## Martingale Difference Divergence

### Description

mdd measures conditional mean dependence of Y given X, where each contains one variable (univariate) or more variables (multivariate).

### Usage

mdd(X, Y, compute = "C", center = "U")


### Arguments

 X A vector, matrix or data frame, where rows represent samples, and columns represent variables. Y A vector, matrix or data frame, where rows represent samples, and columns represent variables. compute The method for computation, including C: computation implemented in C code; R: computation implemented in R code. center The approach for centering, including U: U-centering which leads to an unbiased estimator; D: double-centering which leads to a biased estimator.

### Value

mdd returns the squared martingale difference divergence of Y given X.

### Examples

# X, Y are vectors with 10 samples and 1 variable
X <- rnorm(10)
Y <- rnorm(10)

mdd(X, Y, compute = "C")
mdd(X, Y, compute = "R")

# X, Y are 10 x 2 matrices with 10 samples and 2 variables
X <- matrix(rnorm(10 * 2), 10, 2)
Y <- matrix(rnorm(10 * 2), 10, 2)

mdd(X, Y, center = "U")
mdd(X, Y, center = "D")
