This method function calculates the semi-variogram for an arbitrary
object, according to the distances in
For each pair of elements x,y in
corresponding semi-variogram is (x-y)^2/2. The semi-variogram is
useful for identifying and modeling spatial correlation structures in
observations with constant expectation and constant variance.
a numeric vector with the values to be used for calculating the semi-variogram, usually a residual vector from a fitted model.
a numeric vector with the pairwise distances
