Principal Component for Shape Analysis.
6 views (last 30 days)
I want to make a pca for my shape problem. My X matrix is constituted n = rows (observation) and p = columns (variables). In particular, my matrix is constituted by n = 15000 which are the coordinates of the geoemtrical points of the form and m = 10 are the pazinets. I run the following script in Matlab:
[PC,Mode,eigenvalues,tsquared,variace_perc,Mean_RR] = pca(RR);
Xcentered = Mode*PC';
I would like to be sure to proceed in the right way. From this analysis I get:
PC=matrix of 15000*9
Mode=matrix of 10*9.....
In this way PC represent the principal components for me, are just projection of my date onto the principal component.
Mode is that Matlab call "coeff"....but in this way, what does it represent?
Thank you very much!!!

Per documentation of pca, your "Mode" are " .. the representations of X in the principal component space. Rows of scorecvorrespond to observations, and columns correspond to components". So to get the loading of the 2nd component of the shape vector corresponding to your input signal, you'll want to grab the second column of your "Mode" variable.
