Abstract

top
The author shows that a decomposition of a covariance matrix = 𝐀𝐀 ' implies the corresponding model, i.e. the existence of factors f j such that a i j f j is true. The result is applied to the general linear model of factor analysis. A procedure for computing the factor score is proposed.
