GraphicalModels :: gaussianRing(Digraph)

gaussianRing(Digraph) -- ring of Gaussian correlations of a graphical model coming from a digraph

Synopsis

Description

This function creates a polynomial ring in the indeterminates $s_{(i,j)}$ associated to the covariance matrix of the model plus two new lists of indeterminates:

- The $l_{(i,j)}$ indeterminates consist of regression coefficients associated to the directed edges in the graph.

- The $p_{(i,j)}$ indeterminates in the gaussianRing are the nonzero entries in the covariance matrix of the error terms in the graphical model associatd to a mixed graph with bidirected edges.

Note that since version 2.0 of the package, gaussianRing of a directed graph is built as a gaussianRing of a mixed graph with only directed edges, see gaussianRing(MixedGraph).
