further arguments passed to or from other methods. 
The summary.manova
method uses a multivariate test statistic
for the summary table. Wilks' statistic is most popular in the
literature, but the default Pillai–Bartlett statistic is recommended
by Hand and Taylor (1987).
The table gives a transformation of the test statistic which has approximately an F distribution. The approximations used follow SPLUS and SAS (the latter apart from some cases of the Hotelling–Lawley statistic), but many other distributional approximations exist: see Anderson (1984) and Krzanowski and Marriott (1994) for further references. All four approximate F statistics are the same when the term being tested has one degree of freedom, but in other cases that for the Roy statistic is an upper bound.
The tolerance tol
is applied to the QR decomposition of the
residual correlation matrix (unless some response has essentially zero
residuals, when it is unscaled). Thus the default value guards
against very highly correlated responses: it can be reduced but doing
so will allow rather inaccurate results and it will normally be better
to transform the responses to remove the high correlation.
