NMFfitX1-class: Structure for Storing the Best Fit Amongst Multiple NMF Runs

Description Details Slots Methods See Also Examples

Description

This class is used to return the result from a multiple run of a single NMF algorithm performed with function nmf with the – default – option keep.all=FALSE (cf. nmf).

Details

It extends both classes NMFfitX and NMFfit, and stores a the result of the best fit in its NMFfit structure.

Beside the best fit, this class allows to hold data about the computation of the multiple runs, such as the number of runs, the CPU time used to perform all the runs, as well as the consensus matrix.

Due to the inheritance from class NMFfit, objects of class NMFfitX1 can be handled exactly as the results of single NMF run – as if only the best run had been performed.

Slots

consensus

object of class matrix used to store the consensus matrix based on all the runs.

nrun

an integer that contains the number of runs performed to compute the object.

rng1

an object that contains RNG settings used for the first run. See getRNG1.

Methods

consensus

signature(object = "NMFfitX1"): The result is the matrix stored in slot ‘consensus’. This method returns NULL if the consensus matrix is empty.

fit

signature(object = "NMFfitX1"): Returns the model object associated with the best fit, amongst all the runs performed when fitting object.

Since NMFfitX1 objects only hold the best fit, this method simply returns the NMF model fitted by object – that is stored in slot ‘fit’.

getRNG1

signature(object = "NMFfitX1"): Returns the RNG settings used to compute the first of all NMF runs, amongst which object was selected as the best fit.

minfit

signature(object = "NMFfitX1"): Returns the fit object associated with the best fit, amongst all the runs performed when fitting object.

Since NMFfitX1 objects only hold the best fit, this method simply returns object coerced into an NMFfit object.

nmf.equal

signature(x = "NMFfitX1", y = "NMFfitX1"): Compares the NMF models fitted by multiple runs, that only kept the best fits.

nrun

signature(object = "NMFfitX1"): Returns the number of NMF runs performed, amongst which object was selected as the best fit.

show

signature(object = "NMFfitX1"): Show method for objects of class NMFfitX1
