Description

Differential evolution algorithm for median ranking detection. It works with full, tied and partial rankings. The solution con be constrained to be a full ranking or a tied ranking

Usage

1
DECOR(X, Wk = NULL, NP = 15, L = 100, FF = 0.4, CR = 0.9, FULL = FALSE)

Arguments

X

A N by M data matrix, in which there are N judges and M objects to be judged. Each row is a ranking of the objects which are represented by the columns. Alternatively X can contain the rankings observed only once. In this case the argument Wk must be used

Wk

Optional: the frequency of each ranking in the data

NP

The number of population individuals

L

Generations limit: maximum number of consecutive generations without improvement

FF

The scaling rate for mutation. Must be in [0,1]

CR

The crossover range. Must be in [0,1]

FULL

Default FULL=FALSE. If FULL=TRUE, the searching is limited to the space of full rankings.

Details

This function is deprecated and it will be removed in the next release of the package. Use function 'consrank' instead.

Value

a "list" containing the following components:

Consensus the Consensus Ranking
Tau averaged TauX rank correlation coefficient
Eltime Elapsed time in seconds
