Hi,
I modified dlda{supclust} so that the original example in ?dlda gives
the following output:
> set.seed(342)
> xlearn <- matrix(rnorm(200), nrow = 20, ncol = 10)
>
> ## Generating random test data: 8 observations and 10 variables(clusters)
> xtest <- matrix(rnorm(80), nrow = 8, ncol = 10)
>
> ## Generating random class labels for the learning data
> ylearn <- as.numeric(runif(20)>0.5)
>
> ## Predicting the class labels for the test data
>
> t0 = dlda(xlearn, xtest, ylearn)
> t0
[,1] [,2]
[1,] 17.595758 21.20141
[2,] 11.882305 20.34470
[3,] 7.837422 12.47240
[4,] 11.025810 12.04523
[5,] 18.167740 15.91930
[6,] 11.396010 9.26949
[7,] 33.911010 26.06992
[8,] 16.140149 19.83915
(to be noticed: the above is anti-probabilities, which means the
smaller, the higher prob for being the label of colname, for example,
sample 5, the class label is predicted as 1 instead of 0)
Here I have one question about it:
since apply(t0, 1, sum) does not give the same sum, I am wondering if
standardization is a proper way to compare the probabilities "BETWEEN"
samples, following the understanding of dlda algorithm.
Thanks,
Weiwei
