Plot Autocovariance and Autocorrelation Functions

Description

Plot method for objects of class "acf".

Usage

## S3 method for class 'acf'
plot(x, ci = 0.95, type = "h", xlab = "Lag", ylab = NULL,
     ylim = NULL, main = NULL,
     ci.col = "blue", ci.type = c("white", "ma"),
     max.mfrow = 6, ask = Npgs > 1 && dev.interactive(),
     mar = if(nser > 2) c(3,2,2,0.8) else par("mar"),
     oma = if(nser > 2) c(1,1.2,1,1) else par("oma"),
     mgp = if(nser > 2) c(1.5,0.6,0) else par("mgp"),
     xpd = par("xpd"),
     cex.main = if(nser > 2) 1 else par("cex.main"),
     verbose = getOption("verbose"),
     ...)

Arguments

x

an object of class "acf".

ci

coverage probability for confidence interval. Plotting of the confidence interval is suppressed if ci is zero or negative.

type

the type of plot to be drawn, default to histogram like vertical lines.

xlab

the x label of the plot.

ylab

the y label of the plot.

ylim

numeric of length 2 giving the y limits for the plot.

main

overall title for the plot.

ci.col

colour to plot the confidence interval lines.

ci.type

should the confidence limits assume a white noise input or for lag k an MA(k-1) input?

max.mfrow

positive integer; for multivariate x indicating how many rows and columns of plots should be put on one page, using par(mfrow = c(m,m)).

ask

logical; if TRUE, the user is asked before a new page is started.

mar, oma, mgp, xpd, cex.main

graphics parameters as in par(*), by default adjusted to use smaller than default margins for multivariate x only.

verbose

logical. Should R report extra information on progress?

...

graphics parameters to be passed to the plotting routines.

Note

The confidence interval plotted in plot.acf is based on an uncorrelated series and should be treated with appropriate caution. Using ci.type = "ma" may be less potentially misleading.

Examples

require(graphics)


z4  <- ts(matrix(rnorm(400), 100, 4), start = c(1961, 1), frequency = 12)
z7  <- ts(matrix(rnorm(700), 100, 7), start = c(1961, 1), frequency = 12)
acf(z4)
acf(z7, max.mfrow = 7)   # squeeze onto 1 page
acf(z7) # multi-page
