##### Generalized Empirical M-Fluctuation Processes

Computes an empirical M-fluctuation process from the scores of a fitted model.

Keywords
regression
##### Usage
gefp(…, fit = glm, scores = estfun, vcov = NULL,
decorrelate = TRUE, sandwich = TRUE, order.by = NULL,
fitArgs = NULL, parm = NULL, data = list())
##### Arguments

specification of some model which is passed together with data to the fit function: fm <- fit(…, data = data). If fit is set to NULL the first argument … is assumed to be already the fitted model fm (all other arguments in … are ignored and a warning is issued in this case).

fit

a model fitting function, typically lm, glm or rlm.

scores

a function which extracts the scores or estimating function from the fitted object: scores(fm).

vcov

a function to extract the covariance matrix for the coefficients of the fitted model: vcov(fm, order.by = order.by, data = data).

decorrelate

logical. Should the process be decorrelated?

sandwich

logical. Is the function vcov the full sandwich estimator or only the meat?

order.by

Either a vector z or a formula with a single explanatory variable like ~ z. The observations in the model are ordered by the size of z. If set to NULL (the default) the observations are assumed to be ordered (e.g., a time series).

fitArgs

List of additional arguments which could be passed to the fit function. Usually, this is not needed and … will be sufficient to pass arguments to fit.

parm

integer or character specifying the component of the estimating functions which should be used (by default all components are used).

data

an optional data frame containing the variables in the … specification and the order.by model. By default the variables are taken from the environment which gefp is called from.

##### Value

gefp returns a list of class "gefp" with components including:

process

the fitted empirical fluctuation process of class "zoo",

nreg

the number of regressors,

nobs

the number of observations,

fit

the fit function used,

scores

the scores function used,

fitted.model

the fitted model.
