Inverse of the α-transformation
The inverse of the α-transformation.
A matrix with Euclidean data. However, they must lie within the feasible, acceptable space. See references for more information.
The value of the power transformation, it has to be between -1 and 1. If zero values are present it has to be greater than 0. If α=0, the inverse of the isometric log-ratio transformation is applied.
If h = TRUE this means that the multiplication with the Helmer sub-matrix will take place. It is set to TRUe by default.
The inverse of the α-transformation is applied to the data. If the data lie outside the α-space, NAs will be returned for some values.
A matrix with the pairwise distances.
