## Non-Negative Matrix Factorization

### Description

S4 Class implementing NNMF.

### Details

NNMF is a method for decomposing a matrix into a smaller
dimension such that the constraint that the data (and the
projection) are not negative is taken into account.

### Slots

`fun`

A function that does the embedding and returns a
dimRedResult object.

`stdpars`

The standard parameters for the function.

### General usage

Dimensionality reduction methods are S4 Classes that either be used
directly, in which case they have to be initialized and a full
list with parameters has to be handed to the `@fun()`

slot, or the method name be passed to the embed function and
parameters can be given to the `...`

, in which case
missing parameters will be replaced by the ones in the
`@stdpars`

.

### Parameters

The method can take the following parameters:

- ndim
The number of output dimensions.

- method
character, which algorithm should be used. See
`nmf`

for possible values. Defaults to
"brunet"

- nrun
integer, the number of times the computations are
conducted. See `nmf`

- seed
integer, a value to control the random numbers used.

- options
named list, other options to pass to `nmf`

### Implementation

Wraps around `nmf`

. Note that the estimation uses random
numbers. To create reproducible results, set the random number seed in the
function call. Also, in many cases, the computations will be conducted
in parallel using multiple cores. To disable this, use the option
`.pbackend = NULL`

.

if(requireNamespace(c("NNMF", "MASS"), quietly = TRUE)) {
set.seed(4646)
dat <- loadDataSet("Iris")
emb <- embed(dat, "NNMF")
plot(emb)
# project new values:
nn_proj <- predict(emb, dat[1:7])
