Computes a nonlinearity statistic based on Teräsvirta's nonlinearity test of a time series. The statistic is $$10X^2/T$$ where $$X^2$$ is the Chi-squared statistic from Teräsvirta's test, and T is the length of the time series. This takes large values when the series is nonlinear, and values around 0 when the series is linear.
