This will be explained as a flow chart showing where
Fisher's initial hypotheses come in and how the data
are studied under the conjectured distribution : usually
multivariate normal.
There are several books on Multivariate Analaysis that
follow this paradigm and I will not go into any details,
but it makes sense to bear in mind that if one does know
from previous studies for instance that the data will be
normal multivariate, there is only a simple estimation
problem left, all the possible information from
the data is summarised by the mean and variance covariance
matrix and no more is to be said.
