Description

Merging components step

Usage

1
merge_step(post, omega, lambda, f_omega = NULL, f_lambda = NULL)

Arguments

post

Matrix with the posterior probabilities

omega

String giving the function name used to build the hierarchy. Available functions are: entr, prop, dich

lambda

String giving the function name used to build the hierarchy. Available functions are: entr, demp, demp.mod, coda, coda.norm, prop

f_omega

function with two parameters (v_tau, a). Parameter v_tau is a vector of probabilities, parameter a is the a selected class. omega(v_tau, a) gives the representativeness of element with probabities v_tau to class a

f_lambda

function with three parameters (v_tau, a, b). Parameter v_tau is a vector of probabilities, parameters a and b are classes to be combined.

Value

partition returns a matrix with all values for all possible mergings using functions 'omega' and 'lambda'
