wardinit {ClustGeo} | R Documentation |
This function calculates the Ward aggregation measures between pairs of singletons.
wardinit(D, wt = NULL)
D |
a object of class "dist" with the dissimilarities between the n obsevations.
The function |
wt |
vector with the weights of the observations. By default, wt=NULL corresponds to the case where all observations are weighted by 1/n. |
The Ward agreggation measure between to singletons i and j weighted by wi and wj is : (wiwj)/(wi+wj)dij^2 where dij is the dissimilarity between i and j.
Returns an object of class dist with the Ward aggregation measures between the n singletons.
