Details

MultiCHull function

MultiCHull applies the CHull code on multiple samples of fit values. To this end, the input parameter data consists of a dataframe with complexity values in the first column and fit values in the next columns. The different samples can for example be bootstrap samples, or fit values obtained with different random starts, or from different fit measures, etc. It is possible that in some samples no optimal solution can be found. This will generate a warning, which will include the sample number.

Data frame st contains per sample the scree test values of the solutions that were found on the upper or lower bound of the hull (see also CHull). In each sample, the least and most complex model receive a 0 value. The other models have an NA value. tab is also a dataframe, which indicates per sample the top three of optimal models (indicated by a 1, 2 and 3). The other models have an NA value. Finally, in frq the frequencies are shown for each model of being selected as the optimal model.

Plot function

Applying the method plot() on output of MultiCHull yields a plot with the models on the x-axis, ordered by increasing complexity. By default, all model names are shown as perpendicular labels on the x-axis, but one can choose to display specific model names only (e.g., whichticks=c("model13","model20")). The tick mark labels can be made horizontal, by putting parameter las to 0.

Solid lines (only shown in case of 20 or less samples) indicate the scree test values per sample, and symbols indicate the top three of the models per sample. The symbols can be adjusted with the parameter pch and the colors with col. The model (or multiple models) that is selected most often across samples, is indicated with a horizontal line.
