pcoscaled {ade4} | R Documentation |
performs a simplified analysis in principal coordinates,
using an object of class dist
.
pcoscaled(distmat, tol = 1e-07)
distmat |
an object of class |
tol |
a tolerance threshold, an eigenvalue is considered as positive if it is larger than |
returns a data frame containing the Euclidean representation of the distance matrix with a total inertia equal to 1
