# Principal Component Analysis - Part III

In this post, we will reproduce the results of a popular paper on PCA. The paper is titled ‘Principal component analysis’ and is authored by Herve Abdi and Lynne J. Williams. It got published in 2010 and since then its popularity has only grown. Its number of citations are more than 4800 as per Google Scholar data (This was the number when this post was last revised).

This post is Part-III of a three part series on PCA. Other parts of the series can be found at the links below.

This post contains code snippets in R. Equivalent MATLAB codes can be written using commands of Part-II. For figures, the reader has to write his/her own code in MATLAB.

### Structure of the paper

Along with basic theory, the paper contains three examples on PCA, one example on correspondence analysis, and one example on multiple factor analysis. We will only focus on PCA examples in this post.

To run following R codes seamlessly, readers have to load following packages. If these packages have not been installed previously, use install.packages("package_name") to install those.

### How to get data

Data for the examples have been taken from the paper . The datasets are pretty small. So one way to read the data is to create a dataframe itself in R using the values given in paper. Otherwise, the values can first be stored in a csv file and then read into R. To make this post self-sufficient, we will adopt the former approach.

# Table 1
# Create a dataframe
Words = c("Bag", "Across", "On", "Insane", "By", "Monastery", "Relief", "Slope", "Scoundrel", "With", "Neither", "Pretentious", "Solid", "This", "For", "Therefore", "Generality", "Arise", "Blot", "Infectious")
Word_length = c(3, 6, 2, 6, 2, 9, 6, 5, 9, 4, 7, 11, 5, 4, 3, 9, 10, 5, 4, 10)
Lines_in_dict = c(14, 7, 11, 9, 9, 4, 8, 11, 5, 8, 2, 4, 12, 9, 8, 1, 4, 13, 15, 6)
words = data.frame(Words, Word_length, Lines_in_dict, stringsAsFactors = F)

### Covariance PCA

Covariance PCA uses centered data matrix. But data matrix is not scaled. prcomp() centers data by default.

pca_words_cov = prcomp(words[,2:3],scale = F) # cov stands for Covariance PCA

Note that we will plot negative of the factor scores of 1st PC to make the figure consistent with the paper. ggplot(as.data.frame(pca_words_cov$x),aes(-pca_words_cov$x[,1],pca_words_cov$x[,2],label = words$Words))+ geom_point()+geom_text_repel()+geom_hline(yintercept = 0)+geom_vline(xintercept = 0)+ xlab("Factor score along PC1")+ylab("Factor score along PC2") ### With supplementary data Given a supplementary point (a point previously not used in finding principal components),we have to first center the data point. Its factor scores can then be obtained by multiplying it with the loading matrix. ### Factor score of the new word ‘sur’ sur = c(3,12) # It has 3 letter and 12 lines of dictionary entry (sur_centered = sur - colMeans(words[,2:3]))  Word_length Lines_in_dict -3 4  (factor_scores_sur = round(sur_centered %*% pca_words_cov$rotation,2))

### Eigenvalues and variance

See Part-II for details.

### Total variance before transformation

(total_var_before = round(sum(diag(var(words_centered))),3))
 23.368

(total_var_after = round(sum(diag(var(pca_words_cov$x))),3))  23.368 Correlation between principal components and original variables (In the paper,this correlation is also termed loading. But we will strictly reserve the loading term to mean loading matrix $$\textbf{P}$$ (see Part-I) The sum of correlation coefficients between variables and principal components is 1. Intuitively, this means that variables are orthogonally projected onto the principal components. ### Correlation matrix # Correlation between PCs and original variables (cor(pca_words_cov$x,words_centered))

However our procedure is correct and it does indeed give the correct answer for supplementary data as described below.

This is because our first principal component is negative of the one given in paper. So while computing correlation score, this negative principal component results in negative correlation scores. Hence, our plot flips about y-axis.

## Example 2 (Wine example)

### Correlation PCA with wine data

This is a minor discrepancy. Our 2nd eigenvector is negative of the one considered in paper. We can match the plot with that of the paper by just flipping the second principal component but we will not do that here. ### Factor scores along 1st and 2nd PC # Table 7 (pca_wine_cor$x[,1:2])

Rotation is applied to loading matrix such that after rotation principal components are interpretable. By interpretable, we mean, some of the loading scores will have higher values and some other loading scores will have lower values. So it can be said that the variables whose loading scores have higher value, contribute significantly towards principal components as compared to other variables with lesser loading scores. Though rotation works in certain cases, it must be remembered that it is no magic wand for principal component interpretability. One of the popular rotations is Varimax rotation. R has a built-in command to perform varimax rotation.

Varimax rotation can be performed on the whole loading matrix or on a few components only. In the paper, varimax has been applied to first two principal components.

# Table 13
(round(pca_food_cov$rotation[,1:2]^2,2))  PC1 PC2 bread 0.01 0.33 vegetables 0.11 0.17 fruit 0.09 0.01 meat 0.57 0.01 poultry 0.22 0.06 milk 0.01 0.40 wine 0.00 0.02 Note that this table doesn’t match with that of the paper. We will stick to our analysis. ### Correlation score (corr_score_food = round((cor(pca_food_cov$x,food[,3:9])[1:2,]),2))
    bread vegetables fruit meat poultry  milk  wine
PC1  0.36       0.91  0.96 1.00    0.98  0.41 -0.43
PC2 -0.87      -0.35  0.10 0.04    0.16 -0.88 -0.33

(round((cor(pca_food_cov$x,food[,3:9])[1:2,])^2,2))  bread vegetables fruit meat poultry milk wine PC1 0.13 0.83 0.92 1 0.96 0.17 0.18 PC2 0.76 0.12 0.01 0 0.03 0.77 0.11 ### Correlation circle for food data # Figure 9 corr_score_food = t(corr_score_food) circle + geom_point(data = as.data.frame(corr_score_food), aes(x = corr_score_food[,1],y = corr_score_food[,2]))+ geom_text_repel(data = as.data.frame(corr_score_food), aes(x = corr_score_food[,1],y = corr_score_food[,2], label = c("Bread","Vegetables","Fruit","Meat","Poultry","Milk","Wine"))) Now observe that our correlation circle plot is almost close to that of the papers (though in opposite quadrants. But this is not a problem as we have previously mentioned). ### Eigenvalues Eigenvalues of data covariance matrix is square of singular values of centered data matrix. Hence eigenvalues of data covariance matrix can be obtained as below. ## Table 14 cent_food = food[,3:9]-matrix(rep(colMeans(food[,3:9]),times = 12),nrow = 12, byrow = T) svd_food = svd(cent_food) (Eigenvalues = (svd_food$d)^2)
 3023141.2354  290575.8390   68795.2333   25298.9496   22992.2474
    3722.3214     723.9238

Important Note: These eigenvalues are not the same as variance of factor scores in principal components. Variance of principal component factor scores can be obtained by dividing the eigenvalues by $$(n-1)$$, where $$n$$ is number of data points (in this case $$n = 12$$). If this point is still not clear, refer to Part-II.

### Percentage contribution of each principal component

(round(Eigenvalues/sum(Eigenvalues),2))
 0.88 0.08 0.02 0.01 0.01 0.00 0.00

### Cumulative sum of eigenvalues

(round(cumsum(Eigenvalues),2))
 3023141 3313717 3382512 3407811 3430804 3434526 3435250

### Cumulative percentage contribution

(round(cumsum(Eigenvalues)/sum(Eigenvalues),2))
 0.88 0.96 0.98 0.99 1.00 1.00 1.00

### RESS (Refer to the paper for a description)

RESS = array(rep(0,7))
for (i in 1:7){
RESS[i] = sum(Eigenvalues)-sum(Eigenvalues[1:i])
}
RESS
 412108.5146 121532.6756  52737.4423  27438.4927   4446.2453    723.9238
      0.0000

### Ratio of RESS and sum of eigenvalues

round(RESS/sum(Eigenvalues),2)
 0.12 0.04 0.02 0.01 0.00 0.00 0.00

We will not calculate the value of PRESS in this post as it requires us to consider random models. We will not pursue that here.
