An S4 Class implementing Non-Metric Dimensional Scaling.

## Slots

`fun`

A function that does the embedding and returns a dimRedResult object.

`stdpars`

The standard parameters for the function.

## General usage

Dimensionality reduction methods are S4 Classes that either be used
directly, in which case they have to be initialized and a full
list with parameters has to be handed to the `@fun()`

slot, or the method name be passed to the embed function and
parameters can be given to the `...`

, in which case
missing parameters will be replaced by the ones in the
`@stdpars`

.

## Parameters

nMDS can take the following parameters:

- d
A distance function.

- ndim
The number of embedding dimensions.

## Implementation

Wraps around the
`monoMDS`

. For parameters that are not
available here, the standard configuration is used.
