hosking.sim: Generate Stationary Gaussian Process Using Hosking's Method

Description

Uses exact time-domain method from Hosking (1984) to generate a simulated time series from a specified autocovariance sequence.

Usage

hosking.sim(n, acvs)

Arguments

n

Length of series.

acvs

Autocovariance sequence of series with which to generate, must be of length at least n.

Value

Length n time series from true autocovariance sequence acvs.
