Arguments

x

y

compositions of class acomp

Details

The perturbation is the basic addition operation of the Aitichson simplex as a vector space. It is defined by:

(x+y)_i = clo( (x_i y_i)_i )_i

perturbe and + compute this operation. The only difference is that + checks the class of its argument, while perturbe does not check the type of the arguments and can thus directly be applied to a composition in any form (unclassed, acomp, rcomp).
The - operation is the inverse of the addition in the usual way and defined by:

(x-y)_i:=clo( (x_i/y_i)_i )_i

and as unary operation respectively as:

(-x)_i:=clo( (1/y_i)_i )_i

Value

An acomp vector or matrix.
