Is it possible to introduce dummy variables or explanatory variables in the GARCH variance equation (garchset and garchfit).This is done in the mean (ARMAX) equation through the input 'Regress' in garchset, but I have not seen how it can be done for the variance equation as well.So How can i find a closed form solution to do it? I appreciate any advice on the question.
