mcmc_rank_prob: Estimate rank probabilities with Markov Chains

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

View source: R/mcmc.rank.R

Description

Performs a probabilistic rank analysis based on an almost uniform sample of possible rankings that preserve a partial ranking.

Usage

1
mcmc_rank_prob(P, rp = nrow(P)^3)

Arguments

P

P A partial ranking as matrix object calculated with neighborhood_inclusion or positional_dominance.

rp

Integer indicating the number of samples to be drawn.

Details

This function can be used instead of exact_rank_prob if the number of elements in P is too large for an exact computation. As a rule of thumb, the number of samples should be at least cubic in the number of elements in P. See vignette("benchmarks",package="netrankr") for guidelines and benchmark results.

Value

expected.rank

Estimated expected ranks of nodes

relative.rank

Matrix containing estimated relative rank probabilities: relative.rank[u,v] is the probability that u is ranked lower than v.
