coinertia {cocorresp}R Documentation

Co-inertia analysis

Description

Performs a co-inertia of the triplets (Q_1,K_1,R_0) and (Q_2,K_2,R_0).

Usage

coinertia(y, ...)

## Default S3 method:
coinertia(y, x, n.axes = NULL, weights = NULL,
          symmetric = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

y, x

matrices or data frames of the two data sets for which axes of covariance are sought.

n.axes

numeric; the number of coinertia axes to retain.

weights

a vector of weights for the samples. If NULL, weights are chosen from the row sums of y (symmetric = FALSE) or the average of the row sums of y and x (symmetric = TRUE).

symmetric

logical; should a symmetric set of weights be used. See Details.

...

arguments passed to other functions. Currently ignored.

Value

An object of class "coinertia", which is a list with the following components:

scores

a list of ordination scores, with components species and sites, each of which is a list with components Y and X that refer to the scores for the input matrices y and x respectively.

weights

numeric vector of row weights used in the analysis.

lambda

numeric vector of Eigenvalues.

n.axes

numeric; the number of coinertia axes extracted

symmetric

logical; was a symmetric analysis performed?

call

the matched call.
