## Arithmetic operations for compositions in a real geometry

### Description

The real compositions form a manifold of the real vector space. The induced operations +,-,*,/ give results valued in the real vector space, but possibly outside the simplex.

### Usage

convex.rcomp(x,y,alpha=0.5)
## Methods for class "rcomp"
##   x+y
##   x-y
##   -x
##   x*r
##   r*x
##   x/r


### Arguments

 x an rcomp composition or dataset of compositions y an rcomp composition or dataset of compositions r a numeric vector of size 1 or nrow(x) alpha a numeric vector of size 1 or nrow(x) with values between 0 and 1

### Details

The functions behave quite like +.rmult.
The convex combination is defined as: x*alpha + (1-alpha)*y

### Value

rmult-objects containing the given operations on the simplex as subset of the R^D. Only the convex combination convex.rcomp results in an rcomp-object again, since only this operation is closed.

### Note

For * the arguments x and y can be exchanged.
