pcaTransform

Purpose

Reduces the dimension of a matrix using principal component vectors previously returned by pcaFit().

Format

X_transform = pcaTransform(X, mdl)
Parameters:
  • X (NxP matrix) – The matrix to transform. This matrix must have the same number of columns as the matrix passed to pcaFit().
  • mdl (pcaModel structure) – This must have been previously been filled in by a call to pcaFit().
Returns:

X_transform (Nxn_components matrix) – The input matrix projected on the component vectors returned by a previous call to pcaFit().

Examples

new;
library gml;

// Get file name with full path
fname = getGAUSSHome() $+ "pkgs/gml/examples/winequality.csv";

// Load data
X = loadd(fname, ". -quality");

X_train = X[1:1000,.];
X_test = X[1001:rows(X),.];

n_components = 3;

struct pcaModel mdl;
mdl = pcaFit(X_train, n_components);

X_transform = pcaTransform(X_test, mdl);

After the above code, the first 5 rows of X_transform will be:
