Proportionality correlation coefficient matrix {Compositional}R Documentation

Proportionality correlation coefficient matrix

Description

Proportionality correlation coefficient matrix.

Usage

pcc(x)

Arguments

x

A numerical matrix with the compositional data. Zeros are not allowed as the logarithm is applied.

Details

The function returns the proportionality correlation coefficient matrix. See Lovell et al. (2015) for more information.

Value

A matrix with the alr transformed data (if alr is used) or with the compositional data (if the alrinv is used).
