bfa.boot2fast.ls {bifurcatingr}R Documentation

Fast Double Bootstrap of Least Squares Estimators of BAR(p) Models

Description

This function performs fast double bootstrapping of the least squares estimators of the autoregressive coefficients in a bifurcating autoregressive (BAR) model of any order p as described in Elbayoumi & Mostafa (2020).

Usage

bfa.boot2fast.ls(z, p, burn = 5, B)

Arguments

z

a numeric vector containing the tree data

p

an integer determining the order of bifurcating autoregressive model to be fit to the data

burn

number of tree generations to discard before starting the bootstrap sample (replicate)

B

number of bootstrap samples (replicates) used in first round of bootstrapping

Value

boot.est

a matrix containing the first-stage bootstrapped least squares estimates of the autoregressive coefficients

boot2

a matrix containing the second-stage bootstrapped least squares estimates of the autoregressive coefficients

Examples
