Several internal functions to compute and represent archetypes and archetypoids


This file contains six extra functions. The ahull function is a helper function to calculate the approximated convex hull. The no.scalefn and no.rescalefn functions allow us to use the archetype algorithm without standardizing the data (see stepArchetypesRawData). The other three functions are called by the archetypoid algorithm (archetypoids). All these functions are therefore not solely used.
