[R] Structural Modelling in R-project

Hi all

I was wondering if I could ask for some assistance on two little enquiries that I have got. In the R-project, when using the StructTS function on a times series Zt, the programs return this:

StructTS(x = Zt)


    level slope seas epsilon  0.168461 0.000000 0.005113 10.743687

My frist question is the following: The variances obtained seem to be numerical values although in the literature (e.g., Kendall and Ord (1990)), they are detailed as matrices. I need to provide these matrices in my thesis but I am a bit lost as to how to write them down as.

Secondly, how does the R-project decide on the dimensions of the matrices?

Any help will be most appreciated
