Thanks for this, it's a good start. I am using a univariate series indeed. Do you know where I could find the codes for StructTS please? I can't seem to find it. Thanks again

if you have a univariate time series and you want to break it into its various components, then you get the scalars based on a decomposition.

if you have a kalman filter/
basic strucutural model type setup ( i.e see harvey 1990, can 't remember title ), then you'll get matrices but I don't think structTS is used for the latter ? Professor Ripley, correct me if i'm wrong on that

because I don't use structTS.

I can't say much else but you may want to look at the DLM package if you are trying to do what I think you might be trying to do ?
