Given a numeric matrix which may or may not contain NAs,
pc1 standardizes the columns to have mean 0 and variance 1 and
computes the first principal component using prcomp. The
proportion of variance explained by this component is printed, and so
are the coefficients of the original (not scaled) variables. These
coefficients may be applied to the raw data to obtain the first PC.

Usage

pc1(x, hi)

Value

The vector of observations with the first PC. An attribute

"coef" is attached to this vector. "coef" contains the
raw-variable coefficients.

Arguments

x

numeric matrix

hi

if specified, the first PC is scaled so that its maximum
value is hi and its minimum value is zero
