MLE of the folded model for a given value of alpha {Compositional}R Documentation

MLE of the folded model for a given value of α

Description

MLE of the folded model for a given value of α.

Usage

alpha.mle(x, a)
a.mle(a, x)

Arguments

x

A matrix with the compositional data. No zero vaues are allowed.

a

A value of α.

Details

This is a function for choosing or estimating the value of α in the folded model (Tsagris and Stewart, 2020). It is called by a.est.

Value

If "alpha.mle" is called, a list including:

iters

The nubmer of iterations the EM algorithm required.

loglik

The maximimized log-likelihood of the folded model.

p

The estimated probability inside the simplex of the folded model.

mu

The estimated mean vector of the folded model.

su

The estimated covariance matrix of the folded model.

If "a.mle" is called, the log-likelihood is returned only.
