Code

R package called tvReg (in collaboration with Ruben Fernandez-Casal). It contains functions to estimate time-varying coefficients linear models, AR, VAR, IRF and SURE models. It also plot results and calculate confidence intervals. The implementation of forecasting functions is work in progress. Instructions and examples can be found in this vignette.
