Methods for Function rank in Package scidb

Description

rank Returns the sample ranks of the values in a vector. Ties (i.e., equal values) and missing values can be handled in several ways.

Usage

## S4 method for signature 'scidb'
rank(x, na.last = TRUE,
          ties.method = c("average", "first", "random", "max", "min"))

Arguments

x

A scidb vector object.

na.last

NOT USED–for compatability with native R functions only.

ties.method

SciDB supports average or random.

Value

A scidb reference object.

Note

Select either average or random for ties.method. If all components are different (and no 'NA's), the ranks are well defined, with values in 'seq_len(x)'. With some values equal (called 'ties'), the argument 'ties.method' determines the result at the corresponding indices. The random method puts these in random order whereas the default, average, replaces them by their mean.
