# naginterfaces.library.tsa.multi_​regmat_​partial¶

naginterfaces.library.tsa.multi_regmat_partial(z, m)[source]

multi_regmat_partial calculates the sample partial autoregression matrices of a multivariate time series. A set of likelihood ratio statistics and their significance levels are also returned. These quantities are useful for determining whether the series follows an autoregressive model and, if so, of what order.

Notes

Let , for , denote a vector of time series. The partial autoregression matrix at lag , , is defined to be the last matrix coefficient when a vector autoregressive model of order is fitted to the series. has the property that if follows a vector autoregressive model of order then for .

Sample estimates of the partial autoregression matrices may be obtained by fitting autoregressive models of successively higher orders by multivariate least squares; see Tiao and Box (1981) and Wei (1990). These models are fitted using a algorithm based on the functions correg.linregm_obs_edit and correg.linregm_var_del. They are calculated up to lag , which is usually taken to be at most .

The function also returns the asymptotic standard errors of the elements of and an estimate of the residual variance-covariance matrix , for . If denotes the residual sum of squares and cross-products matrix after fitting an model to the series then under the null hypothesis the test statistic

is asymptotically distributed as with degrees of freedom. provides a useful diagnostic aid in determining the order of an autoregressive model. (Note that .) The function also returns an estimate of the maximum of the log-likelihood function for each AR model that has been fitted.
