Random Psuedo Wishart Matrix

Generate n random matrices, distributed according to the Wishart distribution with parameters Sigma and df, W_p(Sigma, df).

Usage
rPsuedoWishart(n, df, Sigma, covariance = FALSE, simplify = "array")
Arguments
n

integer: the number of replications.

df

numeric parameter, “degrees of freedom”.

Sigma

positive definite ($p\times p$) “scale” matrix, the matrix parameter of the distribution.

covariance

logical on whether a covariance matrix should be generated

simplify

logical or character string; should the result be simplified to a vector, matrix or higher dimensional array if possible? For sapply it must be named and not abbreviated. The default value, TRUE, returns a vector or matrix if appropriate, whereas if simplify = "array" the result may be an array of “rank” ($=$length(dim(.))) one higher than the result of FUN(X[[i]]).

Details

If X_1, ..., X_m is a sample of m independent multivariate Gaussians with mean vector 0, and covariance matrix Sigma, the distribution of M = X'X is W_p(Sigma, m).

Value

A numeric array of dimension p * p * n, where each array is a positive semidefinite matrix, a realization of the Wishart distribution W_p(Sigma, df)
