index_maxprod {agop}R Documentation

Kosmulski's MAXPROD-index

Description

Given a sequence of n non-negative numbers x=(x_1,…,x_n), where x_i ≥ x_j ≥ 0 for i ≤ j, the MAXPROD-index (Kosmulski, 2007) for x is defined as

MAXPROD(x)=max{i x_i: i=1,…,n}

Usage

index_maxprod(x)

Arguments

x

a non-negative numeric vector

Details

If a non-increasingly sorted vector is given, the function has O(n) run-time.

The MAXPROD index is the same as the discrete Shilkret integral of x w.r.t. the counting measure.

See index_lp for a natural generalization.

Value

a single numeric value
