snqProfitHessianDeriv: SNQ Profit function: Derivatives of the Hessian

Description Usage Arguments Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

Returns the matrix of derivatives of the vector of linear independent values of the Hessian with respect to the vector of the linear independent coefficients.

Usage

1
 snqProfitHessianDeriv( prices, weights, nFix = 0, form = 0 )

Arguments

vector of netput prices at which the derivatives should be calculated.

weights

vector of weights for normalizing prices.

nFix

number of (quasi-)fix inputs.

form
