g13bgf accepts a series of new observations of an output time series and any associated input time series, for which a multi-input model is already fully specified, and updates the ‘state set’ information for use in constructing further forecasts.
The previous specification of the multi-input model will normally have been obtained by using g13bef to estimate the relevant transfer function and ARIMA parameters. The supplied state set will originally have been produced by g13bef (or possibly g13bjf), but may since have been updated by g13bgf.
The routine may be called by the names g13bgf or nagf_tsa_multi_inputmod_update.
The multi-input model is specified in Section 3 in g13bef. The form of these equations required to update the state set is as follows:
the transfer models which generate input component values from one or more inputs ,
which generates the output noise component from the output and the input components, and
the ARIMA model for the output noise which generates the residuals .
The state set (as also given in Section 3 in g13bef) is the collection of terms
for up to the maximum lag associated with each of these series respectively, in the above model equations. is the latest time point of the series from which the state set has been generated.
The routine accepts further values of the series , , for , and applies the above model equations over this time range, to generate new values of the various model components, noise series and residuals. The state set is reconstructed, corresponding to the latest time point , the earlier values being discarded.
The set of residuals corresponding to the new observations may be of use in checking that the new observations conform to the previously fitted model. The components of the new observations of the output series which are due to the various inputs, and the noise component, are also optionally returned.
The parameters of the model are not changed in this routine.

8Parallelism and Performance
Background information to multithreading can be found in the Multithreading documentation.
g13bgf is not threaded in any implementation.
The time taken by g13bgf is approximately proportional to .
This example uses the data described in g13bef in which observations of an output time series and a single input series were processed. In this example a model which included seasonal differencing of order was used. The values of the state set and the final values of para then obtained are used as input to this program, together with the values of new observations and the transfer function orders of the input series. The model used is , , , , .
The following are computed and printed out: the updated state set, the residuals and the values of the components and the output noise component corresponding to the new observations.
