Generation of data set containing two clusters with untypical parabolic shapes (worms)

Description

Generation of data set containing two clusters with untypical parabolic shapes (first is given by y=x^2, second by y=-(x-a)^2+b with distortion from <-tol,+tol>)

Usage

shapes.worms(numObjects=180,shape1x1=-2,shape1x2=2,shape2x1=-0.5,
shape2x2=2.5,shape2a=1.5,shape2b=5.5,tol=0.1,outputCsv="", outputCsv2="", 
outputColNames=TRUE, outputRowNames=TRUE)

Arguments

numObjects

number of objects in each cluster - positive integer value or vector with length=2

shape1x1

starting value on abscissa axis for shape 1

shape1x2

end value on abscissa axis for shape 1

shape2x1

starting value on abscissa axis for shape 2

shape2x2

end value on abscissa axis for shape 2

shape2a

parameter a of shape 2

shape2b

parameter b of shape 2

tol

tolerance - each generated point is randomized by adding runif(1,0,tol)

outputCsv

optional, name of csv file with generated data (first column contains id, second - number of cluster and others - data)

outputCsv2

optional, name of csv (a comma as decimal point and a semicolon as field separator) file with generated data (first column contains id, second - number of cluster and others - data)

outputColNames

outputColNames=TRUE indicates that output file (given by outputCsv and outputCsv2 parameters) contains first row with column names

outputRowNames

outputRowNames=TRUE indicates that output file (given by outputCsv and outputCsv2 parameters) contains a vector of row names

Value

clusters

cluster number for each object

data

generated data - matrix with objects in rows and variables in columns
