Robust Tucker3 estimator for compositional data

Compute a robust Tucker3 model for compositional data

Keywords
multivariate, robust
Usage
Tucker3(X, P = 2, Q = 2, R = 2, conv = 1e-06, 
    center = FALSE, scale = FALSE, scale.mode = c("B", "A", "C"), 
    robust = FALSE, ilr = FALSE, ncomp.rpca = 2, alpha = 0.75, 
    maxiter=100, crit=0.975, trace = FALSE)
Arguments
X

3-way array of data

P

Number of A-mode components

Q

Number of B-mode components

R

Number of C-mode components

conv

Convergence criterion, defaults to 1e-6

center

Whether to center the data

scale

Whether to scale the data

scale.mode

If centering and/or scaling the data, on which mode to do this

robust

Whether to apply a robust estimation

ilr

If the data are a composition, use an ilr transformation

ncomp.rpca

Number of components for robust PCA

alpha

Measures the fraction of outliers the algorithm should resist. Allowed values are between 0.5 and 1 and the default is 0.75

maxiter

Maximal number of iterations

crit

Cut-off for identifying outliers, default crit=0.975

trace

Logical, provide trace output

Details

The function can compute four versions of the Tucker3 model:

  1. Classical Tucker3,

  2. Tucker3 for compositional data,

  3. Robust Tucker3 and

  4. Robust Tucker3 for compositional data.

This is controlled through the parameters robust=TRUE and ilr=TRUE.

Value

An object of class "tucker3" which is basically a list with components:

fit

Fit value

fp

Fit percentage

A

Orthogonal loading matrix for the A-mode

B

Orthogonal loading matrix for the B-mode

Bclr

Orthogonal loading matrix for the B-mode, clr transformed. Available only if ilr=TRUE (default), otherwise NULL

C

Orthogonal loading matrix for the C-mode

GA

Core matrix, which describes the relation between A, B and C, unfolded in A-form. The largest squared elements of the core matrix indicate the most important factors in the model of X.

iter

Number of iterations

RD

Residual distances

flag

The observations whose residual distance RD is larger than cutoff.RD can be considered as outliers and receive a flag equal to zero. The regular observations receive a flag 1
