bh6lrtest: Likelihood ratio test for restrictions under partly known...

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

This function estimates a restricted VAR, where some restrictions are placed on r1 cointegrating relations which are chosen in the space of the matrix H. The test statistic is distributed as χ^2 with (p-s-r2)r1 degrees of freedom, with s equal to the number of columns of \bold{H}, r1 the number of cointegrating relations in the first partition and r2 the number of cointegrating relations in the second partition which will be estimated without any restrictions.

Usage

1
bh6lrtest(z, H, r, r1, conv.val = 0.0001, max.iter = 50)

Arguments

z

An object of class ca.jo.

H

The (p \times s) matrix containing the known cointegration relations.

r

The count of cointegrating relationships;
inferred from summary(ca.jo-object).

r1

The count of cointegrating relationships in the first partition of the cointegration space;

conv.val

The convergence value of the algorithm. (see details);

max.iter

The maximal number of iterations.

Details

Please note, that the following ordering of the dimensions should be obeyed: r1 ≤q s ≤q p - r2. A two-step algorithm is used to determine the eigen values of the restricted model. Convergence is achieved if the quadratic norm of the eigen values is smaller than conv.val.

Value

An object of class cajo.test.
