Identification of ARMA processes

Last week (in the MAT8181 course) in order to identify the orders of an ARMA process, we’ve seen the eacf method, and I mentioned the scan method, introduced in Tsay and Tiao (1985). The code below – to produce the output of the scan procedure – has been adapted from an old code by Steve Chen (where I included a visualization of the p-values, with the following colors)

The procedure was described in the course, last Thursday,

arma.scan=function(z,ar.max=15,ma.max=15,alpha=0.01)
{
  ym=function(z,t,m){return(z[t:(t-m)])}
  n=length(z)
  z=z - mean(z)
  cmax=ma.max + 1
  rmax=ar.max + 1
  corref=matrix(0,nrow=rmax,ncol=cmax)
  cmj.table=matrix(0,nrow=rmax,ncol=cmax)
  pv=matrix(0,nrow=rmax,ncol=cmax)
  mark=matrix(rep("X",(rmax)*(cmax)),nrow=rmax,ncol=cmax)
  Rnames=paste("AR",0:(ar.max),sep="-")
  Cnames=paste("MA",0:(ma.max),sep="-")
  rownames(corref)=Rnames
  colnames(corref)=Cnames
  rownames(cmj.table)=Rnames
  colnames(cmj.table)=Cnames
  rownames(pv)=Rnames
  colnames(pv)=Cnames
  rownames(mark)=Rnames
  colnames(mark)=Cnames
  for (m in 0:ar.max)
  {
   m1=m+1
   for (j in 0:ma.max)
   {
   j1=j+1 
   if (m == 0 && j != 0)  
   {
      racf=acf(z,plot=FALSE)$acf[1:(j+1)]    
      lamb=racf[j+1]^2    
      corref[m1,j]=round(lamb,4)
      dmj=1 + 2*sum(racf[1:j]^2)
      cmj=-1*(n-m-j)*log(1.0 - lamb/dmj)
      pvalue =pchisq(cmj,1,lower.tail=FALSE)
      pv[m1,j]=round(pvalue,4)
      cmj.table[m1,j]=round(cmj,4)
      mark[m1,j]=ifelse(pvalue > alpha,"O","X")    
    } 
    else if (m != 0 && j == 0) 
    {
      racf=pacf(z,plot=FALSE)$acf[1:(m+1)]
      lamb=racf[m+1]^2
      corref[m1,j1]=round(lamb,4)

      mark[m1,j1]=ifelse(pvalue > alpha,"O","X")
    }

Consider the following simulated time series,

> s=arima.sim(n=200,model=list(ar=c(0,0,0,.4,0,0,0,.5),ma=c(0,0,1))) 
> plot(s,type="l")

The output is here

Of course, it is possible to ask for larger values,
