## Partial Triadic Analysis of a K-tables

### Description

performs a partial triadic analysis of a K-tables, using an object of class `ktab`.

### Usage

```pta(X, scannf = TRUE, nf = 2)
## S3 method for class 'pta'
plot(x, xax = 1, yax = 2, option = 1:4, ...)
## S3 method for class 'pta'
print(x, ...)
```

### Arguments

 `X` an object of class `ktab` where the arrays have 1) the same dimensions 2) the same names for columns 3) the same column weightings `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 `x` an object of class 'pta' `xax, yax` the numbers of the x-axis and the y-axis `option` an integer between 1 and 4, otherwise the 4 components of the plot are displayed `...` further arguments passed to or from other methods

### Value

returns a list of class 'pta', sub-class of 'dudi' containing :

 `RV` a matrix with the all RV coefficients `RV.eig` a numeric vector with the all eigenvalues (interstructure) `RV.coo` a data frame with the scores of the arrays `tab.names` a vector of characters with the array names `nf` an integer indicating the number of kept axes `rank` an integer indicating the rank of the studied matrix `tabw` a numeric vector with the array weights `cw` a numeric vector with the column weights `lw` a numeric vector with the row weights `eig` a numeric vector with the all eigenvalues (compromis) `cos2` a numeric vector with the cos² between compromise and arrays `tab` a data frame with the modified array `li` a data frame with the row coordinates `l1` a data frame with the row normed scores `co` a data frame with the column coordinates `c1` a data frame with the column normed scores `Tli` a data frame with the row coordinates (each table) `Tco` a data frame with the column coordinates (each table) `Tcomp` a data frame with the principal components (each table) `Tax` a data frame with the principal axes (each table) `TL` a data frame with the factors for Tli `TC` a data frame with the factors for Tco `T4` a data frame with the factors for Tax and Tcomp

### Examples

```data(meaudret)
wit1 <- withinpca(meaudret\$env, meaudret\$design\$season, scan = FALSE, scal = "partial")
kta1 <- ktab.within(wit1, colnames = rep(c("S1", "S2", "S3", "S4", "S5"), 4))
kta2 <- t(kta1)
pta1 <- pta(kta2, scann = FALSE)
pta1
plot(pta1)
