Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

Used for finding principal components of a numeric matrix. Missing values in the matrix are allowed. Principal Components are extracted one a time. The algorithm computes x = TP', where T is the 'scores' matrix and P is the 'loadings' matrix.

`x` |
Numerical matrix for which to find principal compontents. Missing values are allowed. |

`ncomp` |
Maximum number of principal components to extract from x. |

`center` |
If TRUE, subtract the mean from each column of x. |

`scale` |
if TRUE, divide the standard deviation from each column of x. |

`maxiter` |
Maximum number of NIPALS iterations for each principal component. |

`tol` |
Default 1e-9 tolerance for testing convergence of the NIPALS iterations for each principal component. |

`startcol` |
If 0, start the iterations for each principal component with the column of x that has maximum variation. Otherwise, start with the spcified column number. |

`fitted` |
Default FALSE. If TRUE, return the fitted (reconstructed) value of x. |

`force.na` |
Default FALSE. If TRUE, force the function to use the method for missing values, even if there are no missing values in x. |

`gramschmidt` |
Default TRUE. If TRUE, perform Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization at each iteration. |

`verbose` |
Default FALSE. Use TRUE or 1 to show some diagnostics. |
