Documented in is_preserved

#' @title Check preservation
#' @description Checks if a partial ranking is preserved in the ranking induced by `scores`.
#' @param P A partial ranking as matrix object calculated with [neighborhood_inclusion]
#'    or [positional_dominance].
#' @param scores Numeric vector containing the scores of a centrality index.
#' @details In order for a score vector to preserve a partial ranking, the following
#' condition must be fulfilled:
#' \code{P[u,v]==1 & scores[i]<=scores[j]}.
#' @return Logical scaler whether \code{scores} preserves the relations in \code{P}.
