(errno )

Convergence is limited by machine precision. The objective function value or rank is decreasing very slowly.

The array returned in may still be of interest.

Notes

corrmat_nearest_rank finds the nearest correlation matrix of maximum prescribed rank to an approximate correlation matrix in the Frobenius norm.

The solver is based on the Majorized Penalty Approach (MPA) proposed by Gao and Sun (2010). One of the key elements in this type of method is that the subproblems are similar to the nearest correlation matrix problem without rank constraint, and can be solved efficiently by corrmat_nearest(). The total number of subproblems solved is controlled by the arguments and . The algorithm behaviour and solver accuracy can be modified by these and other input arguments. The default values for these arguments are chosen to work well in the general case but it is recommended that you tune them to your particular problem. For a detailed description of the algorithm see Algorithmic Details.
