I am encountering a problem while doing factor analysis in R. I am using
correlation matrix of the performance data of funds.And it gives me error
message saying singular matrix in use. Now when I try to find the
determinant of this matrix it is indeed singular. The problem is when I use
same matrix for principal component analysis it works. I was wondering if
any of you could help me with this.
