Thanks for this, it's a good start. I am using a univariate series
indeed. Do you know where I could find the codes for StructTS please? I
can't seem to find it. Thanks again

if you have a univariate time series and you
want to break it into its various components, 
then you get the scalars based on a decomposition. 

if you have a kalman filter/
basic strucutural model type setup ( i.e see harvey 1990, can 't
remember title ), then you'll get matrices but I don't think structTS is
used for the latter ? Professor Ripley,  correct me if i'm wrong on that

because I don't use structTS.

I can't say much else but you may want to look at the DLM package if you
are trying to  do what I think you might be trying to do ?
