This class, derived from the virtual class `"CovRobust"`

accomodates
MCD Estimates of multivariate location and scatter computed by the
‘Fast MCD’ algorithm.

Objects can be created by calls of the form `new("CovMcd", ...)`

,
but the usual way of creating `CovMcd`

objects is a call to the function
`CovMcd`

which serves as a constructor.

`alpha`

:Object of class

`"numeric"`

- the size of the subsets over which the determinant is minimized (the default is (n+p+1)/2)`quan`

:Object of class

`"numeric"`

- the number of observations on which the MCD is based. If`quan`

equals`n.obs`

, the MCD is the classical covariance matrix.`best`

:Object of class

`"Uvector"`

- the best subset found and used for computing the raw estimates. The size of`best`

is equal to`quan`

`raw.cov`

:Object of class

`"matrix"`

the raw (not reweighted) estimate of location`raw.center`

:Object of class

`"vector"`

- the raw (not reweighted) estimate of scatter`raw.mah`

:Object of class

`"Uvector"`

- mahalanobis distances of the observations based on the raw estimate of the location and scatter`raw.wt`

:Object of class

`"Uvector"`

- weights of the observations based on the raw estimate of the location and scatter`raw.cnp2`

:Object of class

`"numeric"`

- a vector of length two containing the consistency correction factor and the finite sample correction factor of the raw estimate of the covariance matrix`cnp2`

:Object of class

`"numeric"`

- a vector of length two containing the consistency correction factor and the finite sample correction factor of the final estimate of the covariance matrix.`iter`

Class `"Cov"`

.

No methods defined with class `"CovMcd"`

in the signature.
