sklearn.decomposition
.PCA¶
- class sklearn.decomposition.PCA(n_components=None, *, copy=True, whiten=False, svd_solver='auto', tol=0.0, iterated_power='auto', n_oversamples=10, power_iteration_normalizer='auto', random_state=None)[source]¶
Principal component analysis (PCA).
Linear dimensionality reduction using Singular Value Decomposition of the data to project it to a lower dimensional space. The input data is centered but not scaled for each feature before applying the SVD.
It uses the LAPACK implementation of the full SVD or a randomized truncated SVD by the method of Halko et al. 2009, depending on the shape of the input data and the number of components to extract.
It can also use the scipy.sparse.linalg ARPACK implementation of the truncated SVD.
Notice that this class does not support sparse input. See
TruncatedSVD
for an alternative with sparse data.For a usage example, see PCA example with Iris Data-set

- Parameters:
- n_componentsint, float or ‘mle’, default=None
Number of components to keep. if n_components is not set all components are kept:
n_components == min(n_samples, n_features)
If
n_components == 'mle'
andsvd_solver == 'full'
, Minka’s MLE is used to guess the dimension. Use ofn_components == 'mle'
will interpretsvd_solver == 'auto'
assvd_solver == 'full'
.If
0 < n_components < 1
andsvd_solver == 'full'
, select the number of components such that the amount of variance that needs to be explained is greater than the percentage specified by n_components.If
svd_solver == 'arpack'
, the number of components must be strictly less than the minimum of n_features and n_samples.Hence, the None case results in:
n_components == min(n_samples, n_features) - 1
- copybool, default=True
If False, data passed to fit are overwritten and running fit(X).transform(X) will not yield the expected results, use fit_transform(X) instead.
- whitenbool, default=False
When True (False by default) the
components_
vectors are multiplied by the square root of n_samples and then divided by the singular values to ensure uncorrelated outputs with unit component-wise variances.Whitening will remove some information from the transformed signal (the relative variance scales of the components) but can sometime improve the predictive accuracy of the downstream estimators by making their data respect some hard-wired assumptions.
- svd_solver{‘auto’, ‘full’, ‘arpack’, ‘randomized’}, default=’auto’
- If auto :
The solver is selected by a default policy based on
X.shape
andn_components
: if the input data is larger than 500x500 and the number of components to extract is lower than 80% of the smallest dimension of the data, then the more efficient ‘randomized’ method is enabled. Otherwise the exact full SVD is computed and optionally truncated afterwards.- If full :
run exact full SVD calling the standard LAPACK solver via
scipy.linalg.svd
and select the components by postprocessing- If arpack :
run SVD truncated to n_components calling ARPACK solver via
scipy.sparse.linalg.svds
. It requires strictly 0 < n_components < min(X.shape)- If randomized :
run randomized SVD by the method of Halko et al.
New in version 0.18.0.
- tolfloat, default=0.0
Tolerance for singular values computed by svd_solver == ‘arpack’. Must be of range [0.0, infinity).
New in version 0.18.0.
- iterated_powerint or ‘auto’, default=’auto’
Number of iterations for the power method computed by svd_solver == ‘randomized’. Must be of range [0, infinity).
New in version 0.18.0.
- n_oversamplesint, default=10
This parameter is only relevant when
svd_solver="randomized"
. It corresponds to the additional number of random vectors to sample the range ofX
so as to ensure proper conditioning. Seerandomized_svd
for more details.New in version 1.1.
- power_iteration_normalizer{‘auto’, ‘QR’, ‘LU’, ‘none’}, default=’auto’

randomized_svd
for more details.New in version 1.1.
- random_stateint, RandomState instance or None, default=None
Used when the ‘arpack’ or ‘randomized’ solvers are used. Pass an int for reproducible results across multiple function calls. See Glossary.
New in version 0.18.0.
