Dear all,

regarding the bug in pacf
I have prepared a patch (attached) and tested it against the latest R devel

platform
x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
arch
x86_64
os
linux-gnu
system x86_64,
linux-gnu
status Under development
(unstable)
major
2
minor 7.0

year
2008
month
01
day
18
svn rev
44040
language
R
version.string R version 2.7.0 Under development (unstable) (2008-01-18 r44040)

Here I reproduce the example I gave in my previous post to trigger the bug

> set.seed(10)
>
> x <- rnorm(1000,sd=10000)
> y <- rnorm(1000,sd=1)
> pacf(ts(cbind(x,y)),plot=FALSE,lag.max=10)

Partial autocorrelations of series 'ts(cbind(x, y))', by lag

, , x

x y

 0.049 (  1)  0.002 ( -1)
 0.012 (  2) -0.072 ( -2)
 0.002 (  3)  0.036 ( -3)
 0.014 (  4)  0.013 ( -4)
 0.051 (  5)  0.003 ( -5)
 0.033 (  6) -0.018 ( -6)
 0.027 (  7)  0.069 ( -7)
-0.027 (  8)  0.028 ( -8)
-0.010 (  9) -0.015 ( -9)
-0.013 ( 10) -0.015 (-10)

, , y

x y

 0.041 (  1) -0.045 (  1)
 0.008 (  2) -0.027 (  2)
-0.056 (  3) -0.030 (  3)
 0.013 (  4) -0.020 (  4)
 0.017 (  5)  0.004 (  5)
-0.021 (  6) -0.010 (  6)
 0.022 (  7)  0.061 (  7)
 0.029 (  8) -0.034 (  8)
-0.014 (  9)  0.031 (  9)
-0.002 ( 10)  0.019 ( 10)

below you can find relevant info and an example where I reproduce Wei's book results.

The routine is pure R, on the website there is also a F95 version. I am willing to write a FORTRAN 77 version of the patch if needed but I think this might replace the bugged routine temporarily. Let me know.

Thanks for your attention

Simone
