```1. Describe better the distributions of obs to time series; i.e., describe
clearly the time series and obs with math'l notation briefly.

2. Use Conditional G-causality and/or partial G-causality, you can exceed
"the limit of max. number of variables = 11" in a VAR structure.

3. You can use R's FIAR package for CGC / PGC calculations. I advise
version 3 of that package.

4. Kamamoto Oscillators for "Graphical" GC methods perhaps may well suit to

5. Matlab's GCCA and MVGC packages cannot handle cointegration (in case
cointegrated vars exist) whereas you can handle cointegrated cases via CGC
and PGC.
