Notes

The input is a set of lagged autocovariance matrices . These will generally be sample values such as are obtained from a multivariate time series using multi_corrmat_cross().

The main calculation is the recursive determination of the coefficients in the finite lag (forward) prediction equation

and the associated backward prediction equation

together with the covariance matrices of and of .

The recursive cycle, by which the order of the prediction equation is extended from to , is to calculate

then ,

from which

and

Finally, and .

(Here denotes the transpose of a matrix.)

The cycle is initialized by taking (for )

In the step from to , the above equations contain redundant terms and simplify. Thus (1) becomes and neither (2) and (3) are needed.

Quantities useful in assessing the effectiveness of the prediction equation are generalized variance ratios

and multiple squared partial autocorrelations
