Covariance Matrix of the EBA Utility Scale

Description

Computes the (normalized) covariance matrix of the utility scale from the covariance matrix of elimination-by-aspects (EBA) model parameters.

Usage

cov.u(object, norm = "sum")

Arguments

 object an object of class eba, typically the result of a call to eba norm either sum (default), a number from 1 to number of stimuli, or NULL; see uscale for details

Details

The additivity rule for covariances cov(x + y, z) = cov(x, z) + cov(y, z) is used for the computations.

If norm is not NULL, the unnormalized covariance matrix is transformed using a^2 cov(u), where the constant a results from the type of normalization applied.

Value

The (normalized) covariance matrix of the utility scale.
