test.l.max {EMMAgeo}R Documentation

Find maximum possible wight transformation value.


This function approximates the highest possible value for l in a nested loop. It uses test.l and does not need any further parameters. It starts with l between zero and 0.5 and iteratively approximates the last possible vlaues for which the weight-transformed matrix of the input data still allows eigenspace extraction.


test.l.max(X, n = 10, ...)



Numeric matrix, input data set with m samples (rows) and n variables (columns).


Numeric scalar, number of loop runs and values per loop.


Further arguments passed to the function.


Numeric scalar, maximal possible l value.
