aplusarithm {compositions} R Documentation

## vectorial arithmetic for data sets with aplus class

### Description

The positive vectors equipped with the perturbation (defined as the element-wise product) as Abelian sum, and powertransform (defined as the element-wise powering with a scalar) as scalar multiplication forms a real vector space. These vector space operations are defined here in a similar way to +.rmult.

### Usage

perturbe.aplus(x,y)
## S3 method for class 'aplus'
x + y
## S3 method for class 'aplus'
x - y
## S3 method for class 'aplus'
x * y
## S3 method for class 'aplus'
x / y
##  Methods for aplus
##   x+y
##   x-y
##   -x
##   x*r
##   r*x
##   x/r
power.aplus(x,r)


### Arguments

 x an aplus vector or dataset of vectors y an aplus vector or dataset of vectors r a numeric vector of size 1 or nrow(x)

### Details

The operators try to mimic the parallel operation of R for vectors of real numbers to vectors of amounts, represented as matrices containing the vectors as rows and works like the operators for {rmult}

### Value

an object of class "aplus" containing the result of the corresponding operation on the vectors.
