getwl | R Documentation |

Function to obtain win and loss measures at individual level from the observed sociomatrix.

getwl(X, names=NULL, method=c("Dij","Pij"))

`X` |
Empirical sociomatrix containing wins-losses frequencies in dyadic encounters. The matrix must be square and numeric. |

`names` |
Character vector with the names of individuals. This vector is NULL by default |

`method` |
A character string indicating which dyadic dominance measure is to be used for the computation of David's scores. One of "Dij" or "Pij", can be abbreviated. |

By means of the empirical sociomatrix of wins and losses this function computes several win-loss measures at individual level. Specifically, it computes *w*, *weighted.w*, *l* and *weighted.l*. *w* is the sum of individuals' dyadic dominances Dij or the sum of proportions of wins Pij by rows, depending on the specification of the *method*. *weighted.w* measures is the sum of individuals' Dij or Pij values weighted by the *w* values of their interactants. *l* is the sum of individuals' dyadic dominance indices Dij or the sum of individuals' proportions of wins Pij by columns. And finally, *weighted.l* is the columns sum of individuals' Dij or Pij values weighted by the *l* values of their interactants. These measures are used when computing David's scores.

The result is a data frame with the following components:

`w` |
Sum of dyadic dominance indices Dij or proportions of wins Pij by rows. |

`weighted.w` |
Weighted sum of dyadic dominance indices Dij or proportions of wins Pij. |

`l` |
Sum of dyadic dominance indices Dij or proportions of wins Pij by columns. |

`weighted.l` |
Weighted sum of dyadic dominance indices Dij or proportions of wins Pij. |
