dudi.pco(d, row.w = "uniform", scannf = TRUE, nf = 2, 
    full = FALSE, tol = 1e-07)
## S3 method for class 'pco'
scatter(x, xax = 1, yax = 2, clab.row = 1, posieig = "top", 
    sub = NULL, csub = 2, ...) 

Arguments

d

an object of class dist containing a Euclidean distance matrix.

row.w

an optional distance matrix row weights. If not NULL, must be a vector of positive numbers with length equal to the size of the distance matrix

scannf

a logical value indicating whether the eigenvalues bar plot should be displayed

nf

if scannf FALSE, an integer indicating the number of kept axes

full

a logical value indicating whether all the axes should be kept

tol

a tolerance threshold to test whether the distance matrix is Euclidean : an eigenvalue is considered positive if it is larger than -tol*lambda1 where lambda1 is the largest eigenvalue.



x

an object of class pco

xax

the column number for the x-axis

yax

the column number for the y-axis

clab.row

a character size for the row labels

posieig

if "top" the eigenvalues bar plot is upside, if "bottom" it is downside, if "none" no plot

sub

a string of characters to be inserted as legend

csub

a character size for the legend, used with par("cex")*csub

...

further arguments passed to or from other methods

Value

dudi.pco returns a list of class pco and dudi. See dudi
