rndWishart error with scalar covariance matrix
when I type
in Gauss 13, I get the error message “(0) : error G0648 : Incorrect input: Covariance matrix not positive definite”, although the scalar covariance “matrix” (second input, = 2) is obviously positive definite.
Is this problem related to the input being a scalar? I get no error message when I type “2*eye(2)” instead of “2” in the command above. On the other hand, the help file does not seem to exclude the case that the covariance matrix is a scalar.
Thanks in advance,
PS: I am using Kernel 13.0.9.
The error is indeed being returned because the incoming covariance matrix is a scalar. I will forward this to development and get their thoughts on the matter.
