eigen_bam {bamm}R Documentation

eigen_bam: Compute the Eigen system of two bam objects

Description

Calculates the Eigen values and Eigen vectors of bam objects

Usage

eigen_bam(A = NULL, M = NULL, which_eigen = 1, rmap = TRUE)

Arguments

A

A bam object of class setA.

M

A bam object of class setM.

which_eigen

An integer representing the which eigen value and eigen vector will be computed.

rmap

Logical. If TRUE the function will return a map of the eigen vector of the product AM.

Details

The eigenvector associated with the dominant eigenvalue of an adjacency matrix provides information about the number of forms in which a cell can be visited from other cells. Details about the eigen analysis in the context of the area of distribution can be found in Soberon and Osorio-Olvera (2022).

Value

A list with four objects. 1) eigen_values (these are indicated in which_eigen parameter of the function), 2) eigen_vectors (the corresponding eigen vectors of each eigen value), 3) Standardized eigen vectors (0 to 1), 4) A RasterLayer depicting the information of the first eigen vector of the system.
