```#' Recovering a Symmetric Matrix from Its Lower Triangular Matrix
#'
#' This function recovers a symmetric matrix from the vector consisting of its
#' lower triangular elements.
#'
#' \code{diag = FALSE} is the case where a correlation matrix whose diagonal
#' elements are 1, therefore there is no need in storing the diagonal elements.
#' @param lower.tri.vector a numerical vector containing the lower triangular
#'   elements of the symmetric matrix.
#' @param diag a logical indicator, \code{TRUE} or \code{FALSE}, indicating if
#'   \code{lower.tri.vector} contains diagonal elements of the symmetric matrix or not.
#' @return The function \code{varbeta} returns the original symmetric matrix. We
#'   only use \code{diag = FALSE} to recover the correlation matrix, because
#'   diagonal elements of a correlation matrix are all 1, so there is no reason
#'   to store these diagonal elements in this case.
