distancePermutationPosition {CEGO}R Documentation

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)
