MeshRatio measure

Description

The meshRatio criterion is the ratio between the maximimum and the minimum distance between two points of the experimental design.

Usage

meshRatio(design)

Arguments

design

a matrix (or a data.frame) representing the design of experiments in the unit cube [0,1]^d. If this last condition is not fulfilled, a transformation into [0,1]^{d} is applied before the computation of the criteria.

Details

The meshRatio criterion is defined by

meshRatio=\frac{\max_{1\leq i \leq n} \gamma_{i}}{\min_{1\leq i \leq n} \gamma_{i}}

where \gamma_{i} denotes the minimal distance between the point x_{i} and the other points of the design.

Note that for a regular mesh, meshRatio=1.

Value

A real number equal to the value of the meshRatio criterion for the design.
