\title{Procrustean Correlation, and Variance / Covariance Matrices.}
\usage{
varls(..., nrand = 100, p.adjust.method = "holm")
corls(..., nrand = 100, p.adjust.method = "holm")
corls.partial(..., nrand = 100)
}
\arguments{
\item{...}{the set of matrices or a \code{\link[ProcMod]{procmod_frame}}
object.}
\item{nrand}{number of randomisation used to estimate the mean
covariance observed between two random matrix.
If rand is \code{NULL} or equal to \code{0}, no correction
is estimated and the raw procrustean covariances are
estimated.}
\item{p.adjust.method}{the multiple test correction method used
to adjust p values. \code{p.adjust.method}
belongsone of the folowing values: \code{"holm"},
\code{"hochberg"}, \code{"hommel"}, \code{"bonferroni"},
\code{"BH"}, \code{"BY"}, \code{"fdr"}, \code{"none"}.
The default is,set to \code{"holm"}.}
}
\value{
a \code{procmod.varls} object which corresponds to a numeric
matrix annotated by several attributes.
The following attribute is always added:
- \code{nrand} an integer value indicating the number of
randomisations used to estimate the mean of the random
covariance.
When \code{nrand} is greater than 0 a couple of attributes
is added:
- \code{rcovls} a numeric matrix containing the estimation
of the mean of the random covariance.
- \code{p.value} a numeric matrix containing the estimations
of the p.values of tests checking that the observed
covariance is larger than the mean of the random covariance.
p.values are corrected for multiple tests according to the
method specified by the \code{p.adjust.method} parameter.
}
\description{
\code{varls}, \code{corls}, \code{corls.partial} compute the procrustean
variance / covariance, correlation, or partial correlation matrices
between a set of real matrices and \code{\link[stats]{dist}} objects.
}
\details{
Procrustean covariance between two matrices X and Y, is defined as the sum
of the singular values of the X'Y matrix \insertCite{Gower:71:00,Lingoes:74:00}{ProcMod}.
Both the X and Y matrices must have the same number of rows.
The variances and covariances and correlations are corrected
to avoid over fitting \insertCite{Coissac-Eric:19:00}{ProcMod}.
Partial correlation coefficients are computed by inverting the correlation followed
by a normalisation by the diagonal of the inverted matrix.
The inputs must be numeric matrices or \code{\link[stats]{dist}} object.
The set of input matrices can be aggregated un a
\code{\link[ProcMod]{procmod_frame}}.
Before computing the coefficients, matrices are projected into an
orthogonal space using the \code{\link[ProcMod]{ortho}} function.
The denominator n - 1 is used which gives an unbiased estimator of the
(co)variance for i.i.d. observations.
Scaling a covariance matrix into a correlation one can be achieved in many ways,
mathematically most appealing by multiplication with a diagonal matrix from left
and right, or more efficiently by using sweep(.., FUN = "/") twice.
The \code{\link[stats]{cov2cor}} function is even a bit more efficient,
and provided mostly for didactical reasons.

# Build Three matrices of 3 rows.
