It tests the positive definiteness of a square matrix or a
list of square matrices. It returns `TRUE`

if the matrix is
positive definite. It returns `FALSE`

if the matrix is either
non-positive definite or not symmetric. Variables with `NA`

in the diagonals will be removed
before testing. It returns `NA`

when there are missing correlations even after deleting
the missing variables.
