    Relation algebra - matrix construction

    Hi, In a DEA-software I have, I must construct logical weights. These weights are constructed as a matrix solution of relationships between the variables. In the DEA analysis, the weights are used as restrictions in the linear programming. Lets say I have 5 variables (X1,X2,Z1,Z2,Z3), and...

    How to use a Distance Matrix as an Independent Variable?

    Hello, Let's say I have 100 locations. I know the distance between each location (i.e. distance matrix). How can I use the distance matrix (or some derivative) as an independent variable to access significance (if any) with the dependent/response variable(s)? Any ideas? Thanks,
