interval_normalization {clusterSim}R Documentation

Types of normalization formulas for interval-valued symbolic variables

Description

Types of normalization formulas for interval-valued symbolic variables

Usage

interval_normalization(x,dataType="simple",type="n0",y=NULL,...)

Arguments

x

matrix dataset or symbolic table object

dataType

Type of symbolic data table passed to function,

'sda' - full symbolicDA format object;

'simple' - three dimensional array with lower and upper bound of intervals in third dimension;

'separate_tables' - lower bounds of intervals in x, upper bounds in y;

'rows' - lower and upper bound of intervals in neighbouring rows;

'columns' - lower and upper bound of intervals in neighbouring columns

type

type of normalization:

n0 - without normalization

n1 - standardization ((x-mean)/sd)

n2 - positional standardization ((x-median)/mad)

n3 - unitization ((x-mean)/range)

n3a - positional unitization ((x-median)/range)

n4 - unitization with zero minimum ((x-min)/range)

n5 - normalization in range <-1,1> ((x-mean)/max(abs(x-mean)))

n5a - positional normalization in range <-1,1> ((x-median)/max(abs(x-median)))

n6 - quotient transformation (x/sd)

n6a - positional quotient transformation (x/mad)

n7 - quotient transformation (x/range)

n8 - quotient transformation (x/max)

n9 - quotient transformation (x/mean)

n9a - positional quotient transformation (x/median)

n10 - quotient transformation (x/sum)

n11 - quotient transformation (x/sqrt(SSQ))

n12 - normalization ((x-mean)/sqrt(sum((x-mean)^2)))

n12a - positional normalization ((x-median)/sqrt(sum((x-median)^2)))

n13 - normalization with zero being the central point ((x-midrange)/(range/2))

y

matrix or dataset with upper bounds of intervals if argument dataType is uuqual to "separate_tables"

...

arguments passed to sum, mean, min sd, mad and other aggregation functions. In particular: na.rm - a logical value indicating whether NA values should be stripped before the computation

Value

Normalized data
