bdgraph.npn {BDgraph} R Documentation

## Nonparametric transfer

### Description

Transfers non-Gaussian data to Gaussian.

### Usage

 bdgraph.npn( data, npn = "shrinkage", npn.thresh = NULL )

### Arguments

 data An (n x p) matrix or a data.frame corresponding to the data (n is the sample size and p is the number of variables). npn A character with three options "shrinkage" (default), "truncation", and "skeptic". Option "shrinkage" is for the shrunken transformation, option "truncation" is for the truncated transformation and option "skeptic" is for the non-paranormal skeptic transformation. For more details see references. npn.thresh The truncation threshold; it is only for the truncated transformation (npn= "truncation"). The default value is 1/(4n^{1/4} √{π \log(n)}).

### Value

An (n \times p) matrix of transferred data, if npn = "shrinkage" or "truncation", and a non-paranormal correlation (p \times p) matrix, if npn = "skeptic".

### Examples

## Not run:
# Generating multivariate normal data from a 'random' graph
data.sim <- bdgraph.sim( n = 6, p = 4, size = 4 )
data     <- ( data.sim \$ data - 3 ) ^ 4
data

# Transfer the data by truncation
bdgraph.npn( data, npn = "truncation" )

# Transfer the data by shrunken
bdgraph.npn( data, npn = "shrunken" )

# Transfer the data by skeptic
bdgraph.npn( data, npn = "skeptic" )
