Namespace:  Meta.Numerics.Statistics
Assembly:  Meta.Numerics (in Meta.Numerics.dll) Version: (
public UncertainValue Autocovariance(
	int k


Type: SystemInt32
The lag index, which must lie between 0 and n-1.

Return Value

Type: UncertainValue
The best estimate, with uncertainty, of the lag-k autocovariance of the population.

Note that, unlike the sample autocovariance (Autocovariance), and unlike the true population autocovariance, the estimated population autocovariance is not guaranteed to be positive definite when expressed as a matrix Ci,j = c[|i-j|].
