Principal coordinate analysis using the Jensen-Shannon divergence

Description

Principal coordinate analysis using the Jensen-Shannon divergence.

Usage

esov.mds(x, k = 2, eig = TRUE)

Arguments

x

A matrix with the compositional data. Zero values are allowed.

k

The maximum dimension of the space which the data are to be represented in. This can be a number between 1 and D-1, where D denotes the number of dimensions.

eig

Should eigenvalues be returned? The default value is TRUE.

Details

The function computes the Jensen-Shannon divergence matrix and then plugs it into the classical multidimensional scaling function in the "cmdscale" function.

Value

A list with the results of "cmdscale" function.
