Normalizes the input matrix column-wise. The normalization can be executed so that

The common mean level of a column can be configured with a parameter. Normalization is done by subtracting the actual mean of each column and adding the common mean level.

If a column contains missing values, the mean is computed from non-missing values.

Type parameters (generics)


Name Type Mandatory Description
in T (generic) Mandatory Input matrix.


Name Type Description
out T (generic) Output matrix where each column has the same mean.


Name Type Default Description
excludeColumns string "" List of columns excluded from normalization. Normalizes all the numeric columns, so use this if your ID is numeric.
group string "" Label of the column that provides grouping. If given, the normalization is done individually for each unique group instead of the whole table.
lengthOfRange float 2 Length of the range. This parameter is used only with range normalization.
meanOfRange float 0 Common mean level. Each column will have a mean defined by this parameter when using method "mean". When using method "median" this value is added to every value after substraction by median. When using method "range" this parameters shows the mean of the range. This parameter is added to every value after normalization when using "z", "zMedian", or "unit variance" methods.
method string "mean" Possible values are "mean", "median", "range", "z", "zMedian" and "unitVariance" normalizations.
