Description

Replication analysis for cluster validation of symbolic data

Usage

1
replication.SDA(table.Symbolic, u=2, method="SClust", S=10, fixedAsample=NULL, ...)

Arguments

table.Symbolic

symbolic data table

u

number of clusters given arbitrarily

method

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

S

the number of simulations used to compute average adjusted Rand index

fixedAsample

if NULL A sample is generated randomly, otherwise this parameter contains object numbers arbitrarily assigned to A sample

...

additional argument passed to dist_SDA function

Details

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

Value

A

3-dimensional array containing data matrices for A sample of objects in each simulation (first dimension represents simulation number, second - object number, third - variable number)

B

3-dimensional array containing data matrices for B sample of objects in each simulation (first dimension represents simulation number, second - object number, third - variable number)

medoids

3-dimensional array containing matrices of observations on u representative objects (medoids) for A sample of objects in each simulation (first dimension represents simulation number, second - cluster number, third - variable number)

clusteringA

2-dimensional array containing cluster numbers for A sample of objects in each simulation (first dimension represents simulation number, second - object number)

clusteringB

2-dimensional array containing cluster numbers for B sample of objects in each simulation (first dimension represents simulation number, second - object number)

clusteringBB

2-dimensional array containing cluster numbers for B sample of objects in each simulation according to 4 step of replication analysis procedure (first dimension represents simulation number, second - object number)

cRand

value of average adjusted Rand index for S simulations
