Usage
splinef(y, h=10, level=c(80,95), fan=FALSE, lambda=NULL, biasadj=FALSE, method=c("gcv","mle"), x=y)
Arguments
y
a numeric vector or time series
h
Number of periods for forecasting
level
Confidence level for prediction intervals.
fan
If TRUE, level is set to seq(51,99,by=3). This is suitable for fan plots.
lambda
Box-Cox transformation parameter. Ignored if NULL. Otherwise, forecasts back-transformed via an inverse Box-Cox transformation.
biasadj
Use adjusted back-transformed mean for Box-Cox transformations. If TRUE, point forecasts and fitted values are mean forecast. Otherwise, these points can be considered the median of the forecast densities.
method
Method for selecting the smoothing parameter. If method="gcv", the generalized cross-validation method from smooth.spline is used. If method="mle", the maximum likelihood method from Hyndman et al (2002) is used.
x
Deprecated. Included for backwards compatibility.
Details

The cubic smoothing spline model is equivalent to an ARIMA(0,2,2) model but with a restricted parameter space. The advantage of the spline model over the full ARIMA model is that it provides a smooth historical trend as well as a linear forecast function. Hyndman, King, Pitrun, and Billah (2002) show that the forecast performance of the method is hardly affected by the restricted parameter space.

Value
