Accessing NMF Factors

basis and basis<- are S4 generic functions which respectively extract and set the matrix of basis components of an NMF model (i.e. the first matrix factor).

The methods .basis, .coef and their replacement versions are implemented as pure virtual methods for the interface class NMF, meaning that concrete NMF models must provide a definition for their corresponding class (i.e. sub-classes of class NMF). See NMF for more details.

coef and coef<- respectively extract and set the coefficient matrix of an NMF model (i.e. the second matrix factor). For example, in the case of the standard NMF model $V \equiv WH$, the method coef will return the matrix $H$.

.coef and .coef<- are low-level S4 generics that simply return/set coefficient data in an object, leaving some common processing to be performed in coef and coef<-.

Methods coefficients and coefficients<- are simple aliases for methods coef and coef<- respectively.

scoef is similar to coef, but returns the mixture coefficient matrix of an NMF model, with the columns scaled so that they sum up to a given value (1 by default).

Usage
basis(object, ...)

## S3 method for class 'NMF': basis(object, all = TRUE, ...)

.basis(object, ...)

basis(object) <- value

.basis(object) <- value

## S3 method for class 'NMF': loadings(x)

coef(object, ...)

## S3 method for class 'NMF': coef(object, all = TRUE, ...)

.coef(object, ...)

coef(object) <- value

.coef(object) <- value

coefficients(object, ...)

## S3 method for class 'NMF': coefficients(object, all = TRUE, ...)

scoef(object, ...)

## S3 method for class 'NMF': scoef(object, scale = 1)

## S3 method for class 'matrix': scoef(object, scale = 1)

Arguments
object
an object from which to extract the factor matrices, typically an object of class NMF.
...
extra arguments to allow extension and passed to the low-level access functions .coef and .basis.
all
a logical that indicates whether the complete matrix factor should be returned (TRUE) or only the non-fixed part. This is relevant only for formula-based NMF models that include fixed basis or coefficient terms.
value
replacement value
scale
scaling factor, which indicates to the value the columns of the coefficient matrix should sum up to.
x
an object of class "factanal" or "princomp" or the loadings component of such an object.
Details

For example, in the case of the standard NMF model $V \equiv W H$, the method basis will return the matrix $W$.

basis and basis<- are defined for the top virtual class NMF only, and rely internally on the low-level S4 generics .basis and .basis<- respectively that effectively extract/set the coefficient data. These data are post/pre-processed, e.g., to extract/set only their non-fixed terms or check dimension compatibility.

coef and coef<- are S4 methods defined for the corresponding generic functions from package stats (See coef). Similarly to basis and basis<-, they are defined for the top virtual class NMF only, and rely internally on the S4 generics .coef and .coef<- respectively that effectively extract/set the coefficient data. These data are post/pre-processed, e.g., to extract/set only their non-fixed terms or check dimension compatibility.
