statsmodels.tsa.arima_process.arma_acovf(ar, ma, nobs=10)[source]

theoretical autocovariance function of ARMA process


ar : array_like, 1d

coefficient for autoregressive lag polynomial, including zero lag

ma : array_like, 1d

coefficient for moving-average lag polynomial, including zero lag

nobs : int

number of terms (lags plus zero lag) to include in returned acovf


acovf : array

autocovariance of ARMA process given by ar, ma

Tries to do some crude numerical speed improvements for cases with high persistance. However, this algorithm is slow if the process is highly persistent and only a few autocovariances are desired.
