Nonparametric measure of multivariate dependence between several random variables proposed in Gaißer, Ruppert & Schmid (2010). Unlike Pearson's or rank correlation (Kendall's tau, Spearman's rho), it picks up dependence of any form.

> multphi2(data)


data - n x d matrix containing n realizations of d random variables, association between which is to be measures.

Output: phi - 1x1 measure of association (phi = 0 corresponds to mutual independence of variables in columns of data, phi = 1 - increasing deterministic (not necessarily linear) relationship.
