choicealpha {ClustGeo} | R Documentation |
This function calculates the proportion (resp. normalized proportion) of explained inertia of
the partitions in K clusters obtained with the Ward-like hclustgeo
procedure for a range
of mixing parameters alpha. When the proportion (resp. normalized proportion) of explained inertia based on D0 decreases,
the proportion (resp. normalized proportion)
of explained inertia based on D1 increases. The plot of these criteria can help the user in the choice of the
mixing parameter alpha.
choicealpha(D0, D1, range.alpha, K, wt = NULL, scale = TRUE, graph = TRUE)
D0 |
an object of class "dist" with the dissimilarities between the n observations.
The function |
D1 |
an object of class "dist" with other dissimilarities between the same n observations. |
range.alpha |
a vector of real values between 0 and 1. |
K |
the number of clusters. |
wt |
vector with the weights of the observations. By default, wt=NULL corresponds to the case where all observations are weighted by 1/n. |
scale |
if TRUE the two dissimilarity matrix are scaled i.e. divided by their max. |
graph |
if TRUE the two graphics (proportion and normalized proportion of explained inertia) are drawn. |
