calcContinuityFromDist | R Documentation |

The continuity was proposed by Venna and Kaski, as a local quality measure of
a low-dimensional representation. The metric focuses on the preservation of
local neighborhoods, and compares the neighborhoods of points in the
low-dimensional representation to those in the reference data. Hence, the
continuity measure indicates to which degree we can trust that the points
closest to a given sample in the reference data set are placed close to the
sample also in the low-dimensional representation. The `kTM`

parameter
defines the size of the neighborhoods to consider.

```
calcContinuityFromDist(distReference, distLowDim, kTM)
```

`distReference` |
N x N matrix or dist object, representing pairwise sample distances based on the reference (high-dimensional) observed values. For each column, samples (rows) will be ranked by the provided distances. |

`kTM` |
The number of nearest neighbors (excluding the sample itself). |

`rankLowDim` |
N x N matrix or dist object, representing pairwise sample distances based on the low-dimensional representation. For each column, samples (rows) will be ranked by the provided distances. |

The continuity value.
