Description

FAST algorithm to find consensus (median) ranking.

FAST algorithm to find consensus (median) ranking defined by Amodio, D'Ambrosio and Siciliano (2016). It returns at least one of the solutions. If there are multiple solutions, sometimes it returns all the solutions, sometimes it returns some solutions, always it returns at least one solution.

Usage

1
FASTcons(X, Wk = NULL, maxiter = 50, FULL = FALSE, PS = FALSE)

Arguments

X

is a ranking data matrix

Wk

is a vector of weights

maxiter

maximum number of iterations: default = 50.

FULL

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

PS

Default PS=FALSE. If PS=TRUE the number of current iteration is diplayed

Value

a "list" containing the following components:

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

##data(EMD)
##X=EMD[,1:15]
##Wk=matrix(EMD[,16],nrow=nrow(X))
##CR=FASTcons(X,Wk,maxiter=100)
##These lines produce all the three solutions in less than a minute.
