The three-way data consists of a set of variables measured on several groups of individuals. To each group is associated an estimated probability density function. The package provides functional methods (principal component analysis, multidimensional scaling, cluster analysis, discriminant analysis...) for such probability densities.
The main functions applying to the probability densities are:
fpcad: functional principal component analysis,
fpcat: functional principal component analysis applied to data indexed according to time,
fmdsd: multidimensional scaling,
fhclustd: hierarchical clustering,
fdiscd.misclass: functional discriminant analysis in order to compute the misclassification ratio with the one-leave-out method,
fdiscd.predict: discriminant analysis in order to predict the class (synonymous with cluster, not to be confused with the class attribute of an R object) of each probability density whose class is unknown,
mdsdd: multidimensional scaling of discrete probability distributions,
discdd.misclass: functional discriminant analysis of discrete probability distributions, in order to compute the misclassification ratio with the one-leave-out method,
discdd.predict: discriminant analysis of discrete probability distributions, in order to predict the class of each probability distribution whose class is unknown,
The above functions are completed by:
print() method for objects of class
mdsdd, in order to display the results of the corresponding function,
plot() method for objects of class
mdsdd, in order to display some useful graphics attached to the corresponding function,
A generic function
interpret that applies to objects of class
mdsdd, helps the user to interpret the scores returned by the corresponding function, in terms of moments (
fmdsd) or in terms of marginal probability distributions (
We also introduce classes of objects and tools in order to handle collections of data frames:
folder creates an object of class
folder, that is a list of data frames which have in common the same columns.
The following functions apply to a folder and compute some statistics on the columns of its elements:
folderh creates an object of class
folderh, that is a list of data frames with a hierarchic relation between each pair of consecutive data frames.
foldert creates an object of class
foldert, that is a list of data frames indexed according to time, concerning the same individuals and variables or not.
read.mtg creates an object of class
foldermtg from an MTG (Multiscale Tree Graph) file containing plant architecture data.
