### How exactly do I create a partial regression plot to view the true effect of x on true y?

When creating a scatterplot by plotting each variable in a linear regression against y, we are essentially treating all regressors to be linearly independent. If regressors have multicollinearity, for ...

### Precision matrix and conditional uncorrelatedness

Let $\mathbf{u}_t = (u_{1t},u_{2t},\ldots,u_{pt})^{\prime}$ be a $p \times 1$ (stationary) random vector, and let $\mathbf{\Sigma}_{u}$ be the covariance matrix of $\mathbf{u}_t$. Further, denote the ...
