estBlackBox {dse}R Documentation

Estimate a TSmodel

Description

Estimate a TSmodel.

Usage

    estBlackBox(data,...)

Arguments

data

Data in an object of class TSdata.

...

Optional arguments depent on the function which is eventually called.

Details

The function makes a call to estBlackBox4, also called bft, which seems the most reliable of functions estBlackBox1, estBlackBox2, estBlackBox4. My research in this area is no longer active, but the actual routine called could change if better methods appear.

To reduce load on the CRAN check servers, the example below uses max.lag=3 rather than the default 12 used in Gilbert (1995).

Value

A state space model in an object of class TSestModel.
