CovRegRF: Covariance Regression with Random Forests

Covariance Regression with Random Forests ('CovRegRF') is a random forest method for estimating the covariance matrix of a multivariate response given a set of covariates. Random forest trees are built with a new splitting rule which is designed to maximize the distance between the sample covariance matrix estimates of the child nodes. The method is described in Alakus et al. (2022) <arXiv:2209.08173>. 'CovRegRF' uses 'randomForestSRC' package (Ishwaran and Kogalur, 2022) <> by freezing at the version 3.1.0. The custom splitting rule feature is utilised to apply the proposed splitting rule.
