estimated sources as time series object standardized to have mean 0 and unit variances. |
