Description Usage Arguments Value

View source: R/elaborator_calculate_spearman_distance.R


This function derives the Spearman correlation coefficients for a data matrix and transforms the resulting similarity matrix into a distance/dissimilarity matrix. No difference is made between positive and negative correlations, i.e., correlations of -1 and 1 will be transformed to a distance of 0; correlations of 0 will be transformed to a distance of 1. Missing values in the input data will be handled by casewise deletion.





data matrix for which a distance matrix based on the Spearman correlation coefficient is calculated


A distance matrix of class "dist", which can be used for example for a seriation algorithm
