aggregate_positions: Quantification of (indirect) relations

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) See Also Examples

View source: R/aggregate.index.R

Description

Function to aggregate positions defined via indirect relations to construct centrality scores.

Usage

1
aggregate_positions(tau_x, type = "sum")

Arguments

tau_x

Numeric matrix containing indirect relations calculated with indirect_relations.

type

String indicating the type of aggregation to be used. See Details for options.

Details

The predefined functions are mainly wrappers around base R functions. type='sum', for instance, is equivalent to rowSums(). A non-base functions is type='invsum' which calculates the inverse of type='sum'. type='self' is mostly useful for walk based relations, e.g. to count closed walks. Other self explanatory options are type='mean', type='min', type='max' and type='prod'.

Value

Scores for the index defined by the indirect relation tau_x and the used aggregation type.
