Class ser_permutation_vector --

The class ser_permutation_vector represents a single permutation vector.

Keywords
classes
Usage
## constructor
ser_permutation_vector(x, method = NULL)
Arguments
x
an object which contains a permutation vector (currently an integer vector or an object of class hclust). The value NA creates an identity permutation.
method
a string representing the method used to obtain the permutation vector
Details

A permutation vector maps a set of \(n\) objects \(\{O_1, O_2, ..., O_n\}\) onto itself. In seriation we represent a permutation \(\pi\) as a vector which lists the objects in their permuted order. For example, the permutation vector \(\langle3, 1, 2\rangle\) indicates that in first position is the object with index 3 then the object with index 1 and finally the object with index 2. A permutation vector can be extracted from a permuation vector object via get_order(). Such a permutation vector can be directly used to subset the list of original objects with "[" to apply the permutation. Note: An alternative way to specify a permutation is via a list of the ranks of the objects after permutation (see get_rank()).

ser_permutation_vector objects are usually packed into a ser_permutation object which is a collection of \(k\) permutation vectors for \(k\)-mode data.

The constructor ser_permutation_vector checks if the permutation vector is valid (i.e. if all integers occur exactly once).

The following functions are implemented: print, rev, length, get_order, get_rank, get_method.

Value

An object of class ser_permutation_vector.
