ARfit: Multivariate Autoregressive Model Fitting
This repository contains a collection of Matlab modules for
- estimating parameters of multivariate autoregressive (AR) models,
- diagnostic checking of fitted AR models, and
- analyzing eigenmodes of fitted AR models.
The algorithms implemented in ARfit are described in the following papers, which should be referenced if you use ARfit in publications:
A. Neumaier and T. Schneider, 2001: Estimation of parameters and eigenmodes of multivariate autoregressive models. ACM Trans. Math. Softw., 27, 27-57.
T. Schneider and A. Neumaier, 2001: Algorithm 808: ARfit – A Matlab package for the estimation of parameters and eigenmodes of multivariate autoregressive models. ACM Trans. Math. Softw., 27, 58-65.
ARfit includes support for multiple realizations (trials) of time series and can estimate parameters of multivariate AR models taking all available realizations into account.
The program package consists of several Matlab modules. To install the programs, download the package into a directory that is accessible by Matlab.
Starting Matlab and invoking Matlab's online help function
calls up detailed information on the purpose and the calling syntax of the module filename.m. The script ardem.m demonstrates the basic features of the modules contained in ARfit.
