classmethod KalmanFilter.R(params, r, k, q, p)[source]

The coefficient matrix for the state vector in the observation equation.

Its dimension is r+k x 1.

  • r (int) – In the context of the ARMA model r is max(p,q+1) where p is the AR order and q is the MA order.
  • k (int) – The number of exogenous variables in the ARMA model, including the constant if appropriate.
  • q (int) – The MA order in an ARMA model.
  • p (int) – The AR order in an ARMA model.
