VptreeIndex: The VptreeIndex class

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

View source: R/VptreeIndex-class.R

Description

A class to hold the vantage point tree for exact nearest neighbor identification.

Usage

1
VptreeIndex(data, nodes, order, NAMES = NULL, distance = "Euclidean")

Arguments

data

A numeric matrix with data points in columns and dimensions in rows.

nodes

A list of vectors specifying the structure of the VP tree.

order

An integer vector of length equal to ncol(data), specifying the order of observations.

NAMES

A character vector of sample names or NULL.

distance

A string specifying the distance metric to use.

Details

The VptreeIndex class holds the indexing structure required to run the VP tree algorithm. Users should never need to call the constructor explicitly, but should generate instances of VptreeIndex classes with buildVptree.

Users can get values from a VptreeIndex object with the usual [[ syntax. All parameters listed in the constructor can be extracted in this manner.

Value

An instance of the VptreeIndex class.
