candisc: Visualizing Generalized Canonical Discriminant and Canonical Correlation Analysis

This package includes functions for computing and visualizing generalized canonical discriminant analyses and canonical correlation analysis for a multivariate linear model. Traditional canonical discriminant analysis is restricted to a one-way MANOVA design and is equivalent to canonical correlation analysis between a set of quantitative response variables and a set of dummy variables coded from the factor variable. The candisc package generalizes this to multi-way MANOVA designs for all factors in a multivariate linear model, computing canonical scores and vectors for each term. The graphic functions provide low-rank (1D, 2D, 3D) visualizations of terms in an mlm via the plot.candisc and heplot.candisc methods. Related plots are now provided for canonical correlation analysis when all predictors are quantitative.
