The function “mal.cond” calculates a R conditional kinship matrix starting from a kinship matrix obtained by the applicatio of the Malecot migration model on a colum stochastic migration matrix.
Much more useful than the Phi matrix, the conditional kinship R matrix is the basis for further analysis by means of Mantel tests, Procrustes rotations and cluster analysis.
Returns a square symmetrical matrix.
