STAR model

Description

STAR model fitting with automatic selection of the number of regimes based on LM tests.

Usage

1
2
star(x, m=2, noRegimes, d = 1, steps = d, series, rob = FALSE,
                 mTh, thDelay, thVar, sig=0.05, trace=TRUE, control=list(), ...)

Arguments

x

time series

m, d, steps

embedding dimension, time delay, forecasting steps

noRegimes

max number of regimes

series

time series name (optional)

rob

perform robust test (not implemented)

thDelay

'time delay' for the threshold variable (as multiple of embedding time delay d)

mTh

coefficients for the lagged time series, to obtain the threshold variable

thVar

external threshold variable

sig

significance level for the tests to select the number of regimes.

control

further arguments to be passed as control list to optim

trace

should additional infos be printed out?

Details

The function star implements the iterative building strategy described in [1] to identify and estimate Smooth Transition AutoRegressive models.

Value

star returns an object of class nlar, subclass star, i.e. a list with informations about the fitted model.
