View source: R/FClust.R

Description

Default: Cluster functional data using the functional principal component (FPC) scores obtained from the data FPC analysis using EMCluster (Chen and Maitra, 2015) or directly clustering the functional data using kCFC (Chiou and Li, 2007).

Usage

1
FClust(Ly, Lt, k = 3, cmethod = "EMCluster", optnsFPCA = NULL, optnsCS = NULL)

Arguments

Ly

A list of n vectors containing the observed values for each individual. Missing values specified by NAs are supported for dense case (dataType='dense').

Lt

A list of n vectors containing the observation time points for each individual corresponding to y.

k

A scalar defining the number of clusters to define; default 3.

cmethod

A string specifying the clustering method to use ('EMCluster' or 'kCFC'); default: 'EMCluster'.

optnsFPCA

A list of options control parameters specified by list(name=value) to be used for by FPCA on the sample y; by default: "list( methodMuCovEst ='smooth', FVEthreshold= 0.90, methodBwCov = 'GCV', methodBwMu = 'GCV' )". See ‘Details in ?FPCA’.

optnsCS

A list of options control parameters specified by list(name=value) to be used for cluster-specific FPCA from kCFC; by default: "list( methodMuCovEst ='smooth', FVEthreshold= 0.70, methodBwCov = 'GCV', methodBwMu = 'GCV' )". See ‘Details in ?FPCA’ and '?kCFC'.

Details

Within EMCluster, uses the model initiated EMCluster::em.EM and returns the optimal model based on EMCluster::emcluster. See ?EMCluster::emcluster for details.

Value

A list containing the following fields:

cluster

A vector of levels 1:k, indicating the cluster to which each curve is allocated.

fpca

An FPCA object derived from the sample used by Rmixmod, otherwise NULL.

clusterObj

Either a EMCluster object or kCFC object.
