Given multiple histograms represented as "histogram" S3 objects, compute Wasserstein barycenter. We need one requirement that all histograms in an input list hists must have same breaks. See the example on how to construct a histogram on predefined breaks/bins.

## Usage

histbary15B(hists, p = 2, weights = NULL, lambda = NULL, ...)

## Arguments

hists

a length-$$N$$ list of histograms ("histogram" object) of same breaks.

p

an exponent for the order of the distance (default: 2).

weights

a weight of each image; if NULL (default), uniform weight is set. Otherwise, it should be a length-$$N$$ vector of nonnegative weights.

lambda

a regularization parameter; if NULL (default), a paper's suggestion would be taken, or it should be a nonnegative real number.

...

extra parameters including

abstol

stopping criterion for iterations (default: 1e-8).

init.vec

an initial weight vector (default: uniform weight).

maxiter

maximum number of iterations (default: 496).

number of threads for OpenMP run (default: 1).

print.progress

a logical to show current iteration (default: TRUE).

## Value

a "histogram" object of barycenter.

# GENERATE FROM TWO GAUSSIANS WITH DIFFERENT MEANS
set.seed(100)
x  = stats::rnorm(1000, mean=-4, sd=0.5)
y  = stats::rnorm(1000, mean=+4, sd=0.5)
bk = seq(from=-10, to=10, length.out=20)

# HISTOGRAMS WITH COMMON BREAKS
histxy = list()
histxy[[1]] = hist(x, breaks=bk, plot=FALSE)
histxy[[2]] = hist(y, breaks=bk, plot=FALSE)

# COMPUTE
hh = histbary15B(histxy, maxiter=5)

# VISUALIZE
barplot(histxy[[1]]$density, col=rgb(0,0,1,1/4), ylim=c(0, 0.75), main="Two Histograms") barplot(histxy[[2]]$density, col=rgb(1,0,0,1/4),
