rlq: RLQ analysis

rlqR Documentation

RLQ analysis

Description

RLQ analysis performs a double inertia analysis of two arrays (R and Q) with a link expressed by a contingency table (L). The rows of L correspond to the rows of R and the columns of L correspond to the rows of Q.

Usage

rlq(dudiR, dudiL, dudiQ, scannf = TRUE, nf = 2)
## S3 method for class 'rlq'
print(x, ...)
## S3 method for class 'rlq'
plot(x, xax = 1, yax = 2, ...)
## S3 method for class 'rlq'
summary(object, ...)
## S3 method for class 'rlq'
randtest(xtest,nrepet = 999, modeltype = 6,...)

Arguments

dudiR

a duality diagram providing from one of the functions dudi.hillsmith, dudi.pca, ...

dudiL

a duality diagram of the function dudi.coa

dudiQ

a duality diagram providing from one of the functions dudi.hillsmith, dudi.pca, ...

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 rlq object

xax

the column number for the x-axis

yax

the column number for the y-axis

object

an rlq object

xtest

an rlq object

nrepet

the number of permutations

modeltype

the model used to permute data(2: permute rows of R, 4: permute rows of Q, 5: permute both, 6: sequential approach, see ter Braak et al. 2012)

...

further arguments passed to or from other methods

Value

Returns a list of class 'dudi', sub-class 'rlq' containing:

call

call

rank

rank

nf

a numeric value indicating the number of kept axes

RV

a numeric value, the RV coefficient

eig

a numeric vector with all the eigenvalues

lw

a numeric vector with the rows weigths (crossed array)

cw

a numeric vector with the columns weigths (crossed array)

tab

a crossed array (CA)

li

R col = CA row: coordinates

l1

R col = CA row: normed scores

co

Q col = CA column: coordinates

c1

Q col = CA column: normed scores

lR

the row coordinates (R)

mR

the normed row scores (R)

lQ

the row coordinates (Q)

mQ

the normed row scores (Q)

aR

the axis onto co-inertia axis (R)

aQ

the axis onto co-inertia axis (Q)

WARNING

IMPORTANT : row weights for dudiR and dudiQ must be taken from dudiL.

Note

A testing procedure based on the total coinertia of the RLQ analysis is available by the function randtest.rlq. The function allows to deal with various analyses for tables R and Q. Means and variances are recomputed for each permutation (PCA); for MCA, tables are recentred and column weights are recomputed.The case of decentred PCA (PCA where centers are entered by the user) for R or Q is not yet implemented. If you want to use the testing procedure for this case, you must firstly center the table and then perform a non-centered PCA on the modified table.
