tritrafo: Barycentric plots

Description

Function to carry out the transformation into 2D space for triplot, trilines etc.

Usage

tritrafo(x, y = NULL, z = NULL, check = TRUE, tolerance = 0.0001)

Arguments

x

Vector of fractions of first component OR 3-column matrix containing all three components (omitting y and z) OR 3-element vector (for all three components, omitting y and z).

y

(optional) vector of fractions of second component.

z

(optional) vector of fractions of third component.

check

if TRUE, it is checked whether x+y+z=1 and x,y,z>=0 for all cases.

tolerance

tolerance for above sum check.

Value

A matrix with two columns corresponding to the two dimensions.

Details

Projects the mixture given by x, y, and z with x, y, z between one and zero and x+y+z=1 into a two-dimensional space.

For further details see triplot.

# NOT RUN {
tritrafo(0.1, 0.2, 0.7)
tritrafo(0.1, 0.2, 0.6) # warning 

triplot()
points(tritrafo(0.1, 0.2, 0.7), col="red")

tritrafo(diag(3))

point <- c(0.25,0.6,0.15)
triplot(point, pch=16)
text(tritrafo(point), "(0.25, 0.60, 0.15)", adj=c(0.5,2)) # add a label
