## Position Distance for Permutations

### Description

Position distance (or Spearmans Correlation Coefficient), scaled to values between 0 and 1.

### Usage

```
distancePermutationPosition(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)
