## t-Distributed Stochastic Neighborhood Embedding

### Description

An S4 Class for t-SNE.

### Details

t-SNE is a method that uses Kullback-Leibler divergence between the
distance matrices in high and low-dimensional space to embed the
data. The method is very well suited to visualize complex
structures in low dimensions.

### 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

t-SNE can take the following parameters:

- d
A distance function, defaults to euclidean distances

- perplexity
The perplexity parameter, roughly equivalent to neighborhood size.

- theta
Approximation for the nearest neighbour search, large values are more inaccurate.

- ndim
The number of embedding dimensions.

### Implementation

Wraps around `Rtsne`

, which is very well
documented. Setting `theta = 0`

does a normal t-SNE, larger
values for `theta < 1`

use the Barnes-Hut algorithm which
scales much nicer with data size. Larger values for perplexity take
larger neighborhoods into account.
