proj2.efficiency {dae}R Documentation

Computes the canonical efficiency factors for the joint decomposition of two projectors

Description

Computes the canonical efficiency factors for the joint decomposition of two projectors (James and Wilkinson, 1971).

Usage

proj2.efficiency(Q1, Q2)

Arguments

Q1

An object of class "projector".

Q2

An object of class "projector".

Details

The nonzero canonical efficiency factors are the nonzero eigenvalues of Q1 %*% Q2 %*% Q1 (James and Wilkinson, 1971). An eigenvalue is regarded as zero if it is less than daeTolerance, which is initially set to .Machine$double.eps ^ 0.5 (about 1.5E-08). The function set.daeTolerance can be used to change daeTolerance.

Value

A vector containing the nonzero canonical efficiency factors.

## obtain sets of projectors
unit.struct <- pstructure(~ Block/Unit, data = PBIBD2.lay)

## save intrablock efficiencies
