## Cosine Distance for Permutations

### Description

The Cosine distance for permutations is derived from the Cosine similarity measure which has been applied in fields like text mining. It is based on the scalar product of two vectors (here: permutations).

### Usage

```
distancePermutationCos(x, y)
```

### Arguments

`x` |
first permutation (integer vector) |

`y` |
second permutation (integer vector) |

### Value

numeric distance value

`d(x,y)`

, scaled to values between 0 and 1 (based on the maximum possible distance between two permutations)

### Examples

```
x <- 1:5
y <- c(5,1,2,3,4)
distancePermutationCos(x,y)
p <- replicate(10,sample(1:5),simplify=FALSE)
distanceMatrix(p,distancePermutationCos)
```
