Yes, it seems the same. But note that the paper computes the

If you mean R, use the Box.test() function. If you mean theory,
see any good book on time series like Brockwell and Davis'
Introduction to Time Series and Forecasting.

I can't help you here since I don't have the 5-minute data used in
the paper.
