A Tapering Operator on A Matrix

Description

Generate a tapering operator with given dimention and tuning parameter. Multiplying it on a covariance matrix by componentwise product can provide a regularized estimator with the tapering method.

Usage

tapering(p, k = 1)

Arguments

p

the dimension of a covariance matrix.

k

the tuning parameter of the tapering method. The default value is 1.

Value

a p*p matrix.
