This matrix can be used to get from `ics`

the principal axes which is then known
as principal axis analysis.

`X` |
numeric data matrix or dataframe. |

`na.action` |
a function which indicates what should happen when the data contain 'NA's. Default is to fail. |

The `covAxis`

matrix *V* is a given for a sample of size *n* as

*
p ave{[(x_i-x_bar)S^{-1}(x_i-x_bar)']^(-1) (x_i-x_bar)'(x_i-x_bar)},*

where *x_bar* is the mean vector and *S* the regular covariance matrix.

`covAxis`

can be used to perform a Prinzipal Axis Analysis (Critchley et al. 2006) using the function `ics`

.
In that case for a centered data matrix X `covAxis`

can be used as S2 in `ics`

, where S1 should be in that
case the regular covariance matrix.

Matrix of the estimated scatter.
