Solve for inequality of AR model

I was working through my textbook and found this problem that I got stuck at: Consider the AR(2) Model $$X_t = \phi_1X_{t-1}+\phi_2X_{t-2}+\epsilon_t$$ We can assume $\phi_2 > 0$, so the roots of ...

Autocorrelation of a stationary AR(2) process

Consider the stationary AR$(2)$ process of the form: $y_{t} = \alpha + \phi_{1} \ y_{t-1} + \phi_{2} \ y_{t-2} + u_{t}$ where $u_{t}$ is i.i.d. white noise. Just as a head's up, we have not covered ...

Using ar function in R to fit a AR(p) with predetermined exact order p. [closed]

I am playing with R's sunspot data and I have $X$ as the yearly sum of sunspots(hence $X$ is a vector of length 235). I want to fit different AR models with different orders, $p = 1, 2, ..., 20$. I ...

Stationarity of AR(1) process whose autoregressive parameter could change over time

Imagine an AR(1) has an autoregressive parameter which could change in time. $y_t-\mu=\phi_t (y_{t-1}-\mu)+\varepsilon_t\,$, where $\phi_t$ is not always constant but still lies inside the usual ...

Expand a power of the difference operator in terms of time series $z_t$

I am trying to use excel to plot different time series. I have the equation $(1-L)^2 * z_t$ I know that $(1-L)*z_t$ is equal to $z_t-z_{t-1}$ Can I just expand $(1-L)^2$ using basic algebra and ...

AR.OLS isn't matching to an OLS on the autoregressive lags, Why?

I am using R and running ar.ols() on some data. And trying to compare to a more "manual" method of computing an AR model by doing lm() using the autoregressive lags as my independent variables. ...

What does “AR(p) filtered series” mean?

I guess this means that omitting some variables in a certain interval, say, $(x_1, x_2, x_3, x_4, x_5) \to (x_1, x_5)$ in AR(4) model. Is it right? Or does this means eliminating autocorrelations ...

AR process stationarity

For $X[n] =aX[n-1]+W[n]$ When $W[n]$ is iid. One can say that $X[n]$ is the output of $W[n]$ thrown into an LTI system. So how can it be that $X[n]$ is not necessarily WSS, if we know that a WSS ...
