correctionKernelMatrix {CEGO}R Documentation

Correction of a Kernel (Correlation) Matrix

Description

Convert a non-PSD kernel matrix with chosen approach so that it becomes a PSD matrix. Optionally, the resulting matrix is enforced to have values between -1 and 1 and a diagonal of 1s, with the repair parameter. That means, it is (optionally) converted to a valid correlation matrix. Essentially, this is a combination of correctionDefinite with repairConditionsCorrelationMatrix.

Usage

correctionKernelMatrix(mat, method = "flip", repair = TRUE, tol = 1e-08)

Arguments

mat

symmetric kernel matrix

method

string that specifies method for correction: spectrum clip "clip", spectrum flip "flip", nearest definite matrix "near", spectrum square"square", spectrum diffusion "diffusion".

repair

boolean, whether or not to use condition repair, so that elements between -1 and 1, and the diagonal values are 1.

tol

torelance value. Eigenvalues between -tol and tol are assumed to be zero.

Value

list with corrected kernel matrix mat, isPSD (boolean, whether original matrix was PSD), transformation matrix A, the matrix of eigenvectors (U) and the transformation vector (a)

Examples

x <- list(c(2,1,4,3),c(2,4,3,1),c(4,2,1,3),c(4,3,2,1),c(1,4,3,2))
D <- distanceMatrix(x,distancePermutationInsert)
K <- exp(-0.01*D)
is.PSD(K) #matrix should not be PSD
K <- correctionKernelMatrix(K)$mat
is.PSD(K) #matrix should now be CNSD
