Computes univariate ILR coordinates.

Usage

univariate_ilr(object, ...)

# S4 method for numeric
univariate_ilr(object)

# S4 method for matrix
univariate_ilr(object)

Arguments

object

A CompositionMatrix object.

...

Currently not used.

Value

Same as object.

Details

The ILR transformation provides the coordinates of any composition with respect to a given orthonormal basis. transform_ilr() uses the orthonormal basis (Helmert matrix) originally defined by Egozcue et al. (2003).

Examples

## Data from Aitchison 1986
data("hongite")

## Coerce to compositional data
coda <- as_composition(hongite)

## Isometric log-ratio
ilr <- transform_ilr(coda)
plr <- transform_plr(coda)

## Inverse transformation
inv_ilr <- transform_inverse(ilr)
all.equal(coda, inv_ilr)
#> [1] TRUE

inv_plr <- transform_inverse(plr)
all.equal(coda, inv_plr)
#> [1] TRUE
