 Posted: November 06 2008 Does the iCosmo web interface Fisher matrix calculation use a 2-point or 4-point derivative by default?

 Posted: November 06 2008 Hi Ivan, The calculation on the web interface uses the 2-point derivative. The source code has the option to do both the 2-point or 4-point derivative, and you can download the source code here: http://www.icosmo.org/Initiative_Web/Tools.html By default the source code does the calculation using the 2point-derivative, but this can be made more accurate by using a fiducial structure with: fid = set_fiducial(calc_in=speed:0) Cheers, Anais.

 Posted: March 29 2010 Dear Member, I have studied the source to obtain the math schema how the fisher matrix is calculated. I discoverd that there are 2 methods. sne and boa. Do I assume correctly that the fisher matrix is calculated so?: fisher = TRANSPOSE[DeriveMatrix] * INVERSE[covarianceMAtrix] * DeriveMatrix Sorry for my stupid question: But what is the covariancematrix there? In teh source at boa the cov = INVERSE[fisher]. I am completely confused. Teh reson for my question are: in a book [Excel for chemists] there is written the attached picture ( and ). CAN I SAY, that this P[i,j] is also the fisher matrix? But there I miss the covariance matrix. How is the covariacne matrix calculated? Thanks a lot for getting understand the fundamentals of the fisher calculation.
