#' Convert correlation matrix to MI matrix
#'
#' The correlation \eqn{\rho_{ij}} between node \eqn{i} and \eqn{j} is converted into mutual information (MI) matrix by using equation [1]:
#' \deqn{MI=-\frac{1}{2} (1-\rho_{ij}^2)}
#' if the observation data is normal distributed.

#' @param x a correlation matrix

#' @return \code{cor2mi} returns a mutual information matrix.
