Compute the multivariate spatial sign

Compute the spatial sign (a projection of a data vector to a unit length circle). The spatial sign of a vector w is w /norm(w).

Keywords

Usage
spatialSign.default(x)
spatialSign.matrix(x)
spatialSign.data.frame(x)
Arguments
x
an object full of numeric data (which should probably be scaled). Factors are not allowed. This could be a vector, matrix or data frame.
Value

  • A vector, matrix or data frame with the same dim names of the original data.

Aliases
  • spatialSign
  • spatialSign.default
  • spatialSign.matrix
  • spatialSign.data.frame
Examples
spatialSign(rnorm(5))

spatialSign(matrix(rnorm(12), ncol = 3))

# should fail since the fifth column is a factor
try(spatialSign(iris), silent = TRUE)

spatialSign(iris[,-5])

trellis.par.set(caretTheme())
featurePlot(iris[,-5], iris[,5], "pairs")
featurePlot(spatialSign(scale(iris[,-5])), iris[,5], "pairs")
