Description Usage Arguments Details Value Note See Also Examples

Geometric and harmonic mean along a dimension of a vector, matrix, or
array.

`trimmean`

is almost the same as `mean`

in R.

1 2 3 4 |

`x` |
numeric vector, matrix, or array. |

`dim` |
dimension along which to take the mean; |

`percent` |
percentage, between 0 and 100, of trimmed values. |

`trimmean`

does not call `mean`

with the `trim`

option, but
rather calculates `k<-round(n*percent/100/2)`

and leaves out `k`

values at the beginning and end of the sorted `x`

vector (or row or
column of a matrix).

Returns a scalar or vector (or array) of geometric or harmonic means:
For `dim=1`

the mean of columns, `dim=2`

the mean of rows, etc.

To have an exact analogue of `mean(x)`

in Matlab,
apply `trimmean(x)`

.
