princomp(x, ...) ## S3 method for class 'formula': princomp((formula, data = NULL, subset, na.action, ...)) ## S3 method for class 'default': princomp((x, cor = FALSE, scores = TRUE, covmat = NULL, subset = rep(TRUE, nrow(as.matrix(x))), ...)) ## S3 method for class 'princomp': predict((object, newdata, ...))
- a formula with no response variable, referring only to numeric variables.
- an optional data frame (or similar: see
model.frame) containing the variables in the formula
formula. By default the variables are taken from
- an optional vector used to select rows (observations) of the data matrix
- a function which indicates what should happen when the data contain
NAs. The default is set by the
options, and is
na.failif that is unset. The ‘factory-fresh’ default is
- a numeric matrix or data frame which provides the data for the principal components analysis.
- a logical value indicating whether the calculation should use the correlation matrix or the covariance matrix. (The correlation matrix can only be used if there are no constant variables.)
- a logical value indicating whether the score on each principal component should be calculated.
- a covariance matrix, or a covariance list as returned by
cov.mcdfrom package MASS). If supplied, this is used rather than the covariance matrix of
- arguments passed to or from other methods. If
xis a formula one might specify
- Object of class inheriting from
- An optional data frame or matrix in which to look for variables with which to predict. If omitted, the scores are used. If the original fit used a formula or a data frame or a matrix with column names,
newdatamust contain columns with the same names. Otherwise it must contain the same number of columns, to be used in the same order.
princomp is a generic function with
The calculation is done using
eigen on the correlation or covariance matrix, as determined by
cor. This is done for compatibility with the S-PLUS result. A preferred method of calculation is to use
x, as is done in
Note that the default calculation uses divisor
N for the covariance matrix.
x is a formula then the standard NA-handling is applied to the scores (if requested): see
princomp only handles so-called R-mode PCA, that is feature extraction of variables. If a data matrix is supplied (possibly via a formula) it is required that there are at least as many units as variables. For Q-mode PCA use
princomp returns a list with class
"princomp" containing the following components:
- the standard deviations of the principal components.
- the matrix of variable loadings (i.e., a matrix whose columns contain the eigenvectors). This is of class
- the means that were subtracted.
- the scalings applied to each variable.
- the number of observations.
scores = TRUE, the scores of the supplied data on the principal components. These are non-null only if
xwas supplied, and if
covmatwas also supplied if it was a covariance list. For the formula method,
napredict()is applied to handle the treatment of values omitted by the
- the matched call.
- If relevant.

The signs of the columns of the loadings and scores are arbitrary, and so may differ between different programs for PCA, and even between different builds of R.
