##### Positive-[Semi-]definite, symmetric matrices

The class of positive-[semi-]definite, symmetric matrices.

##### Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form `new("PosSemDefSymmMatrix", ...)`

resp. `new("PosDefSymmMatrix", ...)`

.
More frequently they are created via the generating functions
`PosSemDefSymmMatrix`

resp. `PosDefSymmMatrix`

.
