# compare.clust: Make all estimated clusters agree with a pivot allocation In label.switching: Relabelling MCMC Outputs of Mixture Models

## Description

Given a pivot allocation vector, a set of simulated allocations and a set of permutations from different relabelling algorithms, this function relabels the permutations so that all methods maximize their similarity with the pivot. This is helpful when comparing different different label switching algorithms.

## Usage

 1 compare.clust(pivot.clust,perms,z,K) 

## Arguments

 pivot.clust a pivot allocation vector of the n observations among the K clusters. perms a list containing f permutation arrays, as returned by label.switching function. z a set of simulated allocation arrays. K number of mixture components

## Value

 similarity  (f+1) K\times (f+1) matrix containing the similarity coefficient of the resulting clusters. clusters  f\times n array of single best clusterings, relabelled in order to maximize their similarity with pivot.clust. permutations  releaballed permutations.
