##### Compute Theoretical ACF for an ARMA Process

Compute the theoretical autocorrelation function or partial autocorrelation function for an ARMA process.

Keywords

##### Usage
ARMAacf(ar = numeric(), ma = numeric(), lag.max = r, pacf = FALSE)
##### Arguments
ar
numeric vector of AR coefficients
ma
numeric vector of MA coefficients
lag.max
integer. Maximum lag required. Defaults to max(p, q+1), where p, q are the numbers of AR and MA terms respectively.
pacf
logical. Should the partial autocorrelations be returned?
##### Details

The methods used follow Brockwell & Davis (1991, section 3.3). Their equations (3.3.8) are solved for the autocovariances at lags $0, \dots, max(p, q+1)$, and the remaining autocorrelations are given by a recursive filter.

##### Value

A vector of (partial) autocorrelations, named by the lags.
