Title: Orthogonal Data Projections with Maximal Skewness

Version: 1.1

Date: 2017-05-02

Author: Cinzia Franceschini, Nicola Loperfido

Maintainer: Cinzia Franceschini <[email protected]>

Description: It finds Orthogonal Data Projections with Maximal Skewness. The first data projection in the output is the most skewed among all linear data projections. The second data projection in the output is the most skewed among all data projections orthogonal to the first one, and so on.

## Example 1. Run MaxSkew on the iris data 
data(iris)
iris<-data.matrix(iris) #returns the matrix obtained by converting the data frame to numeric mode
MaxSkew(iris[,1:3],5,2,FALSE) # matrix whose columns are the two projections with maximal skewness
MaxSkew(iris[,1:2],5,1,FALSE) #projection with maximal skewness of the first two variables
#MaxSkewBiv(iris[,1],iris[,2]) #obtains the same of MaxSkew(iris[,1:2],5,1)

## Example 2. Run MaxSkew on the OLYMPIC_DECATHLON_2016 data 
data(OLYMPIC_DECATHLON_2016)
OLYMPIC_DECATHLON_2016_matrix<-data.matrix(OLYMPIC_DECATHLON_2016) #returns a data matrix
MaxSkew(OLYMPIC_DECATHLON_2016_matrix[,4:13],10,2,TRUE) #it returns also the scatterplot
MaxSkew(OLYMPIC_DECATHLON_2016_matrix[,4:13],10,2,FALSE)#as in example 1

OLYMPIC_DECATHLON_2016_projections<-MaxSkew(OLYMPIC_DECATHLON_2016_matrix[,4:13],10,2,FALSE)
plot(OLYMPIC_DECATHLON_2016_projections) #scatterplot of the first two projections
##install.packages("calibrate")
##library(calibrate)
##textxy(OLYMPIC_DECATHLON_2016_projections[,1],OLYMPIC_DECATHLON_2016_projections[,2],
##OLYMPIC_DECATHLON_2016$ATHLETE,offset=0.5)
