distancePermutationSwap {CEGO}R Documentation

Swap-Distance for Permutations

Description

The swap distance is an edit-distance, counting how many edit operation (here: swaps, i.e., transposition of two adjacent elements) have to be performed to transform permutation x into permutation y. Note: In v2.4.0 of CEGO and earlier, this function actually computed the swap distance on the inverted permutations (i.e., on the rankings, rather than orderin). This is now (v2.4.1 and later) corrected by inverting the permutations x and y before computing the distance (ie. computing ordering first). The original behavior can be reproduced by distancePermutationSwapInv.

Usage

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