Summary: The author shows that a decomposition of a covariance matrix $\bold{\sum = AA'}$ implies the corresponding model, i.e. the existence of factors $f_j$ such that $\sum a_{ij}f_j$ is true. The result is applied to the general linear model of factor analysis. A procedure for computing the factor score is proposed. (English)
