Multivariate normal random values simulation on the simplex

Description

Multivariate normal random values simulation on the simplex.

Usage

rcompnorm(n, m, s, type = "alr")

Arguments

n

The sample size, a numerical value.

m

The mean vector in R^d.

s

The covariance matrix in R^d.

type

The alr (type = "alr") or the ilr (type = "ilr") is to be used for closing the Euclidean data onto the simplex.

Details

The algorithm is straightforward, generate random values from a multivariate normal distribution in R^d and brings the values to the simplex S^d using the inverse of a log-ratio transformation.

Value

A matrix with the simulated data.
