Description Functions Data References

Description

A package for maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) of the parameters of matrix and 3rd-order tensor normal distributions with unstructured factor variance-covariance matrices (two procedures), and for unbiased modified likelihood ratio testing (LRT) of simple and double separability for variance-covariance structures (two procedures).

mle3d_svc, for maximum likelihood estimation of the parameters of a 3rd-order tensor normal distribution

lrt2d_svc, for the unbiased modified likelihood ratio test of simple separability for a variance-covariance structure

lrt3d_svc, for the unbiased modified likelihood ratio test of double separability for a variance-covariance structure

Data

data2d, a two-dimensional data set

data3d, a three-dimensional data set
