3 Description
Let the vector
${x}_{t}$, denote a time series which is assumed to follow an autoregressive moving average (ARMA) model of the form:
where
${\epsilon}_{t}$, is a residual series of independent random perturbations assumed to be Normally distributed with zero mean and variance
${\sigma}^{2}$. The parameters
$\left\{{\varphi}_{i}\right\}$, for
$\mathit{i}=1,2,\dots ,p$, are called the autoregressive (AR) parameters, and
$\left\{{\theta}_{j}\right\}$, for
$\mathit{j}=1,2,\dots ,q$, the moving average (MA) parameters. The parameters in the model are thus the
$p$ $\varphi $ values, the
$q$ $\theta $ values, the mean
$\mu $ and the residual variance
${\sigma}^{2}$.
G05PHF sets up a reference vector containing initial values corresponding to a stationary position using the method described in
Tunnicliffe–Wilson (1979). The routine can then return a realization of
${x}_{1},{x}_{2},\dots ,{x}_{n}$. On a successful exit, the recent history is updated and saved in the reference vector
R so that G05PHF may be called again to generate a realization of
${x}_{n+1},{x}_{n+2},\dots $, etc. See the description of the argument
MODE in
Section 5 for details.
One of the initialization routines
G05KFF (for a repeatable sequence if computed sequentially) or
G05KGF (for a nonrepeatable sequence) must be called prior to the first call to G05PHF.

 14: $\mathrm{IFAIL}$ – INTEGERInput/Output

On entry:
IFAIL must be set to
$0$,
$1\text{ or}1$. If you are unfamiliar with this argument you should refer to
Section 3.4 in How to Use the NAG Library and its Documentation for details.
For environments where it might be inappropriate to halt program execution when an error is detected, the value
$1\text{ or}1$ is recommended. If the output of error messages is undesirable, then the value
$1$ is recommended. Otherwise, if you are not familiar with this argument, the recommended value is
$0$.
When the value $\mathbf{1}\text{ or}\mathbf{1}$ is used it is essential to test the value of IFAIL on exit.
On exit:
${\mathbf{IFAIL}}={\mathbf{0}}$ unless the routine detects an error or a warning has been flagged (see
Section 6).
6 Error Indicators and Warnings
If on entry
${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=0$ or
$1$, explanatory error messages are output on the current error message unit (as defined by
X04AAF).
Errors or warnings detected by the routine:
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=1$

On entry, ${\mathbf{MODE}}=\u2329\mathit{\text{value}}\u232a$.

Previous value of
${\mathbf{IP}}=\u2329\mathit{\text{value}}\u232a$ and
${\mathbf{IP}}=\u2329\mathit{\text{value}}\u232a$.

${\mathbf{IQ}}=\u2329\mathit{\text{value}}\u232a$ and

${\mathbf{LR}}=\u2329\mathit{\text{value}}\u232a$: minimum length required
$\text{}=\u2329\mathit{\text{value}}\u232a$.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=11$

On entry,
STATE vector has been corrupted or not initialized.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=99$

contact
NAG.
See
Section 3.9 in How to Use the NAG Library and its Documentation for further information.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=399$
Your licence key may have expired or may not have been installed correctly.
See
Section 3.8 in How to Use the NAG Library and its Documentation for further information.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=999$
Dynamic memory allocation failed.
See
Section 3.7 in How to Use the NAG Library and its Documentation for further information.
7 Accuracy
Any errors in the reference vector's initial values should be very much smaller than the error term; see
Tunnicliffe–Wilson (1979).
8 Parallelism and Performance
G05PHF is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
Please consult the
X06 Chapter Introduction for information on how to control and interrogate the OpenMP environment used within this routine. Please also consult the
Users' Note for your implementation for any additional implementationspecific information.
The time taken by G05PHF is essentially of order ${\left({\mathbf{IP}}\right)}^{2}$.
Note: The reference vector,
R, contains a copy of the recent history of the series. If attempting to reinitialize the series by calling
G05KFF or
G05KGF a call to G05PHF with
${\mathbf{MODE}}=0$ must also be made. In the repeatable case the calls to G05PHF should be performed in the same order (at the same point(s) in simulation) every time
G05KFF is used. When the generator state is saved and restored using the argument
STATE, the time series reference vector must be saved and restored as well.
The ARMA model for a time series can also be written as:
where
 ${x}_{n}$ is the observed value of the time series at time $n$,
 $\mathit{NA}$ is the number of autoregressive parameters, ${A}_{i}$,
 $\mathit{NB}$ is the number of moving average parameters, ${B}_{i}$,
 $E$ is the mean of the time series,
and
 ${a}_{t}$ is a series of independent random Standard Normal perturbations.
This is the form used in G05PHF.
This is related to the form given in
Section 3 by:
 ${B}_{1}^{2}={\sigma}^{2}$,
 ${B}_{i+1}={\theta}_{i}\sigma ={\theta}_{i}{B}_{1}\text{, \hspace{1em}}i=1,2,\dots ,q$,
 $\mathit{NB}=q+1$,
 $E=\mu $,
 ${A}_{i}={\varphi}_{i}\text{, \hspace{1em}}i=1,2,\dots ,p$,
 $\mathit{NA}=p$.
10 Example
This example generates values for an autoregressive model given by
where
${\epsilon}_{t}$ is a series of independent random Normal perturbations with variance
$1.0$. The random number generators are initialized by
G05KFF and then G05PHF is called to initialize a reference vector and generate a sample of ten observations.
