 CorCompare R Documentation

## Compares Correlation Matrices

### Description

This function compares two correlation matrices numerically and graphically.

### Usage

``````CorCompare(cor1, cor2, labels1, labels2, method1, method2, ndigits = 4,
lty1 = 1, lty2 = 2, col1 = 1, col2 = 2, lwd1 = 1.1, lwd2 = 1.1,
cex.label = 1.1, cex.legend = 1.2, lwd.legend = 1.2, cex.cor = 1, ...)
``````

### Arguments

 `cor1,cor2` two correlation matrices based on different estimation methods `labels1, labels2` labels for the two estimation methods `method1, method2` description of the estimation methods `ndigits` number of digits to be used for plotting the numbers `lty1, lty2, col1,col2, lwd1, lwd2, cex.label, cex.cor` other graphics parameters `cex.legend, lwd.legend` graphical parameters for the legend `...` further graphical parameters for the ellipses

### Details

The ellipses are plotted with the function do.ellipses. Therefore the radius is calculated with singular value decomposition.

### Value

No return value, creates a plot.

### Examples

``````data(chorizon)
x=chorizon[,c("Ca","Cu","Mg","Na","P","Sr","Zn")]
op <- par(mfrow=c(1,1),mar=c(4,4,2,0))
R=robustbase::covMcd(log10(x),cor=TRUE)\$cor
P=cor(log10(x))

CorCompare(R,P,labels1=dimnames(x)[[2]],labels2=dimnames(x)[[2]],
method1="Robust",method2="Pearson",ndigits=2, cex.label=1.2)
par(op)
