Test of Homogeneity of Covariance Matrices Box's M

BoxesM(x, ...)

x | data as a data frame, list of matrices, grouped data frame, or resample object |
---|---|

... | other options passed to covTest method |

A list with class "htest" containing the following components:

`statistic` |
the value of homogeneity of covariance test statistic |

`parameter` |
the degrees of freedom for the chi-squared statistic |

`p.value` |
the p=value for the test |

`estimate` |
the estimated covariances if less than 5 dimensions |

`null.value` |
the specified hypothesized value of the covariance difference |

`alternative` |
a character string describing the alternative hyposthesis |

`method` |
a character string indicating what type of homogeneity of covariance test was performed |

The `homogeneityCovariances`

function is a wrapper function that formats the data
for the specific `covTest`

functions.
