I am trying to use the function ses from the forecast package.
>From its help I have :
ses(y, h = 10, level = c(80, 95), fan = FALSE, initial = c("optimal",
"simple"), alpha = NULL, lambda = NULL, biasadj = FALSE, x = y, ...)
My query is that if I do not mention the initial value will its default
value be "optimal".
A MWE would be :
oildata <- window(oil,start=1996,end=2007)
fit3 <- ses(oildata, h=3)
In the above is the default value of initial "optimal" or "simple" ?
Note I have taken this example from https://www.otexts.org/fpp/7/1
