  exuber: Econometric Analysis of Explosive Time Series

Testing for and dating periods of explosive dynamics (exuberance) in time series using the univariate and panel recursive unit root tests proposed by Phillips et al. (2015) and Pavlidis et al. (2016). The recursive least-squares algorithm utilizes the matrix inversion lemma to avoid matrix inversion which results in significant speed improvements. Simulation of a variety of periodically-collapsing bubble processes.

  ivx: Robust Econometric Inference

Drawing statistical inference on the coefficients of a short- or long-horizon predictive regression with persistent regressors by using the IVX method of Magdalinos and Phillips (2009) and Kostakis, Magdalinos and Stamatogiannis (2015) .

  transx: Transform Univariate Time Series

Univariate time series operations that follow an opinionated design. The main principle of ‘transx’ is to keep the number of observations the same. Operations that reduce this number have to fill the observations gap..
