##### Canonical Correlations

Compute the canonical correlations between two data matrices.

Keywords
multivariate
##### Usage
cancor(x, y, xcenter = TRUE, ycenter = TRUE)
##### Arguments
x
numeric matrix ($n * p1$), containing the x coordinates.
y
numeric matrix ($n * p2$), containing the y coordinates.
xcenter
logical or numeric vector of length $p1$, describing any centering to be done on the x values before the analysis. If TRUE (default), subtract the column means. If FALSE, do not adjust the columns. Otherwise, a vector of values to be subtracted from the columns.
ycenter
analogous to xcenter, but for the y values.
##### Details

The canonical correlation analysis seeks linear combinations of the y variables which are well explained by linear combinations of the x variables. The relationship is symmetric as ‘well explained’ is measured by correlations.

##### Value

A list containing the following components:
cor
correlations.
xcoef
estimated coefficients for the x variables.
ycoef
estimated coefficients for the y variables.
xcenter
the values used to adjust the x variables.
ycenter
the values used to adjust the x variables.
