A collection and description of functions
to compute the distribution and and quantile
function for MacKinnon's unit root test statistics.

The functions are:

`punitroot` | the returns cumulative probability, |

`qunitroot` | the returns quantiles of the unit root test statistics, |

`unitrootTable` | tables p values from MacKinnon's response surface. |

1 2 3 4 5 6 |

`N` |
the number of observations in the sample from which the
quantiles are to be computed. |

`na.rm` |
a logical value. If set to |

`p` |
a numeric vector of probabilities. Missing values are allowed. |

`q` |
vector of quantiles or test statistics. Missing values are allowed. |

`statistic` |
a character string describing the type of test statistic.
Valid choices are |

`trend` |
a character string describing the regression from which the
quantiles are to be computed. Valid choices are: |

The function `punitroot`

returns the cumulative probability
of the asymptotic or finite sample distribution of the unit root
test statistics.

The function `qunitroot`

returns the quantiles of the
asymptotic or finite sample distribution of the unit root test
statistics, given the probabilities.

The function `punitroot`

and `qunitroot`

use Fortran
routines and the response surface approach from J.G. MacKinnon (1988).
