[bandpass filter]

The Hodrick-Prescott Problem has a boundary value problem.

The band pass filter is another detrending method. Christiano and Fitzgerald developed a generalised version of the Baxter King band pass filter. In their manuscript they describe an algorithm to approximate the ideal band pass filter.



This Add-In only contains the default filter recommended in Christiano and Fitzgerald (2001).
