Calculates an inverted Lijphart index of proportionality based on a population vector and a vector for the representatives

1 | ```
LijphartInv(Z,R)
``` |

`Z` |
Population vector |

`R` |
Vector for the representatives |

The order of the groups in he population vector and the vector for the representatives needs to be the same. If there are groups A, B, C in the population, both vectors need to cover their proportion in the same order.

The inverted Lijphart index gives 1 minus the largest of the absolute differences between the proportion of the population and representatives in each group.

A single score given the population and representatives
