Multivariate linear regression

` beta = mvregress(X,Y)` returns
the estimated coefficients for a multivariate normal regression of
the

` beta = mvregress(X,Y,Name,Value)` returns
the estimated coefficients using additional options specified by one
or more name-value pair arguments. For example, you can specify the
estimation algorithm, initial estimate values, or maximum number of
iterations for the regression.
