Median polish multidimensional.

Description

Fits an additive model for multidimensional array, using Tukey's median polish procedure.

Usage

1
2
## S3 method for class 'ConstructMPst'
MedianPolishM(data, eps, maxiter, na.rm, ...)

Arguments

data

class ConstructMPst.

eps

real number greater than 0, default 0.01. A tolerance for convergence: see Details

maxiter

the maximum number of iterations. Default 10.

na.rm

logical. If the data contains NA's. Default TRUE.

...

ignored.

Details

The model fitted is additive μ +α _{a} + β _{b} + ξ _{c} + τ _{t}, where μ is an overall mean, α_{a} is the a-th row effect, β_{b} is the effect b-th column effect, ξ_{c} is the c-th layer effect, τ _{t} is the t-th time effect. The algorithm works by alternately removing medians of every spatio - temporal dimensions, and continues until the proportional reduction in the sum of absolute residuals is less than eps or until there have been maxiter iterations. If na.rm is FALSE the presence of any NA value in x will cause an error, otherwise NA values are ignored. MedianPolishM returns an object of class MedianPolishM (see below). There is a plotting method for this class, plot.MedianPolishM.

Value

An object of class medpolish with the following named components in a list:

residuals

the residuals.

overall

the fitted constant term.

effects

the fitted every space - time effects.

iter

number of iterations used in the range maxiter.
