Dear matlab community,
I looked into using xcov to calculate auto-covariances of a Tx1 time series vector. Using xcov in the first instance, it seemed as if this function would not devide by T as opposed to what the general formula for sample autocovariance would suggest: ?
Can someone confirm whether I need to devide by T to get a vector of sample auto-covariances? If I do not devide by T, the covariances seem to explode, as more and more terms are added. It is also not clear from the documentation of xcov.
