select {adjclust}R Documentation

Clustering selection

Description

Clustering selection from a chac object with the slope heuristic or the broken stick heuristic

Usage

select(
  x,
  type = c("capushe", "bstick"),
  k.max = NULL,
  graph = FALSE,
  pct = 0.15
)

Arguments

x

an object of class 'chac'

type

model selection approach between slope heuristic ("capushe") and broken stick approach ("bstick")

k.max

maximum number of clusters that can be selected. Default to NULL, in which case it is set to \min(\max(100, \frac{n}{\log(n)}), \frac{n}{2}) where n is the number of objects to be clustered for capushe and to n for the broken stick model

graph

logical. Whether the diagnostic plot for the capushe selection is displayed or not. Default to FALSE

pct

minimum percentage of points for the plateau selection in capushe selection. See DDSE for further details

Value

The function returns the clustering selected by the slope heuristic, as implemented in the R package capushe.
