An object returned from a call to GetStabilityUnion.

`union`

:A numeric vector of scores derived from union counts, normalized such that 1 is the maximum attainable value. The entries correspond to the positions in the list such that the

`i`

-th entry contains the score derived from the union count up to position`i`

.`unionscore`

:A numeric vector of union scores, arranged analogously to

`union`

.`noinformation`

:A list containing an approximation to the expected union count and -score if

`noinformation`

in GetStabilityUnion has been set to a positive integer. Otherwise, the list is empty.`decay`

The decay scheme used for the weights, s. GetStabilityUnion.

Use

`show(object)`

for brief information.- plot
`plot(object, frac=1/50, ...)`

produces a graphical display of the union count (upper panel) and union score (lower panel) for increasing list position, ranging from`1`

to`frac*number of genes`

. The`...`

argument may be used to modify graphical options.
