Analysis of linear relations between variables, given a third one, can be investigated for three-way three-mode data, by defining new measures of linear dependence between occasions. In this paper, two partial correlation coefficients between matrices are proposed. Their properties are analyzed, in particular with respect to the absence of conditional linear dependence.
