The folded power transformation

Description

The folded power transformation.

Usage

fp(x, lambda)

Arguments

x

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

lambda

The value of the power transformation, it has to be between -1 and 1. If zero values are present it has to be greater than 0. If λ=0 the additive log-ratio transformation (alr) is applied. If zero values are present λ must be strictly positive.

Details

The folded power transformation is applied to the compositional data.

Value

A matrix with the transformed data.
