LinkageFunction Delegate

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

Namespace:  CenterSpace.NMath.Core
Assembly:  NMath (in NMath.dll) Version: 7.3
Syntax
public delegate double Function(
	double Drp,
	double Drq,
	double Dpq,
	double Nr,
	double Np,
	double Nq
)

Parameters

Drp
Type: SystemDouble
Drq
Type: SystemDouble
Dpq
Type: SystemDouble
Nr
Type: SystemDouble
Np
Type: SystemDouble
Nq
Type: SystemDouble

Return Value

Type: Double
Remarks
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.
