Estimation of Diagonal Elements of Sparse Precision-Matrices

Share:

Description

This package provides several methods of estimation of the diagonal elements of a sparse precision matrix. It also includes functions for estimating robustly the off-diagonal elements of the latter by the square-root Lasso.
