Dominant Flows Selection

Dominant flows selection.

Usage
domflows(mat, w, k)
Arguments
mat
A square matrix of flows.
w
A vector of units weigths (sum of incoming flows, sum of outgoing flows...).
k
A threshold (see 'Details').
Details

This function selects which flow (fij or fji) must be kept. If the ratio weight of destination (wj) / weight of origin (wi) is greater than k, then fij is selected and fji is not. This function can perform the second criterion of the Nystuen & Dacey's dominants flows analysis. As the output is a boolean matrix, use element-wise multiplication to get flows intensity.

Value

A boolean matrix of selected flows.

Examples
# Import data
data(nav)
myflows <- prepflows(mat = nav, i = "i", j = "j", fij = "fij")

# Remove the matrix diagonal
diag(myflows) <- 0

# Select the dominant flows (incoming flows criterion)
flowSel <- domflows(mat = myflows, w = colSums(myflows), k = 1)
statmat(mat = myflows * flowSel, output = "none")
