`structureCovariances.Rd`

Performs a structure of a covariance matrix test.

structureCovariances(x, Sigma = "identity", ..., covTest = Nagao1973)

x | data |
---|---|

Sigma | Population covariance matrix |

... | other options passed to covTest method |

covTest | structure of covariance matrix test method |

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

`statistic` | the value of equality 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 equality of covariance test was performed |

`data.name` | a character string giving the names of the data |

The `structureCovariances`

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

functions.
