Cross validation for estimating the classification rate of a discrminant analysis for directional data assuming an ESAG distribution.

1 |

`y` |
A matrix with the data in Eulcidean coordinates, i.e. unit vectors. The matrix must have three columns, only spherical data are currently supported. |

`ina` |
A variable indicating the groupings. |

`fraction` |
The fraction of data to be used as test set. |

`R` |
The number of repetitions. |

`seed` |
If seed is TRUE, the results will always be the same. |

A repeated cross validation procedure is performed to estimate the rate of correct classification.

A list including:

`percent` |
The estimated percent of correct classification and two estimated standard deviations. The one is the standard devation of the rates and the other is assuming a binomial distribution. |

`ci` |
Three types of confidence intervals, the standard one, another one based on the binomial distribution and the third one is the empirical one, which calcualtes the upper and lower 2.5% of the rates. |
