orth: bool, default False

Compute orthoganalized impulse response error bands

repl: int

number of Monte Carlo replications to perform

T: int, default 10

number of impulse response periods

signif: float (0 < signif <1)

Significance level for error bars, defaults to 95% CI

seed: int

np.random.seed for replications

burn: int

number of initial observations to discard for simulation

cum: bool, default False
