### Do low $R^2$ values mean that my vector autoregressive model is bad?

I have a VAR model, which shows very low $R^2$ values (below 0.05). Does this mean that my model is very bad in explaining?

### How to interpret coefficients in a vector autoregressive model?

Can I interpret the coefficients in a VAR model in the same way as I do in a normal OLS regression?

### Testing periodogram “peaks”: sine-like wave or AR/MA/ARMA noise?

I'm performing an harmonic fit to data I know (from physical constraints) come from a periodic source of the form $$\sum_j^M \sum_i^N a_{i,j}\sin(2\pi f_it)+b_{i,j}\cos(2\pi f_it)$$ using the Lomb-...

### Boosted AR for time series forecasting?

I have time series data recorded at multiple locations, stored in a matrix $Y$. I have fit a Vector Autoregressive Model to it which forecasts the data pretty well on a test set. However, if I plot ...

### Vector autoregression - number of lags

I am constructing a Vector autoregression model and I have used AIC to find how many lags I should use. Does 7 lags seem unreasonable? I am trying to find the impact the property market has had on the ...

### What does R do when it plots the residuals of an AR fit?

This is a question that's been bugging me for some time. The problem is this: I'm modelling the residuals of a model $f(t,\vec{\theta})$ with (what I think is) an AR process plus a white noise process ...

### Do data and residuals of a VAR model have to be of normal distribution?

Does vector autoregression (VAR) model require data to be of normal distribution? What are the pitfalls if the residuals are not of normal distribution?

### How to fit the coefficients of a first order linear auto-regressive function without noise in the model, and the coefficient are equal?

I have a simple auto-regressive function: $x_{i+1} = c - cx_{i}$ It is linear and first order. There is no noise in the model ...

### Invertibility of AR(p) model

Notation: $\dot{Z}_t = Z_t - E(Z_t)$, so that it is centered at 0. $a_t$ stands for the residual and we assume the $a_t$ are independent and normally distributed with mean 0 and constant standard ...
I wonder if anyone has put into use the autoregressive metric for ARIMA clustering proposed by Corduas and Piccolo (2008). The authors define the distance autoregressive metric between two processes $... 1answer 5k views ### Problem simulating AR(2) process OP EDIT: There where no problem with this. The problem was with the method I was using for obtaining the PACF. Apparently it doesn't work quite well in this case (I was using the scikits/tsa python ... 2answers 3k views ### Poisson with an autoregressive term I want to fit a fairly "standard" Poisson model, but with an autoregressive term.$N_i \sim \mathrm{Pois}( \lambda_i E_i)$with$\log \lambda_i = X_i \beta + \delta\delta \sim AR(1)X_i$is a ... 2answers 455 views ### Test for independence of random variables I have a time series of data (about 300-750 elements, depending on the sample) and a model that has some random residues.

What are the differences between VAR (vector auto regression) and MANOVA? 1answer 603 views ### How can I convert a Gauss-Markov process to i.i.d. Gaussian process? I am wondering is there any straight forward approach to convert a Gauss-Markov process, i.e., a First order autoregressive process with i.i.d. Gaussian input, with the covariance matrix$K=Toeplitz(1,...
Lately, I have been interested in phenomenons related to omission of variables. For example, it can be shown that the expected value of the sample variance under the inclusion of one variable $x_1$ ...
