# ppa.iterate: The Ping-Pong Algorithm In isa2: The Iterative Signature Algorithm

## Description

Perform PPA on two (normalized) input matrices.

## Usage

 ```1 2``` ```## S4 method for signature 'list' ppa.iterate(normed.data, ...) ```

## Arguments

 `normed.data` The normalized input matrices. A list of four matrices, usually coming from the `ppa.normalize` function. `...` Additional arguments, see details below.

## Details

`ppa.iterate` performs the PPA iteration on the specified input matrices using given input seeds. It can be called as

 ```1 2 3 4 5 6 7``` ``` ppa.iterate(normed.data, row1.seeds, col1.seeds, row2.seeds, col2.seeds, thr.row1, thr.col=thr.row1, thr.row2=thr.row1, direction="updown", convegence=c("cor"), cor.limit=0.9, oscillation=FALSE, maxiter=100) ```

where the arguments are:

normed.data

The normalized data, a list of four matrices with the appropriate size. They are usually coming from the output of the `ppa.normalize` function.

row1.seeds

The row seed vectors for the first matrix. At least one of the four possible seed vectors must be present and they will be concatenated, after doing the suitable half-iterations.

col1.seeds

The column seed vectors for the first matrix. At least one of the four possible seed vectors must be present and they will be concatenated, after doing the suitable half-iterations.

row2.seeds

The row seed vectors for the second matrix. At least one of the four possible seed vectors must be present and they will be concatenated, after doing the suitable half-iterations.

col2.seeds

The column seed vectors for the second matrix. At least one of the four possible seed vectors must be present and they will be concatenated, after doing the suitable half-iterations.

thr.row1

Numeric scalar or vector giving the threshold parameter for the rows of the first matrix. Higher values indicate a more stringent threshold and the result comodules will contain less rows for the first matrix on average. The threshold is measured by the number of standard deviations from the mean, over the values of the first row vector. If it is a vector then it must contain an entry for each seed.

thr.col

Numeric scalar or vector giving the threshold parameter for the columns of both matrices. The analogue of `thr.row1`.

thr.row2

Numeric scalar or vector, the threshold parameter(s) for the rows of the second matrix. See `thr.row1` for details.

direction

Character vector of length four, one for each matrix multiplication performed during a PPA iteration. It specifies whether we are interested in rows/columns that are higher (‘`up`’) than average, lower than average (‘`down`’), or both (‘`updown`’). The first and the second entry both corresponds to the common column dimension of the two matrices, so they should be equal, otherwise a warning is given.

convergence

Character scalar, the convergence criteria for the PPA iteration. If it is ‘`cor`’, then convergence is measured based on high Pearson correlation (see the `cor.limit` argument below) of the subsequent row and column vectors. Currently this is the only option implemented.

cor.limit

The correlation limit for convergence if the ‘`cor`’ method is used.

oscillation

Logical scalar, whether to look for oscillating seeds. Usually there are not too many oscillating seeds, so it is safe to leave this on `FALSE`.

maxiter

The maximum number of iterations allowed.

## Value

A named list with many components. Please see the manual page of `link{isa}` for a complete description.
