Description

Produces a biplot from an object (derived from) Pca-class.

Usage

    ## S4 method for signature 'Pca'
biplot(x, choices=1L:2L, scale=1, ...)

Arguments

x

an object of class (derived from) "Pca".

choices

length 2 vector specifying the components to plot. Only the default is a biplot in the strict sense.

scale

The variables are scaled by lambda ^ scale and the observations are scaled by lambda ^ (1-scale) where lambda are the singular values as computed by the Principal Components function. Normally 0 <= scale <= 1, and a warning will be issued if the specified scale is outside this range.

...

optional arguments to be passed to the internal graphical functions.

Side Effects

a plot is produced on the current graphics device.

Methods

biplot

signature(x = Pca): Plot a biplot, i.e. represent both the observations and variables of a matrix of multivariate data on the same plot. See also biplot.princomp.
