LinkageFunction Delegate

Functor that computes the linkage (similarity) between two groups.

Namespace: CenterSpace.NMath.Core
Assembly: NMath (in NMath.dll) Version: 7.4
public delegate double Function(
	double Drp,
	double Drq,
	double Dpq,
	double Nr,
	double Np,
	double Nq


Drp  Double
Drq  Double
Dpq  Double
Nr  Double
Np  Double
Nq  Double

Return Value

During cluster analysis when two groups P and Q are united, a Linkage.Function computes the distance between the new group P + Q and another group R. The parameters to the Linkage.Function--which may not necessarily all be used to calculate the result--are the distance between R and P, the distance between R and Q, the distance between P and Q, and the sizes (n) of all three groups.
