Modification of HINoV method for symbolic data

Description

Carmone, Kara \& Maxwell's Heuristic Identification of Noisy Variables (HINoV) method for symbolic data

Usage

HINoV.SDA(table.Symbolic, u=NULL, distance="H", Index="cRAND",method="pam",...)

Arguments

table.Symbolic

symbolic data table

u

number of clusters

distance

symbolic distance measure as parameter type in dist_SDA

method

clustering method: "single", "ward", "complete", "average", "mcquitty", "median", "centroid", "pam" (default), "SClust", "DClust"

Index

"cRAND" - adjusted Rand index (default); "RAND" - Rand index

...

additional argument passed to dist_SDA function

Details

For HINoV in symbolic data analysis there can be used methods based on distance matrix such as hierarchical ("single", "ward", "complete", "average", "mcquitty", "median", "centroid") and optimization methods ("pam", "DClust") and also methods based on symbolic data table ("SClust").

See file ../doc/HINoVSDA_details.pdf for further details

Value

parim

m x m symmetric matrix (m - number of variables). Matrix contains pairwise adjusted Rand (or Rand) indices for partitions formed by the j-th variable with partitions formed by the l-th variable

topri

sum of rows of parim

stopri

ranked values of topri in decreasing order
