covariance {BDgraph}R Documentation

Estimated covariance matrix


Provides the estimated covariance matrix.


 covariance( bdgraph.obj, round = 2 ) 



An object of S3 class "bdgraph", from function bdgraph. It also can be an object of S3 class "ssgraph", from the function ssgraph::ssgraph() of R package ssgraph::ssgraph().


A value for rounding all probabilities to the specified number of decimal places.


A matrix which corresponds the estimated covariance matrix.
