The Hartigan-Wong version of the k-means algorithm uses two auxiliary algorithms: the optimal transfer stage (optra) and the quick transfer stage (qtran).

This function is the qtran subroutine adapted to the shape analysis context. It is used within `HartiganShapes`

. See Hartigan and Wong (1979) for details of the original k-means algorithm and Amaral et al. (2010) for details about its adaptation to shape analysis.

qtranShapes(array3D,n,c,ic1,ic2,nc,an1,an2,ncp,d,itran,indx)
``` |

`array3D` |
Array with the 3D landmarks of the sample objects. |

`n` |
Number of sample objects. |

`c` |
Array of centroids. |

`ic1` |
The cluster to each object belongs. |

`ic2` |
This vector is used to remember the cluster which each object is most likely to be transferred to at each step. |

`nc` |
Number of objects in each cluster. |

`an1` |
$an1(l) = nc(l) / (nc(l) - 1), l=1,...,numClust$, where numClust is the number of clusters. |

`an2` |
$an2(l) = nc(l) / (nc(l) + 1), l=1,...,numClust$. |

`ncp` |
In the optimal transfer stage, ncp(l) stores the step at which cluster l is last updated, $l=1,...,numClust$. |

`d` |
Vector of distances from each object to every centroid. |

`itran` |
itran(l) = 1 if cluster l is updated in the quick-transfer stage (0 otherwise), $l=1,...,k$. |

`indx` |
Number of steps since a transfer took place. |

A list with the following elements:: *c,ic1,ic2,nc,an1,an2,ncp,d,itran,indx,icoun*, updated after the optimal transfer stage. Note that *icoun* counts the steps where a re-allocation took place.

This function belongs to `HartiganShapes`

and it is not solely used. That is why there is no section of *examples* in this help page.

This function is based on the qtran.m file available from https://github.com/johannesgerer/jburkardt-m/tree/master/asa136.
