NNTS Symmetric Coefficient estimation

Description

Computes the maximum likelihood estimates of the symmetric NNTS parameters

Usage

nntsestimationSymmetric(M = 0, data, maxit = 500)

Arguments

M

Number of components in the NNTS

data

Vector of angles in radians

maxit

Maximum number of iterations in the optimization algorithm

Value

coef

Vector of length M+1. The first M components are the squared moduli of the c parameters, and the last number is the mean of symmetry

loglik

Optimum log-likelihood value

AIC

Value of Akaike's Information Criterion

BIC

Value of Bayesian Information Criterion

convergence

An integer code: zero indicates successful convergence; error codes are the following: one indicates that the iteration limit maxit has been reached, and 10 indicates degeneracy of the Nelder-Mead simplex

Note

For the maximization of the loglikelihood function the function constrOptim from the package stats is used
