Cross-covariance

returns
the cross-covariance of two discrete-time sequences, `c`

= xcov(`x`

,`y`

)`x`

and `y`

.
Cross-covariance measures the similarity between `x`

and
shifted (lagged) copies of `y`

as a function of
the lag. If `x`

and `y`

have
different lengths, the function appends zeros at the end of the shorter
vector so it has the same length as the other.

`c = xcov(___,`

limits
the lag range from –`maxlag`

)`maxlag`

to `maxlag`

.
This syntax accepts one or two input sequences. `maxlag`

defaults
to *N* – 1.
