Hi, The vector in the first column is the common vector. It is the independent variable in the subsequent regressions - I am regressing first to find the correlation between it and each of the other vectors. It's all numbers. OLS regressions. I am estimating the parameters through a secondary regression on the residuals of the first and then some basic algebra. It's an Ornstein- Uhlenbeck process, I am using the first procedure outlined here http://www.sitmo.com/article/calibrating-the-ornstein-uhlenbeck-model/ I am not so much worried about the time (although that too is a concern) but the actual structure. Should it just be a long while loop? Thanks, A. > You haven't said what the elements of A and the common vector are. > Are they all numeric?
