## Computation of the likelihood of an elliptical copula

### Description

Computes the likelihood

\frac{g(Q_g(U) \Sigma^{-1} Q_g(U))}{f_g(Q_g(U_1)) \cdots f_g(Q_g(U_d))} 

for a vector (U_1, \dots, U_d) on the unit cube and for a d-dimensional generator g whose univariate density and quantile functions are respectively f_g and Q_g. This is to the likelihood of the copula associated with the elliptical distribution having density |det(\Sigma)|^{-1/2} g(x \Sigma^{-1} x).

### Usage

EllCopLikelihood(grid, g_d, pointsToCompute, Sigma_m1, log = TRUE)


### Arguments

 grid the discretization grid on which the generator is given. g_d the values of the d-dimensional density generator on the grid. pointsToCompute the points U at which the likelihood should be computed. If pointsToCompute is a vector, then its length is used as the dimension d of the space. If it is a matrix, then the dimension of the space is the number of columns. Sigma_m1 the inverse correlation matrix of the elliptical distribution. log if TRUE, this returns the log-likelihood instead of the likelihood.

### Value

a vector (of length 1 if pointsToCompute is a vector) of likelihoods associated with each observation.

### Examples

grid = seq(0,50,by = 0.01)
gdnorm = DensityGenerator.normalize(grid = grid, grid_g = exp(-grid/2), d = 3)
gdnorm2 = DensityGenerator.normalize(grid = grid, grid_g = 1/(1+grid^2), d = 3)
X = EllCopSim(n = 30, d = 3, grid = grid, g_d = gdnorm)
logLik = EllCopLikelihood(grid , g_d = gdnorm , X,
Sigma_m1 = diag(3), log = TRUE)
logLik2 = EllCopLikelihood(grid , g_d = gdnorm2 , X,
Sigma_m1 = diag(3), log = TRUE)
print(c(sum(logLik), sum(logLik2)))
