public class StorelessCovariance extends Covariance
This class is based on a paper written by Philippe Pébay: Formulas for Robust, OnePass Parallel Computation of Covariances and ArbitraryOrder Statistical Moments, 2008, Technical Report SAND20086212, Sandia National Laboratories.
Note: the underlying covariance matrix is symmetric, thus only the upper triangular part of the matrix is stored and updated each increment.
Constructor and Description 

StorelessCovariance(int dim)
Create a bias corrected covariance matrix with a given dimension.

StorelessCovariance(int dim,
boolean biasCorrected)
Create a covariance matrix with a given number of rows and columns and the
indicated bias correction.

Modifier and Type  Method and Description 

void 
append(StorelessCovariance sc)
Appends
sc to this, effectively aggregating the computations in sc
with this. 
double 
getCovariance(int xIndex,
int yIndex)
Get the covariance for an individual element of the covariance matrix.

RealMatrix 
getCovarianceMatrix()
Returns the covariance matrix

double[][] 
getData()
Return the covariance matrix as twodimensional array.

int 
getN()
This
Covariance method is not supported by a StorelessCovariance ,
since the number of bivariate observations does not have to be the same for different
pairs of covariates  i.e., N as defined in Covariance.getN() is undefined. 
void 
increment(double[] data)
Increment the covariance matrix with one row of data.
