This function estimates a restricted VAR, where the restrictions are base upon \bold{α}, i.e. the loading vectors. The test statistic is distributed as χ^2 with r(pm) degrees of freedom, with m equal to the columns of the restricting matrix \bold{A}.

z 
An object of class 
A 
The (p \times m) matrix containing the restrictions on \bold{α}. 
r 
The count of cointegration relationships; 
The orthogonal matrix to \bold{A} can be accessed as
object@B
. The restricted \bold{α} matrix is
normalised with respect to the first variable.
An object of class cajo.test
