`"E"`

equal variance (one-dimensional)

`"V"`

variable/unqual variance (one-dimensional)

**multivariate mixture**

`"EII"`

spherical, equal volume

`"VII"`

spherical, unequal volume

`"EEI"`

diagonal, equal volume and shape

`"VEI"`

diagonal, varying volume, equal shape

`"EVI"`

diagonal, equal volume, varying shape

`"VVI"`

diagonal, varying volume and shape

`"EEE"`

ellipsoidal, equal volume, shape, and orientation

`"VEE"`

ellipsoidal, equal shape and orientation (*)

`"EVE"`

**single component**

`"X"`
