Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0by the way, do you know what variance and covariance means. I mean, what is its physical meaning ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I dont know how to say that, but, what I want to know is what is the they represent if I get the covariance, the variance, or even the eigenvectors. I know how to get them but I dont know what information they bring. For example if I derivate a function, I know that what im getting is the slope; in the same way, if I integrate, I know that Im calculation the area under the curve. Does it make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes the variance tells you how spread out the data is or how far away you get from the mean covariance tells you how closely related 2 dependent variables are, if 2 variables are independent then they have a covariance of 0 high covariance means high dependence
