computeCrowdingDistance {ecr} R Documentation

Compute the crowding distance of a set of points.

Description

The crowding distance is a measure of spread of solutions in the approximation of the Pareto front. It is used, e.g., in the NSGA-II algorithm as a second selection criterion.

Usage

computeCrowdingDistance(x)


Arguments

 x [matrix] Numeric matrix with each column representing a point.

Value

[numeric] Vector of crowding distance values.
