ci_mean_min {Compind} | R Documentation |
The Mean-Min Function (MMF) is an intermediate case between arithmetic mean
, according to which no unbalance is penalized, and min
function, according to which the penalization is maximum. It depends on two parameters that are respectively related to the intensity of penalization of unbalance (α) and intensity of complementarity (β) among indicators.
