mindist {DiceDesign}R Documentation

Mindist measure

Description

Compute the mindist criterion (also called maximin)

Usage

mindist(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 mindist criterion is defined by

mindist= \min_{x_{i}\in X} \left( \gamma_{i} \right)

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

A higher value corresponds to a more regular scaterring of design points.

Value

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