Hi Bruno,
Sorry for this late message. I understand what you mean!
I tried to find out the covariance of my data. But the problem is my main model (velocity) has four dependent variables (I showed it in my previous mail) and among them only V(1-10) is using real data but rest of them are simulated data. You see, my model is a sort of ARMAX type model where the first term of the model is the model output of previous time step. As far as I understand, I will need a matrix form of my explanatory variables but in this case I don't know how to do that. Can you help me?
