Description Usage Arguments Value

View source: R/posteriorSEA.R

Description

This function loops over each posterior draw of a single group's Bayesian bivariate ellipse and calculates the Standard Ellipse Area (SEA) for each draw, thereby generating a distribution of SEA esimates. Not intended for direct calling outside of siberEllipses.

Usage

1

Arguments

post

a matrix of postior covariance matrix and mean estimates for a bivariate ellipse. In SIBER, this is typically one list element of the object returned by link{siberMVN}.

Value
