Additive log-ratio basis

Description

Compute the transformation matrix to express a composition using the oblique additive log-ratio coordinates.

Usage

alr_basis(dim, denominator = dim, numerator = which(denominator != 1:dim))

Arguments

dim

number of parts

denominator

part used as denominator (default behaviour is to use last part)

numerator

parts to be used as numerator. By default all except the denominator parts are chosen following original order.

Value

matrix

alr_basis(5)
# Third part is used as denominator
alr_basis(5, 3)
# Third part is used as denominator, and
# other parts are rearranged
alr_basis(5, 3, c(1,5,2,4))
