Calculates the path weight for a path of an undirected graph.

1 2 3 | ```
## S4 method for signature 'matrix'
qpPathWeight(X, path, Q=integer(0), M=integer(0),
normalized=TRUE, R.code.only=TRUE)
``` |

`X` |
covariance matrix. |

`path` |
character vector of consecutive vertex names defining a path in an undirected graph. |

`Q` |
indexes or names of the variables in |

`M` |
indexes or names of the variables in |

`normalized` |
logical; TRUE (default) when the calculated path weight should be normalized so that weights are comparable between paths with different endpoints, and false otherwise. |

`R.code.only` |
logical; if FALSE then the faster C implementation is used (not yet available); if TRUE then only R code is executed (default). |

Calculation of path weights. This implementation is still under development and will give only correct results with either population covariance matrices or sample covariance matrices estimated from data with n >> p. Consult (Roverato and Castelo, 2017) for further details.

The calculated path weight for the given path.

## example in Figure 1 from (Castelo and Roverato, 2017)
## undirected graph on 9 vertices
edg <- matrix(c(1, 4,
2, 4,
3, 4,
4, 5,
5, 6,
5, 7,
8, 9),
ncol=2, byrow=TRUE)
## create a corresponding synthetic precision matrix with
## partial correlation values set to -0.4 for all present edges
K <- matrix(0, nrow=9, ncol=9, dimnames=list(1:9, 1:9))
K[edg] <- -0.4
K <- K + t(K)
diag(K) <- 1
## calculate the corresponding covariance matrix
S <- solve(K)
## calculate networked partial correlations for all present
## edges
npc <- sapply(1:nrow(edg), function(i) qpPathWeight(S, edg[i, ]))
## note that while all partial correlations are zero for missing
## edges and are equal to -0.4 for present edges, the corresponding
## networked partial correlations are also zero for missing edges
## but may be different between them for present edges, depending on
## the connections between the vertices
cbind(edg, npc)
