Abstract

The Vector Autoregressive (VAR) model with zero coefficient restrictions canbe formulated as a Seemingly Unrelated Regression Equation (SURE) model. Boththe response vectors and the coefficient matrix of the regression equationscomprise columns from a Toeplitz matrix. Efficient numerical and computationalmethods which exploit the Toeplitz and Kronecker product structure of thematrices are proposed. The methods are also adapted to provide numericallystable algorithms for the estimation of VAR(p) models with Granger-causedvariables. Copyright Kluwer Academic Publishers 2003
