If the coefficient in x[t-1] must be identically -1 then you can add that variable to the response variable before you fit a model in terms of other predictors. That is y = <some stuff> -x[t-1] ... is equivalent to y + x[t-1] = <some stuff> so model y_2 = y + x[t-1] Nick On Mon, Aug 8, 2011 at 4:37 PM, Pedro Ferreira <pedro.ferreira.cmu@gmail.com> wrote: > Dear All, > > I am running a model of x(t+1) on x(t) and x(t-1) plus other controls. > I need to restrict the coefficient on x(t-1) to be -1.

Any ideas, thoughts would be highly appreciated.
