Hi,

Can someone please help me with the following coding?

I need to create a data set of 1000 values for the following model:

X(t) = (1/((1-x)**0.4))e ,where e is a standard normal random variable and **L is the lag operator**. I don't know how to deal with the lag operator. finally I need to plot X vs. t.

But I need use the **1st 100 terms of the INFINITE BINOMIAL** expansion of the term (1/((1-x)**0.4)).

Thanks .

Dear malakaext,

Since I can't observe the lag operator in your expression, I'll try to explain you the usage of lag function in general.

x = lagN(varname); - this will produce the value of 'varname' on a step t - N.

So y = x(t-1) will be

y = lag1(x);

y = x(t-3) will be

y = lag3(x);

etc.

**Notice:** consider reading help about lag function and using it in conditional statements.

The example:

X(t) = (1/((1-X(t-1))**0.4))* e;

data Xmodel;

var t X e;

do t = 1 to 1000;

e = rand('NORMAL', 0, 1);

X =( 1/( (1 - coalesce(lag1(X),0))**0.4 ) ) * e ;

output;

end;

run;
