## Covariance Matrix of Segregation Coefficients in a Multi-class Case

### Description

Returns the covariance matrix of the segregation coefficients in a multi-class case based on the NNCT, ct. The covariance matrix is of dimension k(k+1)/2 \times k(k+1)/2 and its entry i,j correspond to the entries in the rows i and j of the output of ind.seg.coeff(k). The segregation coefficients in the multi-class case are the extension of Pielou's segregation coefficient for the two-class case. These covariances are valid under RL or conditional on Q and R under CSR.

The argument covN is the covariance matrix of N_{ij} (concatenated rowwise).

### Usage

cov.seg.coeff(ct, covN)


### Arguments

 ct A nearest neighbor contingency table covN The k^2 \times k^2 covariance matrix of row-wise vectorized entries of NNCT

### Value

The k(k+1)/2 x k(k+1)/2 covariance matrix of the segregation coefficients for the multi-class case based on the NNCT, ct
