Abstract. The covariance matrix is a well known tool for analyzing data. Nevertheless, the way in which it is traditionally used doesn't give much information about local behaviors in the data. In this talk I will introduce an extension of the covariance matrix which will help reveal local geometric information of the data. Applications of this new method to data clustering will be discussed.
