Int.Corr.NN {BinNonNor} R Documentation

## Computes an intermediate correlation matrix for continuous non-normal variables given the specified correlation matrix

### Description

This function computes the intermediate correlation matrix for continuous non-normal-continuous non-normal combinations as formulated in Demirtas et al. (2012).

### Usage

Int.Corr.NN(n.NN, corr.vec = NULL, corr.mat = NULL, coef.mat)

### Arguments

 n.NN Number of continuous non-normal variables. corr.vec Vector of elements below the diagonal of correlation matrix ordered columnwise. corr.mat Specified correlation matrix. coef.mat Matrix of coefficients produced from fleishman.coef.

### Value

A correlation matrix of size n.NN*n.NN.
