oas
(X, *, assume_centered=False)[source]¶ Estimate covariance with the Oracle Approximating Shrinkage algorithm.
 Parameters
 Xarraylike of shape (n_samples, n_features)
Data from which to compute the covariance estimate.
 assume_centeredbool, default=False
If True, data will not be centered before computation. Useful to work with data whose mean is significantly equal to zero but is not exactly zero. If False, data will be centered before computation.
 Returns
 shrunk_covarraylike of shape (n_features, n_features)
Shrunk covariance.
 shrinkagefloat
Coefficient in the convex combination used for the computation of the shrunk estimate.
Notes
The regularised (shrunk) covariance is:
(1  shrinkage) * cov + shrinkage * mu * np.identity(n_features)
where mu = trace(cov) / n_features
The formula we used to implement the OAS is slightly modified compared to the one given in the article. See
