If TRUE, the transformed values are also centered and
scaled, such that the transformation attempts a standard normal

...

Additional arguments that can be passed to the estimation of the
lambda parameter (lower, upper, epsilon)

object

an object of class 'boxcox'

newdata

a vector of data to be (reverse) transformed

inverse

if TRUE, performs reverse transformation

Value

A list of class boxcox with elements

x.t

transformed
original data

x

original data

mean

mean after transformation but prior to standardization

sd

sd after transformation but prior to standardization

lambda

estimated lambda value for skew transformation

n

number of nonmissing observations

norm_stat

Pearson's P / degrees of freedom

standardize

was the transformation standardized

The predict function returns the numeric value of the transformation
performed on new data, and allows for the inverse transformation as well.

Details

boxcox estimates the optimal value of lambda for the Box-Cox
transformation. This transformation can be performed on new data, and
inverted, via the predict function.

The function will return an error if a user attempt to transform nonpositive
data.
