#' @title Hyunh and Feldt's epsilon measure of sphericity
#' 
#' @description HyunhFeldtEpsilon() is a measure of sphericity created by 
#' \insertCite{gg58;textual}{superb}. The original measure was biased
#' and therefore, \insertCite{hf76;textual}{superb} produced a revised version
#' (note that the 1976 paper contained typos that were uncorrected
#' in SPSS; \insertCite{l91;textual}{superb})
#' 
#' @md
#'
#' @param dta a data.frame
#' @param cols a vector of column names indicating the relevant
#' columns on which to compute epsilon. Any other columns are ignored.
#' 
#' @return returns the Hyunh-Feldt estimate of sphericity epsilon
