Construct the Indscal model for Napping data type

Share:

Description

This version of the Indscal model is specially adapted to Napping data type, i.e. products (stimuli) are positioned on a tableclothe by panelists, then their coordinates are used as input for the Indscal model.

Usage

1
2
indscal(matrice, matrice.illu = NULL, maxit = 200, coord = c(1,2), 
    eps = 1/10^5)

Arguments

matrice

a data frame of dimension (p,2j), where p represents the number of products and j the number of panelists (two coordinates per panelist)

matrice.illu

a data frame with illustrative variables (with the same row.names in common as in matrice)

maxit

the maximum number of iterations until the algorithm stops

coord

a length 2 vector specifying the components to plot

eps

a threshold with respect to which the algorithm stops, i.e. when the difference between the criterion function at step n and n+1 is less than eps

Value

Returns a list including:

W

a matrix with the subject coordinates

points

a matrix with the stimuli (individuals) coordinates

subvar

a vector with the strain between each configuration and the stimuli configuration

r2

the strain criterion

The functions returns the three following graphs:
A stimuli representation, ie. a representation of the products
A representation of the weights computed by the Indscal model.
A correlation circle of the variables enhanced by illustrative variables (supplementary columns)
