Estimates Rényi's generalized dimensions (or Rényi's dimensions of qth order). It is mainly for q=2 that the result is used as an estimate of the intrinsic dimension of data.
1  RenDim(X, scaleQ=1:5, qMin=2, qMax=2)

X 
A N x E 
scaleQ 
A vector (at least two values). It contains the values of l^(1)
chosen by the user (by default: 
qMin 
The minimum value of q (by default: 
qMax 
The maximum value of q (by default: 
l is the edge length of the grid cells (or quadrats). Since the variables (and consenquently the grid) are rescaled to the [0,1] interval, l is equal to 1 for a grid consisting of only one cell.
l^(1) is the number of grid cells (or quadrats) along each axis of the Euclidean space in which the data points are embedded.
l^(1) is equal to Q^(1/E) where Q is the number of grid cells and E is the number of variables (or features).
l^(1) is directly related to delta (see References).
delta is the diagonal length of the grid cells.
A list of two elements:
a data.frame
containing the value of Rényi's information of qth order
(computed using the natural logarithm) for each value of ln(delta)
and q. The values of ln(delta) are provided with regard to the [0,1] interval.
a data.frame
containing the value of Dq for each value of q.
