Produce table of dominant quartets, with estimates of internal edge lengths

Description

Converts table of counts of resolved quartets on n taxa to show only dominant one, with maximum likelihood estimate of internal edge weight under the MSC.

Usage

quartetTableDominant(rqt, bigweights = "infinite")

Arguments

rqt

a table, as produced by quartetTableResolved of size (n choose 4)x(n+3);

bigweights

"infinite" or "finite", to indicate whether the weight (internal edge length) of a quartet for which only one topology appears is given as Inf or a finite, but large, numerical value

Details

If bigweights="finite", when for a set of 4 taxa the quartet counts are (m,0,0) then the edge weight is computed as if the relative frequency of the dominant topology were m/(m+1).

Value

an (n choose 4)x(n+1) array with dominant quartet topology encoded by 1,1,-1,-1 in taxon columns, with signs indicating cherries; the (n+1)th column "weight" contains the maximum likelihood estimates, under MSC on a 4-taxon tree, of the quartets' central edge lengths, in coalescent units
