Computation and Plots of Influence Functions for Risk and Performance Measures

Computes the influence functions time series of the returns for the risk and performance measures as mentioned in Zhang and Martin (2017) <https://ssrn.com/abstract=2747179> as well as Chen and Martin (2018) <https://ssrn.com/abstract=3085672>. Also evaluates estimators influence functions at a set of parameter values and plots them to display the shapes of the influence functions.

# Sample Code
# Computing the IF of the returns (with outlier cleaning and prewhitening)
# Loading the data
