comparing.Partitions {clusterSim}R Documentation

Calculate agreement indices between two partitions

Description

Calculate agreement indices between two partitions

Usage

comparing.Partitions(cl1,cl2,type="nowak")

Arguments

cl1

A vector of integers (or letters) indicating the cluster to which each object is allocated for first clustering

cl2

A vector of integers (or letters) indicating the cluster to which each object is allocated for second clustering

type

"rand" - for Rand index, "crand" - for adjusted Rand index or "nowak" for Nowak index

Details

See file \$R\_HOME\library\clusterSim\pdf\comparingPartitions\_details.pdf for further details.

Rand and adjusted Rand indices uses classAgreement function from e1071 library.

Value

Returns value of index.
