Please see the attached code and change the value “numberofvariates” that is currently 11 to see the effect on the runtime. This value is the number of conditional variables and hence the number of columns in the matrix uw. With this value of 11 the code take about 5 minutes to run (for a multivariate t-Copula with 11 degrees of freedom). With this of 12 the code take 7 minutes to run. For the case where numberofvariates the run time is 3.5 minutes. Given the increase in runtime, I can see why 30 variates takes a very long time to run. Please can you help me with improve the runtime?
tic; [rhohatT,nuhatT,nuciT] = copulafit('t',[uw(:,1:numberofvariates) v]);
etime = toc;
