function [A, B] = covLINard(logtheta, x, z);

% Linear covariance function with Automatic Relevance Determination (ARD). The
% covariance function is parameterized as:
%
% k(x^p,x^q) = x^p'*inv(P)*x^q
%
% where the P matrix is diagonal with ARD parameters ell_1^2,...,ell_D^2, where
% D is the dimension of the input space. The hyperparameters are:
%
% logtheta = [ log(ell_1)
%              log(ell_2)
%               .
%              log(ell_D) ]
%
% Note that there is no bias term; use covConst to add a bias.
