common.shared(id, ...)

## S3 method for class 'pedigreeList'
common.shared(id, ...)

## S3 method for class 'pedigree'
common.shared(id, ...)

Arguments

id

either a pedigree object or pedigreeList object

...

Any number of optional arguments. Not used at the moment

Details

When called with a pedigreeList, i.e., with multiple families, the routine will create a block-diagonal-symmetric ‘bdsmatrix’ object. Since the [i,j] value of the result is 0 for any two unrelated individuals i and j and a ‘bdsmatix’ utilizes sparse representation, the resulting object is often orders of magnitude smaller than an ordinary matrix. When called with a single pedigree and ordinary matrix is returned.

Value

a matrix of shared environment coefficients
