\title{ Isometric log-ratio transformation }
\description{
  An isometric log-ratio transformation with a special choice of the balances according to Hron et al. (2010).
}
\usage{
isomLR(x)
}
%- maybe also 'usage' for other objects documented here.
\arguments{
  \item{x}{ object of class data.frame or matrix with positive entries}
}
\details{
The isomLR transformation moves D-part compositional data from the simplex into a (D-1)-dimensional real space isometrically.
  From this choice of the balances, all the relative information of the part \eqn{x_1} 
  from the remaining parts is separated. It is useful for estimating missing values in 
  \eqn{x_1} by regression of the remaining variables.
