## Lagged Quotients

### Description

Returns suitably lagged and iterated quotients

### Usage

```
Quot(x, lag = 1, quotients = 1, ...)
```

### Arguments

`x` |
a numeric vector or matrix containing the values to be used for calculating the quotients. |

`lag` |
an integer indicating which lag to use. |

`quotients` |
an integer indicating the order of the quotient. |

`...` |
further arguments to be passed to or from methods. |

### Details

`NA`

's propagate.

### Value

If `x`

is a vector of length `n`

and `quotients = 1`

,
then the computed result is equal to the successive quotients
`x[(1+lag):n] - x[1:(n-lag)]`

.

If `quotients`

is larger than one this algorithm is applied
recursively to `x`

.
Note that the returned value is a vector which is shorter than
`x`

.

If `x`

is a matrix then the division operations are carried out
on each column separately.
