# st: State Space Model

 From Joshua Shindell To statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject st: State Space Model Date Tue, 20 Apr 2010 11:29:21 -0400

```Thank you for the suggestion.

After looking over the help files, the problem I am having is the
syntax of how to specify the state equation so that the time series of
the B(t) values, the sensitivites time series, is modeled as an ar(1)
process.

Thank you,

Joshua A. Shindell

I am looking to estimate a state space model of the following form:

Y(t)  = X(t)B(t) + e(t)    -  Observation Equation

B(t) = Z*B(t-1) + u(t)    -  State Equation

I am unable to specify the state equation as a function of the previous periods.

To understand the context of what I am trying to do, I am trying to
estimate stock Beta coeffiecients with a stochastic parameter
regression model using a Kalman filter, as outlined in Applied
Quantitative Methods for Trading and Investment, by Christian L.
Dunis, Jason Laws, Patrick Naďm, 2005; Chapter 7, pp 223-237.
