## Weighted pivot coordinates

### Description

Weighted pivot coordinates as a special case of isometric logratio coordinates.

### Usage

``````weightedPivotCoord(
x,
pivotvar = 1,
option = "var",
method = "classical",
pow = 1,
yvar = NULL
)
``````

### Arguments

 `x` object of class 'data.frame' or 'matrix'; positive values only `pivotvar` pivotal variable; if any other number than 1, the data are resorted in that sense that pivotvar is shifted to the first part `option` option for the choice of weights. If 'option = "var"' (default), weights are based on variation matrix elements: '(1/t_1j)^pow', if 'option = "cor"', weights are based on correlations between variable specified in yvar and logratios and its distribution: '|integral_0^r_j f(x) dx|', 'f(x)...' Kernel density estimator for 's_j; s_j=0 if |r_j|0/#r_j, #r_j<0/#r_j', with Gaussian Kernel function and bandwidth 'h=0.05'. `method` method for estimation of variation/correlation, if 'option = "classical"' (default), classical estimation is applied, if 'option = "robust"', robust estimation is applied; `pow` if 'option = "var"', power 'pow' is applied on unnormalized weights; default is 1; `yvar` if 'option = "cor"', weights are based on correlation between logratios and variable specified in 'yvar';

### Details

Weighted pivot coordinates map D-part compositional data from the simplex into a (D-1)-dimensional real space isometrically. The relevant relative information about one of parts is contained in the first coordinate. Unlike in the (ordinary) pivot coordinates, the pairwise logratios aggregated into the first coordinate are weighted according to their relevance for the purpose of the analysis.

### Value

 `WPC` weighted pivot coordinates (matrix with n rows and (D-1) columns) `w` logcontrasts (matrix with D rows and (D-1) columns)
