naginterfaces.library.tsa.uni_spectrum_daniell(nx, mtx, px, mw, pw, l, lg, xg)[source]

uni_spectrum_daniell calculates the smoothed sample spectrum of a univariate time series using spectral smoothing by the trapezium frequency (Daniell) window.

Parameters
nxint

, the length of the time series.

mtxint

Whether the data are to be initially mean or trend corrected.

For no correction.

For mean correction.

For trend correction.

pxfloat

The proportion of the data (totalled over both ends) to be initially tapered by the split cosine bell taper. (A value of implies no tapering.)

mwint

The value of which determines the frequency width of the smoothing window as . A value of implies no smoothing is to be carried out.

pwfloat

, the shape parameter of the trapezium frequency window.

A value of gives a triangular window, and a value of a rectangular window.

If (i.e., no smoothing is carried out), is not used.

lint

, the frequency division of smoothed spectral estimates as .

lgint

Indicates whether unlogged or logged spectral estimates and confidence limits are required.

For unlogged.

For logged.

xgfloat, array-like, shape

The data points.

Returns

Notes

In the NAG Library the traditional C interface for this routine uses a different algorithmic base. Please contact NAG if you have any questions about compatibility.

The supplied time series may be mean or trend corrected (by least squares), and tapered, the tapering factors being those of the split cosine bell:

where and is the tapering proportion.

The unsmoothed sample spectrum

is then calculated for frequency values

where [ ] denotes the integer part.

The smoothed spectrum is returned as a subset of these frequencies for which is a multiple of a chosen value , i.e.,

where . You will normally fix first, then choose so that is sufficiently large to provide an adequate representation for the unsmoothed spectrum, i.e., . It is possible to take , i.e., .

The smoothing is defined by a trapezium window whose shape is supplied by the function

the proportion being supplied by you.

The width of the window is fixed as by you supplying . A set of averaging weights are constructed:

where is a normalizing constant, and the smoothed spectrum obtained is

If no smoothing is required should be set to , in which case the values returned are . Otherwise, in order that the smoothing approximates well to an integration, it is essential that , and preferable, but not essential, that be a multiple of . A choice of would normally be required to supply an adequate description of the smoothed spectrum. Typical choices of and should be adequate for usual smoothing situations when .

The sampling distribution of is approximately that of a scaled variate, whose degrees of freedom is provided by the function, together with multiplying limits , from which approximate 95% confidence intervals for the true spectrum may be constructed as . Alternatively, log may be returned, with additive limits.

The bandwidth of the corresponding smoothing window in the frequency domain is also provided. Spectrum estimates separated by (angular) frequencies much greater than may be assumed to be independent.
