OLS regression of VECM weighting matrix

Description

This functions estimates the \bold{\alpha} matrix of a VECM. The following OLS regression of the R-form of the VECM is hereby utilised:

\bold{R}_{0t} = \bold{\alpha}\bold{\beta}\prime \bold{R}_{kt} + \bold{\varepsilon}_t \qquad t=1, \dots, T

Usage

alphaols(z, reg.number = NULL)


Arguments

 z An object of class ca.jo. reg.number The number of the equation in the R-form that should be estimated or if set to NULL (the default), all equations within the R-form are estimated.

Details

The cointegrating relations, i.e. \bold{R}_{kt}\prime \bold{\beta} are calculated by using z@RK and z@V.

Value

Returns an object of class lm.
